hi there :)


is there a website or some guideleines about the amount of nutrients that babies should be getting? (mine are 9 mos now)

there is so much about they should be getting enough iron, protein, calcium, portions of fruit snd veg etc etc etc that i feel my two would need to eat a mountain to get the right anmount of nutrients!!!!!

sometimes mine dont eat a thing and i am giving them abidec daily but that obviously does not have iron calcium etc tc

it would be nice to be able to refer to something that tells you how much a portion of fruit/veg is for a baby and how much iron they need and where to obtain that amount from etc etc most of the info starts from he age of one year!!

i hope i am not sounding too stupid as i do roughly know what they need and obviously they need a balanced diet, but it can be frustrating and even a tad worrying when your babies reject cetain foods. i also have one child who has an allergy to milk so that cut out quite a bit, although they are on soya formula for cooking now. :) plus their usual BM

your thoughts would be great , sorry for the length

Hiya hun

From info I have read..its not ideal to give baby's liver until over one (due to its high vit A content). After 1 they can have a 1-2 small spoonfuls once a week.

The infomation does vary..some sites say after 6 mths but its best to act on the safer side.
