Baby Food Ideas (NOT Baby Led Weaning) - GAPS

If I was not going to do Baby-led weaning, then I think I would introduce foods in the order recommended by the GAPS book (as an aside, here is another article in support of Baby-Led Weaning).

If you aren't familiar with GAPS, it is a way of eating which is meant to heal your gut and strengthen your entire system.  It is fairly revolutionary and the book itself is full of information and knowledge far beyond the scope of any other nutrition or diet book I have seen.

She recommends:

  1. Broth
  2. Fresh juice - carrot/ warm water - cabbage, celery, lettuce
  3. Add probiotic to stock (if whey is ok, add yogurt)
  4. Vegetable soup or puree - carrot, zucchini, squash, leek, onion, garlic, broccoli, cauliflower - broth + fat + vegetable + yogurt or whey
  5. Boiled meats (+ skin + liver) - include fish and fish skin
  6. Avocado
  7. Egg yolk
  8. Cooked apple with fat
  9. Nut butter pancakes (squash and eggs fried in coconut oil or butter)
  10. Raw vegetables- lettuce, cucumber, carrot, celery, cabbage
  11. Scrambled egg
  12. Raw apple, ripe banana
  13. Almond bread
  14. Salt
She also says to use a spoon and give baby a spoon-- good advice all around!
