By six months, you should look out for your baby's first tooth - if they haven't started appearing already! At this stage you should be introducing solids. Making up fresh purees in such tiny portions can seem a waste of time, so make quantities of a variety of vegetable purees, pop them into ice cube trays and freeze them. At mealtimes you can give a varied repertoir by mixing different purees in different quantities. Either defrost the cubes by leaving them in the fridge overnight, or thaw them more instantly in the microwave. Exposing your baby to a variety of foods at this stage does not guarantee that they will happily eat all of the same foods later on, but it will ensure a healthy and balanced diet!
