Foods to avoid giving to your baby.

Keeping track of all the things new parents should do regarding their baby's diet can be very difficult. The easy way to do this is to focus on what not to feed babies. Pay attention to this. Here is a simple list of foods that you should never give to your babies under 12 months of age.

Foods to avoid giving to your baby.
  1. Honey should not be given to babies under the age of 12 months as it is high in normal sugars and potentially bacterial particles.
  2. Caffeinated beverages, for example, tea, coffee, and cola are harmful to the health of babies because they have drying properties of bodily fluid stores, thereby reducing iron absorption.
  3. Small, strict foods should not be given to babies eg: walnuts, various seeds, popcorn, whole grapes, and whole legumes as they can get stuck in babies' throats.
  4. Substances such as walnuts should not be given to infants because of the risk of inhalation and possible allergic reactions. Walnut paste or walnut butter are better forms of giving walnuts. These can be given safely; However, do not give peanuts in the first year and for the first three years if there is a history of family allergies.
  5. Spinach, which contains oxalic acid, can be problematic if given before the end of one year.
  6. Grain seed products are not suitable for babies because of the seeds, although you can give light, milled flour bread.
  7. Soy, cow's milk, goat's milk, almond milk, or barley milk are not suitable formula options, although they can be given in small amounts in cooking from ten months onwards. Various fluids can be given as drinks after the first year.
  8. Low fat and reduced-fat products are not suitable for children under two years of age as they do not provide enough strength to growing children.
  9. Sugar and salt should not be mixed in children's food; This includes Grain Seed Snacks, Khichdi, and Scorched Products. Read the label to check for these additives.
  10. It is advisable not to give fruit juices (unless very diluted) as they can cause tooth decay and diarrhea (especially apple juice).
  11. Soft drinks and fizzy drinks are high in sugar and some of them contain artificial sweeteners; Neither of these will bring any nutritional benefit to your baby.
