The tip today might sound natural, but it’s easy to get caught up in your day and forget or to get stuck in your infant routine and not move on with your baby. To reach the ultimate goal of eating with the family, you want to be sure and include your baby at the table with meals. Do this as much as you can early on while they may be playing on a blanket, sitting in an infant seat or bouncy seat, or playing in a highchair.
Once you begin solids and start to lineup mealtimes with the family, be sure to include them with you. This is another reason to teach finger foods. Being exposed the family mealtime will get him interested and give you opportunities to introduce those healthy foods your eating at the table. Of course, there are other social benefits as well, and be sure to keep mealtimes a happy, fun family time.
