They may need a while to get accustomed to completely different textures and tastes or they could eat up right away.

Your baby's kidneys can't cope with salt yet. It's best not to encourage a liking for it, anyway. Don't blend adult ready-meals for your baby. Ready meals contain high levels of salt.

2. Honey

Don't be tempted to add a little tea to your baby's bottle to warm his milk. The tannin in tea may prevent him from absorbing the iron in his food properly. Any caffeinated drink is unsuitable for your baby.

Low-calorie spreads, yogurts and reduced-fat cheeses aren't right for your baby. Always offer your baby the full-fat versions. He needs the calories.

 

9. Some vegetables

Cooked and pureed (or even offered raw), some common vegetables such as beets, spinach, fennel, collard greens and lettuce contain levels of nitrates too high for your baby to process.

Babies under a year old don’t have strong enough stomach acids to break down the nitrates, which block the blood’s ability to transport oxygen. This can lead to dangerously low levels of oxygen, known as Blue Baby Syndrome.

 

Some foods carry a risk of food poisoning. To be on the safe side, don't give your baby:

 

1. Soft, mould-ripened cheeses, such as brie or camembert.
