As your baby grows, he or she will begin to need more nutrients and vitamins than they can get from breastmilk or formula. To keep their appetites satisfied, many pediatricians may recommend introducing baby food cereal around six months of age. The timing may vary depending on your child and how fast they grow — ultimately, it's a decision you and your child's doctor can make at the right time.
Baby food cereals are formulated with a variety of grains, including rice, wheat and oats. Sometimes they may also be supplemented with small bits of fruits and vegetables, including pumpkin, apples or bananas. Older babies who are around 1 year old may enjoy a cereal that's slightly textured and requires them to chew, such as choices offered by Gerber. Baby food cereals contain essential vitamins and nutrients growing children need, including iron and zinc.
Baby food jars, often consisting of pureed food, such as strained vegetables, rice and chicken or sweet potatoes, green beans and carrots, are convenient because you can feed your baby right out of the container. Baby food jars from brands such as Heinz are offered in various stages — beginner foods are usually for babies just beginning to eat solid foods, while junior or toddler versions may have chunks of food for more texture. Organic options are available in this category as well from Earth's Best.
Often containing fruit and vegetable purees, baby food pouches from brands such as Parent's Choice can offer a convenient packaging format that allows your young toddler to feed themselves by squeezing. The caps to these pouches can also be reattached, so you can save part of its contents for a second feeding later. Pouches are offered at Walmart Canada at affordable prices for busy parents.
For times in between meals when young toddlers may be hungry, Walmart Canada offers plenty of snack choices to satisfy their appetites. Gerber's Lil' Crunchies, for instance, have a mild cheese flavor that toddlers can enjoy, and it allows them to practice chewing and swallowing actions. MUM-MUM offers a variety of organic toddler rice snacks in biscuits and rusk forms in appealing flavors, such as apple, strawberry and banana.
Walmart Canada carries a variety of baby food jars, pouches, snacks and cereals for your growing children, no matter how old they are. Parents can find these items at affordable prices at Walmart Canada, so they can stock up on what they need for the next few weeks or months.
Whether you're shopping for baby food jars, snacks or pouches, Walmart Canada carries plenty of choices to help satisfy your young baby or toddler's ever-growing appetite so they can stay well-fed, healthy and happy.
