Welcome to the wonderful world of baby food! Babies have a number of important milestones in their first year. Smiling, giggling, sitting up, crawling, walking, and taking that first mouthful of solid food are achievements that contribute to your baby's growing independence. New parents are especially infatuated with their baby's first foods because, after all, eating is fun! We love to eat, and so do our children. Creating meals that both nourish and please is highly satisfying for all involved.
