STILL DISCOVERING YOUR CHILD’S FOOD HABITS?
TRY THE 3-DAY RULE.

If you’re introducing new food into your baby’s food, try the 3-day rule: only one new food every three days to check for any allergic reactions.

It’s advisable to consult with your child’s paediatrician before starting them on solids. Do discuss the possibilities of allergies as well.
