I remember a mum who was confused about complementary feeding to introduce solids to her 8 month old child for the first time. Most first time mums have many questions regarding the introduction of complementary food. I provided a simple step-by-step process for her to follow and she eventually succeeded!

With over 10 years of extensive experience in child nutrition advisory and having two beautiful kids of my own, I can relate to mums’ constant worries of ensuring their child is getting the right nutrition for his growth with my personal experience of overcoming my little one’s picky-eating habits when I first started solids food on him. I am glad to be able to share my advices and suggestions with other mums who faced the same issue as I did, helping them plan well-balanced and nutritious diets for their little ones, which at times require some creativity to keep them interested in their meals.
- Encourage kids to eat variety of brightly colored foods and cut foods into interesting shapes such as star-shaped carrots to attract his attention.
- Serve nutrient-rich foods so that every single mouthful packs a load of nutrients for your child.
- Encourage self-feeding and exploration of food from early age with supervision. Don’t worry about the mess.
