Starting Solids

Starting solids? Download our fridge chart for your step-by-step guide to what foods to introduce when and what to do with milk feeds, created by Organic Bubs nutritionist, Leanne Cooper.
Health authorities have recently changed their recommendation on exclusive breastfeeding (or infant formula) until about 4 months.

STAGE 1: First foods should be introduced between 4-6 months and consist of silky smooth purees which can be easily digested:
  • Iron-enriched organic baby cereals (e.g. rice, millet)
  • Organic vegetables (e.g. pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot)
  • Organic fruit (e.g. pear, apple, mango, avocado)
Organic Bubs Stage 1 pouches for bubs 4m+ consist of simple ingredients with subtle flavours and silky textures, specifically tailored towards babies starting out on solids.

STAGE 2: From around 6-7 months babies will be ready to experiment with an increased variety of foods and textures:
  • Broader range of organic fruit, vegetables & herbs
  • Legumes, pasta, rice, pulses & other grains (preferably gluten-free whole grains, such as quinoa.
  • Cheese, natural whole milk yoghurt & egg yolks
Organic Bubs Stage 2 pouches combine an adventurous range of fruits, vegetables and nutritious gluten-free super grains, which we consider to be the building blocks of good nutrition.

STAGE 3: From around 7-8 months you can start to introduce a wide variety of foods that provide iron and essential fatty acids. Explore with new textures by mashing, grating and chopping:
  • Organic meat, chicken & fish
  • Pulses & grains
  • Whole hard boiled egg
  • Goat or Cow’s milk (in cooking only, continue to use breast milk & formula as main drink) 
  • Soft finger foods
Organic Bubs Stage 3 pouches with lumps & bumps contain Australian organic free-range chicken and exotic recipes to educate developing taste buds.
