Now I'm going to talk about the top three baby food myths. The number one being that babies must start out on right cereal. It's just not true. Any processed boxed cereal that you're going to see on shelves at grocery stores has been processed close to ten times and will have almost no nutritional contents and there're also be many additives, stabilizers and chemicals in order to make it shelf stable.

The best thing you can do is go straight to fruit and veges. There's no reason to have cereals at all and it's good to introduce greens by, you would wanna do that closer to seven or eight months of age, simply to add texture and flavor.

The second myth is to use the four day weight role. Unless your family has some sort of history with allergies, you really should just start by introducing fruit and vegetables, a wide rainbow diet, to make sure your child is getting all the nutrients and vitamins they need. Of course, speak to your pediatrician if you have family history of alleges but otherwise there's no reason to hold off on introducing multiple fruits and vegetables straight from beginning. And the final myth is that babies must have shelf stable baby food and brand baby food at that.

The truth is that babies can eat exactly what adult eats. Aside from honey, they can eat fish, meat, diary products, greens and all fruit and vegetables. So there's no reason that you need to believe you must have shelf stable baby food. And those are the top three myths of baby food.
