Gluten Free Finger Foods for Baby
My husband, Dr. Nielsen, informed me that the latest research has actually shown that if you keep your child off of the most common food sensitivities (gluten, dairy, soy, peanuts, etc.) for the first 2 years, that your child will be less likely to have food sensitivities as an adolescent and even as an adult.
There are a variety of foods that your baby can try out instead of wheat-based products!
Here is a great list, many of which I have fed to my own children.
*Remember, start with small, very soft pieces of food first and always supervise your child while eating! Some foods on this list may require teeth or even chewing skills so use discretion before feeding it to your child.
(Also, don't worry if your child has trouble picking up small pieces of food at first, it's great for developing their fine motor skills!)
