Baby foods



As the baby matures, you can introduce more foods. Keep the same techniques in mind: make sure foods are cooked (steamed, baked, sauteed) and then pureed. You may need to try the same food 5-10 times before they show interest. In Asia, they use rice milk, it is a great alternative to dairy and formula.


Phase 2. About 8-12 months or whenever they are out of Phase 1.

Broccoli, cauliflower, kale, bok choy

Cabbage (red or green, but very well cooked)

Cooked cherries, cooked dates

Wild salmon

Organic chicken, homemade chicken stock and/or bone broth

Virgin coconut oil, organic avocado oil


Phase 3. About one year old.

At about one year you can introduce organic grains. There is one grain above all, however and that is rice. Congee, which is rice cooked with extra water or stock for a long time is considered a super healing food for babies, elderly or those with gastrointestinal problems.


Congee particularly benefits the Spleen, Stomach and Intestines and is most suitable for babies because it is nourishing, hydrating and yields instant energy. In Chinese the symbol for rice gives way to Qi (our vital energy). It is a great source of B-complex vitamins, non-allergen food and soothes conditions like eczema, diarrhea and constipation. Make sure to cook the rice until it's so soft that you don't even see the individual shape of the rice.


For grains, be sure to soak them overnight in water to increase digestibility. Cook them longer in at least twice the amount of water to create a porridge or congee. You can add in nourishing vegetables and warming spices (fennel, black pepper, ginger, cardamom, and/or cinnamon).


Oats – certified gluten free: steel cut or old fashioned, no instant type.

Rice, quinoa

Red lentils (soak overnight also)

Avocado

Berries (cooked)

Potatoes, red beets
