Weaning food introduction schedule for babies older than six months

This basic supplementary-food introduction schedule is for healthy children. It suggests a timeline for introducing different solids to your young baby. It is not a rigid schedule, try to be flexible. This supplementary-food introduction schedule is calm, perfectly breast-feeding-friendly and absolutely allergy-friendly.

Extra information about this schedule can be obtained from Eten voor de kleintjes - Kleintjes van 0-4 leren zelf eten by Stefan Kleintjes, nutritionist & lactation consultant IBCLC who developed this schedule.
