For parents, the health of their children is the most important thing. 

However, when it comes to raising children, many novice parents have certain misunderstandings, especially when it comes to eating. When they see their babies grow teeth, they think they can eat adult food, even It is also believed that this can enhance the baby’s chewing ability. As everyone knows, this behavior has caused harm to the baby’s growth and development. 

Case: A 10-month-old baby eats adult food, and her mother-in-law and daughter-in-law are arguing about it.

Xiao Lin’s baby is 10 months old, and he is white and fat, which is very cute. 

But due to work reasons, the responsibility of taking care of the baby fell on the mother-in-law. Seeing the lovely grandson, the old man also loved it. 

Some time ago, when Xiaolin came home from get off work, he found that her mother-in-law was feeding the baby the adult’s meals. Xiaolin stopped it at that time, saying that the baby was still young and could not take too much salt, while the adult meals contained more salt, and eating it to a baby under one year old would have an impact on the child’s health. 

All the pictures in this article are from the Internet, and the pictures and texts are irrelevant.

But Xiaolin’s mother-in-law said it’s okay. The children’s parents also ate like this when they were young, and there was nothing wrong with each other. Words, the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law are arguing about it. 

So, how old can a baby eat adult food? 

As the month age changes, what changes do babies eat? 

Baby’s food has also changed with the age of months. For the baby’s health, parents should feed different foods at different ages. 

Before 6 months, it is best for your baby to be breast-feeding as the mainstay, supplemented by formula milk. 

At about 6 months, the baby can eat some mushy or puree foods. The first supplementary food recommended is rice noodles. 

7-8 months old, you can give your baby some soft and rotten porridge or noodles. You can add some vegetable shreds to the porridge and noodles. When adding vegetable shreds at the beginning, there may be some vegetable residue in the baby’s stool, but as long as there is no indigestion such as diarrhea, parents do not need to worry too much. 

The 8-9 months old baby is already teething at this time. You can give your baby some harder foods, such as molar biscuits, which can not only improve the baby’s chewing ability, but also relieve the teething Period of discomfort; and this month-old baby, you can start adding meat, making minced meat for the baby to eat. 

When you are about 1 year old, you can chop up non-staple foods such as vegetables and meat and feed them to your baby. 

Therefore, when the baby is about 1 year old, you can choose to eat “adult meal”. Many of the foods that adults eat can be given to the baby, but excessively oily and salty meals should be avoided, and the diet should be as light as possible . 

What are the possible consequences if the baby eats adult food too early? 

• Unbalanced nutritional intake affects baby’s growth and development

Infants and young children in the growth and development stage have relatively high requirements for various nutritional elements, while adults eat The ratio of calories, protein, fat, and various vitamins in the food may not meet the nutritional needs of children. 

Not only that, but if a baby under 1 year old eats adult food for a long time, it is easy to affect the growth and development of the child. Therefore, if you want to ensure the health of the child, parents should pay more attention to the baby. Make supplementary food alone. 

• Increase gastrointestinal burden and affect digestion and absorption.

In the process of growing up, a period of time before weaning requires supplementary food, and the supplementary food prepared by parents for the baby will generally be very soft and rotten. Conducive to baby’s digestion and absorption. 

However, adult meals pay more attention to taste rather than nutrition, and will not be so soft and rotten. Compared with baby’s complementary food, it is too rough. Long-term use for children will increase the baby’s intestines and stomach. The burden affects digestion and absorption, making the baby’s nutritional supply deficient, and even malnutrition. 

• It’s not conducive for babies to develop healthy eating habits.

Adults’ food often adds more flavorings. Long-term food for babies will make it easy for babies to develop salty or sweet habits, which may increase Risk of cardiovascular, hypertension, and diabetes in the future. 

Furthermore, when a child is young, the sense of taste will be more sensitive. The over-heavy taste will make the baby develop a picky and partial eclipse habit, leading to an imbalance in the baby’s diet, so natural and light food is the real baby. Delicious cuisine. 

• Low safety

Before the baby is 1 year old, although the baby has begun to grow teeth, but the tooth development is not perfect, he can only eat soft and rotten food supplements, and the rough meals of adults cannot be chewed normally. Either long-term and high-frequency chewing is required, or it is swallowed directly. The former will damage the baby’s teeth, while the latter will not be fully digested and decomposed, which will increase the burden on the baby’s stomach. If the chewing is not in place, the food will easily get stuck. In the baby’s throat, severe cases can even cause the baby to suffocate.  The baby’s development pattern within one year old, if you The baby’s full compliance indicates that his body and brain are well developed

Current Situation

Parents now know more about various ways of parenting knowledge. The more they understand, the easier it is to worry about some small details. 

“Why can someone else’s baby turn over at the age of four, but my baby can’t. Is it abnormal?” “The baby is one year old and can only barely stand up. Does this situation require treatment? ”

In life, mothers have similar problems endlessly . Because other people’s children develop ahead of their own children, they will doubt whether there is a problem with their own children. In fact, as long as the baby is within the general development range, it is normal, and there is no need to worry about it. 

The following is a list of research reports from pediatric experts on the laws of tooth development, language development, exercise and other aspects of your baby within one year of age. If all of your children meet the standards, it means that he has a good body and a brain. Well developed.

Twelve months: During this period, some simple building block games children can already play independently, and they can also get the items they need. 

It should be noted that the development of a child’s movement is closely related to the degree of the central nervous system. 

Because in the process of exercise, it is not only necessary to mobilize the body’s muscles and joints, but also to coordinate and cooperate with the limbs. These are all instructions for the development of the brain’s central nervous system. 

Therefore, if your child has good motor cells, all of the above indicators will pass. In addition to showing that the body is good, it also reflects that his brain is well developed.
