What should I feed my baby first? What nutrients should my child get from food?

Babies in the earliest months of eating solid foods are still getting their main calories and nutrition from breast milk or formula. The most important thing is for your baby to establish healthy eating habits and positive food associations. Introduce your baby to a variety of ingredients and you will deliver a variety of nutrients the way nature intended! For more information, check out the Woodland Wonders Guide to Starting Solids. You should make all decisions about your child’s diet under the guidance of your child’s pediatrician or nutritionist.

What about protein? When should I start feeding protein-rich foods like meats?

Most babies before the age of 8 months have no additional dietary need for protein beyond what they are receiving from breast milk or formula. From about 8 months, meats and other sources of protein, such as vegetables, will become more important parts of your child’s diet. You should make all decisions about your child’s diet under the guidance of your child’s pediatrician or nutritionist.

What about fat? Is fat an important part of my baby's diet?

Babies need fat for growth, for brain development, and to help absorb fat-soluble vitamins, as well as other functions in the body. If you take all the water out of breast milk, half of what’s left behind is fat.

Babies are growing at a rapid rate and fat provides the much-needed concentrated calories to support and fuel this growth. Fat contains more calories per gram than carbohydrates or protein, which is important for babies who have smaller digestive systems and need more calories in a smaller amount of food.

Fat is also an important part of brain and nervous system development, as about two-thirds of the brain is made up of fat. Fat is a vital part of cell membranes and also insulates the nerve fibers in the brain.

You should make all decisions about your child’s diet under the guidance of your child’s pediatrician or nutritionist.

What about calories? How many calories should my baby be getting?

As long as the calories you are providing are primarily from breast milk or formula and high quality calorie dense foods, and not from juice or sugary empty calories, your child will likely stop eating when full and regulate his or her own caloric intake.

If you have some concerns of either too many or too few calories, take an accurate account of your child’s food intake, and bring this information with you to discuss with your doctor. The doctor will monitor your child’s development and make recommendations based on individual growth and weight.

Are your foods allergen free?

All of our products are free of wheat, gluten and dairy ingredients and our facility has high standards to avoid cross-contamination, but we always recommend you check with your pediatrician for specific recommendations.

Does Woodland Wonders packaging contain BPAs (Bisphenol A)?

We are proud to say our packaging is 100% BPA-Free. BPA (Bisphenol A) is an industrial chemical used to make polycarbonate plastic resins, epoxy resins and other products.

What is the shelf life for Woodland Wonders products?

We want to provide the best tasting products for our consumers. Therefore, each Woodland Wonders product has a “best fore” date printed on the package. All our porridges are manufactured 15 months before the “best before” date.

How long are Woodland Wonders products good for after opening?

We recommend that you consume within 6 weeks.

What about quantity? How do I know how much to feed my baby at mealtimes?

When you begin, you are introducing your baby to the idea of eating something other than breast milk or formula, more than supplementing your baby’s diet. For that reason, it is not necessary at first for your baby to eat a certain amount. Your child should show readiness signs that they are ready to begin solids (discuss these with your pediatrician), and one of those signs is the ability to turn their head. This ability enables your child to signal you by turning away from the spoon.

Babies differ so much in their preferences and their readiness for solids that it’s difficult to make hard and fast rules about the consistency, amount, and type of solid foods to offer. You and your pediatrician should discuss your individual child’s needs as they grow and develop.

How long are Woodland Wonders products good for after opening?

We recommend that you consume within 6 weeks.

What about storage? Where should I keep unopened pouches?

Unopened pouches should be kept at room temperature, like in your cupboard or pantry. We don’t recommend exposure to freezing or excess heat. Freezing is unnecessary and is not recommended because it can cause changes in texture, or separation. Refrigeration is not necessary unless the pouch has been opened and then the pouch should be consumed within 6 weeks.
