These Christmas baby food ideas and tips for the holiday season will help you make baby’s first Christmas extra special!
Your baby’s first Christmas is simply a magical time – for him AND for you! It’s a time to introduce your little one to the wonderful traditions you grew up with and an opportunity for you to re-create wonderful memories from your own childhood.
Of course, your baby is a little young to appreciate or understand all that’s going on at this busy time.
But there’s no doubt that he can enjoy the warm family feelings that Christmas evokes – not to mention the sparkling decorations and lights, the music and (hopefully) the extra attention from all your visitors!
Christmas dinner for baby can be put together quite easily from your meal, which is traditionally full of healthy veggies – but exactly what you give your baby depends, of course, on his age and stage of development.
And, even though it’s Christmas and you’re anxious to include your baby at the Christmas meal, you should still introduce new foods separately and with the consent of his doctor.
This is to prevent and identify food allergies and digestive problems.
Traditional pumpkin, sweet potato and apple pies contain sugar and eggs,so we do not recommend that you give them to a baby under one year of age. UK favourites, such as mince pie and Christmas pudding, are also unsuitable for young babies.
Instead, why not give your baby a treat with these healthy Christmas baby food alternatives…
