18 Months Baby Food Chart And A Golden Recipe

Having a 1.5-year-old child is no joke! At this point, you have made it through 18 months of a whirlwind experience. From bringing the baby into the house, going through the anxiety-ridden first night to learning how to understand and communicate with your child, we’re sure these past months have been a journey of a lifetime. We imagine that with so much going on, 18 months probably flew by!

What is your 18 months baby upto?

The fun and frolic are now about to take a new turn as at this age, little ones start to show their childlike tendencies and can get up to all sorts of naughtiness. Our babies are keen to explore the world around them and are going to be romping all over the house, continuing to keep us parents on our toes through our waking hours. This naughtiness and exploration, however, is one of the most endearing things to behold, and seeing our little ones grow in front of our eyes is one of the most fulfilling things a parent shall probably experience. In fact, all this naughtiness makes us gush over them even more!

This also means that we now have to be extra vigilant with regard to the health and immunity of our child. Health, immunity, and nutrition should be prioritized from day one. Here's an immunity-boosting recipe to help your little one give that extra boost of immunity.

How to build strong immunity:

The environments our children interact with are full of germs, microorganisms, and bacteria that can make them sick. The only to make all this an enjoyable process is ensuring that the immunity of our babies is strong, allowing their babies to fight and protect against any harmful substance in the environment around them.

Organic ingredients, quick recipes:

The key to this is using simple and organic ingredients. The more complicated a food item is, the higher the chance of it being unhealthy. The labels of any food given to your child should be simple and easy to understand; scientific names have no business going inside our children’s tummies! Simple ingredients pack the highest nutrition and are often the easiest to use for quick and convenient recipes.

Why oats?

Oats recipes are a great example of this. Oats are a great source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals and are a really versatile ingredient you can experiment within the kitchen. A particularly useful oats recipe is the overnight oats jar. Made with organic oats, chia, and nuts, this is a highly nutritious breakfast for your little one that just takes 5 minutes of preparation the night before! Letting this rest over the night turns it into a delicious morning breakfast that is hassle-free and ready to eat. Chia seeds are high in protein, fiber, and antioxidants while nuts are great for protein and healthy fats.

Organizing all this into a baby food chart is the simplest way to make sure it all gets done.
