Babies Are Now Being Weaned Onto Rice Cakes And Mango Instead Of Porridge And Rusks

March 2, 2017 | by | 0 Comments
Today’s children are being weaned onto rice cakes, mango and even avocado instead of the more traditional toast, porridge and rusks, a study has found.  See SWNS story SWBABY.  Eight out of ten parents believe the diets of babies and toddlers have changed over the years with more exotic fruit and vegetables more likely to be used to wean children nowadays.  Eighteen per cent more children are given rice cakes as first finger foods today than 20 years ago, while 17 per cent more are fed avocado – compared to just two per cent in previous generations.  The number of children being fed sweet potato as a first food has risen by 22 per cent, while the introduction of pears has increased by 11 per cent.  Wafers, kiwi fruit and courgettes have also seen an increase in popularity in recent years.  In contrast, rusks have suffered the biggest decline of all foods – with 32 per cent LESS children eating them now compared to 20 years ago.  And 72 per cent of parents believe giving your child varied foods can have an effect on how adventurous they are with foods as they get older.
