[MUSIC] 7 Foods to Feed Baby Before Age 1. The more fruits and veggies a baby eats by age one… the more produce she’ll consume by age six! Strawberries. Blend ’em up. The bright colors will get baby’s attention. Peaches. Puree them. Loaded with potassium. Baby will love the sweet flavor and soothing texture. Kale (not just for hipster babies). Steam it, then puree. Blend in banana for sweetness. Lentils. As easy as pasta. Packed with protein and iron. Texture is similar to cooked peas. Salmon. Older babies love this finger food.
