* One should be very structured in introducing babies to solid foods. Do not introduce them to too many different flavors at once, and keep the variety of foods to safe, bland choices.
** Rice cereals should be offered first (unless your particular doctor says they’re now poisonous…much debate is currently in action over the efficacy and benefit of rice cereal), then fruits and vegetables, one at a time. Go very slowly with the introduction of new flavors to test for allergies and baby’s ability to digest and like new foods.
*** One should especially not introduce babies to sugar too early – certainly not as one of their first foods. This can be very detrimental to the development of their taste buds and their desire to eat normal foods.
**** One should never give a baby chocolate – and never even consider giving a baby anything espresso flavored, unless they want to put their own sanity and ability to sleep at extreme risk.
