Public Health England (PHE) has launched its first ever Start4Life campaign offering parents advice on introducing solid foods to their baby, during what can be a confusing time.
A brand-new weaning hub has been launched on the Start4Life website. Packed with NHS-approved advice and tips for each weaning stage, plus simple, healthy weaning recipes, it puts everything parents need to know in one place.
Official advice is that most babies should not start solid foods until they are around 6 months old. The last UK Infant Feeding Survey showed that three-quarters of parents had introduced solid foods by the time their baby is 5 months old.
