Variety is the spice of life

There is some evidence to show that the more foods, textures and flavours you can introduce to your baby during weaning, the less fussy he/she will be later on in life. Don’t be scared to rattle through new foods but repetition of foods is also important. Tasting a food or drink more often increases the liking for it so don’t give up!

TOP TIP: Try to strike a good balance between introducing new flavours and repeating old ones.
