It’s an exciting time for both mother and child as they discover new tastes and textures (even if half of it does end up on the kitchen floor!). Here are some easy and nutritious ideas for organic foods from Bellamy’s Organic you can introduce from six months.

Rise and shine – it’s breakfast time! When your baby is ready for new flavours, organic apple and cinnamon porridge, cereal with prune and vanilla rice custard are great options for introducing new tastes.
