The Real Superfoods for Bubs

We often hear about the new superfood we need to be eating — whether it’s kale, avocado or even chia. Less often do we hear about the familiar daily foods that have plenty of super properties. These foods are especially super for our developing bubs once they reach six months of age, and are easily incorporated into everyday meals.

Below are my top superfoods for babies to ensure their nutrition is taken care of.

Oats

Oats are a natural and low GI wholegrain — and, one of the best cereal options for bubs once they reach six months and older. Oats are a natural source of iron, high in dietary fibre and a great source of essential nutrients including the B-group vitamins, zinc, chromium and magnesium. A daily serve of oats once your bub starts solids is a great way to keep their digestive system functioning optimally. I still serve my twins Bellamy’s Organic Baby Porridge which keep their tummies healthy, and which they love!

Salmon

Few foods come close to salmon in terms of Omega-3 content. A high Omega-3 intake is linked to improved cognitive development in childhood, and it is a challenge to get enough Omega-3’s without consuming oily fish regularly. Mashed salmon and vegetables is a nutritious meal for small children and is great to introduce by seven or eight-months.

Plain yoghurt

Not many yoghurts on the market are suitable for small babies as they often contain added sugar, or with Greek yoghurts, are too high in protein for infants. There are a few brands that only contain milk and probiotics. These yoghurts are a great dietary addition for optimal gut health and can be added to baby cereal or eaten as a snack with fresh fruit for a daily dose of probiotics.

Eggs

While eggs are not often introduced into the diet of babies until they are eight or nine-months-old, they are a very nutritious food for small children. A single egg contains more than 20 essential vitamins and minerals including Vitamin A, essential fats and protein. You can incorporate eggs into recipes like Egg & Avocado Dippers, Veggie Patties, Baked Eggs, Mini Egg Bites and Omelettes.

Lean red meat

A small 20-30g serve of lean red meat (eaten a few times each week) will give a small baby all the iron they need for brain development. Iron is one of the key nutrients babies need once they reach six months — and, as breast milk is especially low in iron, it is crucial that infants have access to well absorbed forms of iron in their diet regularly. Cheesy Cutlets, Kid’s Bolognese and Beef Stew are all infant-friendly meal options that offer plenty of well absorbed iron.

Oats are a natural and low GI wholegrain — and, one of the best cereal options for bubs once they reach six months and older. Oats are a natural source of iron, high in dietary fibre and a great source of essential nutrients including the B-group vitamins, zinc, chromium and magnesium. A daily serve of oats once your bub starts solids is a great way to keep their digestive system functioning optimally. I still serve my twins Bellamy’s Organic Baby Porridge which keep their tummies healthy, and which they love!

Important Notice to Parents and Guardians

  • The World Health Organisation recommends that breastfeeding is best for your baby.
  • Having a balanced diet when breastfeeding is also important. Infant Formulas should only be used after you’ve sought advice from a doctor or health practitioner.
  • A decision not to breastfeed can be difficult to reverse and introducing partial bottle feeding may reduce the supply of breast milk. It is also wise to consider the cost of infant formula.
  • If you use infant formula, all preparation and feeding instructions must be followed as per the manufacturer’s instructions. This is important for your baby’s health.
