Look at that. See he knows!

Plunket clinical advisor

What did Mummy do? You know about food.

Voice

Your baby is learning about food and developing eating habits from the time they start solids.

Plunket clinical advisor

There's Mummy's eating.

Voice

There are lots of things you can do to help your baby learn healthy eating habits right from the start. Set a good example -- your baby learns from watching you.

Plunket clinical advisor

Did you see what she was eating?

[Mealtime conversation]

Voice Eat together as a family whenever you can. It helps to turn off the TV and mobile phone. Try to keep things positive and relaxed around food. Patience works better than pressure.

[Mealtime conversation]
 

Mum

Yeah you had your principal as your teacher today. 

[Mealtime conversation]

Mum

That's pretty exciting.

Give babies time to learn how to eat - it takes a lot of practice.

Plunket clinical advisor

She's saying don't stop. I'll tell you when I want to stop!

Mum

Is that yummy?

Voice

Babies like to explore food. Let them be messy.

Mum

Oh it's about time.

Voice

Take the lead from your baby - they know when they've had enough.

[Baby sounds]

Voice 2

Do you think she's had enough?

Mum

Yeah. She's over it.

Follow a regular meal and snack schedule if you can.

Mum

Oh yucky!
