Salt Baby's kidneys can't cope with salt yet and it is best no to encourage a liking for it. Do not blend adult ready meals for baby. Ready meals contain high levels of salt. Sugar Try sweetening desserts with mashed banana. Artificial sweetener Diet drinks or squashes containing artificial sweeteners are not suitable for babies. They are not nutritious and can encourage a sweet tooth. Fish (Shark, swordfish, tilefish, king mackerel and marlin) They may contain traces of mercury. Tea or Coffee The tannin in tea may prevent baby from absorbing iron in his food properly. Any caffeinated drink is unsuitable for babies. Low-fat food Always offer your baby the full-fat versions. Babies need the calories. Food that will pose as choking hazard: - Whole nuts - Popcorn - Marshmallows - Hard Candies - Grapes - Hard raw veggies - Blueberries Food that may carry a risk of food poisoning: - Soft, mould-ripened cheese such as brie or camembert - Raw or undercooked shellfish - Soft boiled or raw eggs - Liver pate - Shrimp, lobster, crab, scallops If baby has an allergy or an allergic condition such as asthma or eczema, try these food one at time to track reactions: - Grains such as wheat, rye, barley and oats that contain gluten - Fish and shellfish - Citrus fruits - Nut butters - Soya - Cow's milk - Egg
