Feeding your baby at 10 - 12 months
10 - 12 months: feeding your baby
Learn how to include all the different food groups in your baby's daily menu and how to encourage healthy eating habits.
Now your baby is becoming even more mobile and curious, their nutritional needs are changing as they need the extra goodness to keep them going throughout the day. However, as they have a smaller tummy than you, they need to eat little meals that are full of energy and nutrients, more often.
Although it can be quite messy, continue to encourage your baby to get stuck in during mealtimes! Drinking from a beaker, getting to grips with finger food, or having a go at spoon feeding are all great ways of developing your baby's co-ordination skills as well as their independent streak. And, as your baby starts to take pride in what they do, encouraging their efforts during feeding will help build self-confidence.
