Stage 2 Baby Food Recipes for #thewin

Because starting now almost all foods are on the table! They might end up on the floor, but we can at least start them on the table;). 

With the exception of honey, processed foods and sugar, baby can now eat any whole foods and spices that is out there. Don’t let confusing charts like these scare you, as long as the ingredient list of a food is only at 1-ingredient, then it is good for baby to eat.

Curry, kale, mangos, raspberries, beef, vanilla beans, asparagus, tandoori and even salmon are for the taking (or eating in this case).

I mean it when I say, no real foods are off the table for baby.

So it’s time to tempt baby’s taste buds and start developing their palettes to love foods that are fresh, colorful and full of good-for-you nutrients.

PRO TIP: the more real food you feed your baby the more they will grow up loving it as a toddler, kid and even adult.

So let’s make baby some delicious food they will never forget!


All purees below are perfectly safe to introduce to baby after stage one purees or roughly between 6-8 months of age depending on your baby.
