Last update: 07 September, 2018

Your little one’s diet doesn’t have to be limited to baby food and purees. The following sweet recipes will become delights for both the youngest and oldest of the house.

When we become mothers, we have many questions about how to create the perfect diet for our babies. What can they eat? What is healthy for them? Could they choke? 

Thousands of questions cross our minds. That’s why having the following guide of healthy sweet recipes for babies from 12 to 24 months old will come in handy.

Since babies are so small, we’re constantly afraid that something bad could happen to them. In our attempt to be good mothers, sometimes we are even “too” careful. Keep in mind however, that it’s always good to ask questions.

Doctors can be very helpful in answering any questions you might have. First-time mothers also have the option of asking experienced mothers for advice. Just remember that each baby is different and therefore, may react differently to certain foods.

Don’t worry and keep in mind that when it comes to babies, one of the best ways to incorporate foods into their diet is through trial and error. Nobody can teach you how to be a good mother; you’ll discover how to do it on your own as the weeks, months and years go by.

We all have the same concerns and fears, but only a good mother faces challenges and looks for what is best for her child. You can relax, as you’ll do great and you’ll be proud of yourself.
