Infant care in Cypress, Texas: Healthy food for your infant’s development

Posted on 08-25-2014


Providing your infant with a healthy, balanced diet is one of your most important tasks. Ensuring that your child’s diet consists of all the nutrients and vitamins he needs is crucial in terms of his or her brain and body development. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Fairfield in Cypress has years of experience with infant care. Here we list some of the healthy foods you should provide your infant.

Breast milk

Most moms should be breastfeeding, if possible. Breast milk contains around 380 different nutrients which are absent from most commercial formulas. These nutrients help your infant build resistance to viruses and diseases that are common in babies including stomach viruses, meningitis and intestinal issues. Also, studies have shown that infants who are breastfed are less likely to develop allergies later in life.

Baby foods and cereals

When your infant reaches the age of about six months, you can start to supplement his or her daily breast milk feedings with baby foods and cereals. There are a number of good choices that contain the vital nutrients and vitamins which are essential for healthy body and brain development. These foods are available in a wide range of flavors.

Mashed, chopped and finger foods

By the time your baby reaches the age of about nine or ten months, he or she should be eating about three meals per day. You can start to introduce foods such as meat, poultry, rice, potatoes, vegetables, breads and pasta into your baby’s diet. Always remember to cut food into very small pieces to avoid the risk of choking and to aid in digestion.
