Whole grain cereal: Typically you will start solid food intake between 4-6 months of age. Generally the first food a baby tries is rice cereal. This can be mixed with breast milk or formula and is easy to digest. See "whiteout" on facebook to learn about a new campaign to make every child's first food a whole grain cereal instead of white processed rice cereal.

Cereal; single foods: Start at age 6 months with baby cereal mixed with water or formula. Then try the small, single-ingredient jars of baby food veggies. If that goes well, then try the baby food fruits; and later the meats. If making home-made baby food, just use similar flavors as the ready-made jars, such as peas, sweet potato, apple sauce, banana, lamb, etc.

Babies first foods: For the average baby with no issues solid foods are usually startede at 4-6 months. Baby cereals such as rice, oatmeal, barley fortified with rice are started first. I usually recommend veggies next since they are less sweet than fruits, then lastly meats stage one. New foods(one at a time) are given for 4days early in the day or at lunch time to make sure there are no reactions or allergies.
