For reasons similar to yogurt, cheese is also a good choice due to calcium, fat, and protein content.
Of course, not just any cheese will do at any time for your baby. You need to be selective of the type and texture as well as nutrient content before introducing it to your baby – meaning you don’t want to just reach for the slice of processed cheese or pass out hard cheddar before they have some chompers.
Cottage cheese is a good start. It’s easy to mix with fruit and serve with a spoon or as a finger food if you don’t mind a bit of a mess. From there you can move onto shredded mozzarella and eventually cubed cheese when they have more teeth.
