Introducing family foods (6 months+)

When your baby is around six months old you can start to introduce family foods.

If you would like to attend a face-to-face or a virtual 'Introducing family foods workshop', please speak to your Health Visiting team or contact the Surrey-wide 0-19 Advice Line on 01883 340 922.

Introducing family foods is a really important step in your baby’s development and it can be great fun to explore new flavours and textures together.

Visit the NHS Start4Life website to watch a useful video guide on starting your baby on solid and family foods.
