Baby led weaning, forbidden foods

Because of the risk they could have for the baby, there are certain foods that are prohibited and should not be offered to the baby in baby-led weaning (BLW). These foods are the following:

  • Whole nuts (can be given crushed), hard foods such as carrot or apple (yes they can be given cooked) and pieces or rounded foods such as grapes, olives or frankfurter sausages (they should be cut lengthwise).
  • Large fish, as well as seafood.
  • Green leafy vegetables such as spinach.
  • Honey.
  • Seaweed.
  • Rice drink.
  • popcorn
  • cow's milk (before the age of 1 year)
  • Game meat.
  • salt
  • sugar

In addition, juices should also be avoided. It is better to opt for fruit pieces, properly prepared.
