There is no sincere love than the love of food. - George bernard shaw

Food is not only meant for survival, in fact, but good food also brings eternal bliss. And it becomes, even more, a big responsibility, when it comes to our little one, who has just started experiencing the joy of tasting different foods.


A baby is always very curious about the different flavors and textures of food. He/She wants to experience almost everything which they see. Apart from regular milk and purees which they have been taking, they want to enhance their list of food. They get excited looking at every new food comes to them. It's not necessary that they would love each and every food which is given to them but they always need choices.
