1. How do I know if my child is eating enough?

It is normal for your baby's appetite to be changeable and for food intake to be different from one child to the next.
Should you have any concerns, contact your family physician or your pediatrician who can discuss them with you while taking into account the health and development of your child.

2. How long can I keep a thawed container of food in the refrigerator?

By making sure that you have properly sealed the container or have put the food in a airproof container, you can store the food for a maximum of 48 hours in the refrigerator.
Please take note that your baby's saliva which is transferred from the spoon to the food container, can alter the product. It is therefore highly recommended that you take out only the quantity required and that you transfer it to another container if you wish to store the unused portion until a later date.

3. In which order should I introduce solid foods?

In accordance with the National Public Health Institute of Quebec, you should generally start with baby cereal.
Vegetables and fruit come second : vegetables are normally offered before fruits.
Then, foods rich in protein such as meat, cheese, yoghurt, yolks are the last to be offered to your child so as not to overburden the kidneys.
It is important to offer your child one new food at a time and to ensure that he or she is tolerating it well by continuing to offer this new food for a period of three to seven consecutive days. This way, you can detect the possibility of a food allergy developing, if applicable.
