Paediatricians usually recommend that you start offering solid foods when your baby reaches six months old. Some babies may be ready as early as four months old. More studies have shown that 4 – 6 months is the most optimal window period to reduce your baby’s chances of developing a food allergy.

Here are simple first food fruit puree recipes that you can make fresh without cooking.
