Understanding the Stages of Feeding Development
As your baby grows and develops, nutritional requirements change and so do preferences for a variety of tastes and textures. At around six months, it is best to start with single ingredient foods and simple textures. As your baby matures, the introduction of more complex tastes and textures, as well as combinations of ingredients, supports your baby’s physical development and adds variety to their diet.
The Heinz Staging System
With over 150 varieties, including 39 Organic, Heinz offers a complete line of products to support your baby’s nutritional needs, starting at around six months with first solid baby foods, to 12+ months with toddler foods and snacks and Little Kids™ cereals and snacks for 1-4 years.
Colour coded and clearly labeled, the Heinz Staging System has been developed so that our products match your baby’s changing taste and texture preferences with the proper nutrition required for growth and development. As your baby moves through the Heinz Staging System, continue to serve foods from each previous stage for a varied and balanced diet. The following pages provide more information about each of these four stages.
