Expanding the diet of babies
Before the soup or dessert can replace one dairy meal, some time will pass. However, from 5. month of life, you can tame your baby with new tastes.

The mechanism of eating from a spoon is completely different from sucking - different muscles are involved, the coordination is different. Let's not worry, if we notice, that the soup served on the teaspoon is flowing out of the mouth in a moment. Swallowing food served on a spoon is a difficult art.

It may take several weeks, before your toddler gets used to the new way of eating and learns it fully.

These skills will come in handy in 2. age, when the baby gets, for example,. sandwich. They are also important in developing the speech apparatus. Introducing your toddler to the diet too late, e.g.. soup with noticeable pieces of vegetables is often associated with major problems in teaching a child to eat meals with a consistency other than mush.
