Video transcript for help your baby enjoy food

[Music throughout video]

Voice

Help your baby learn about food by letting them play with it. Encourage their independence. Give your baby their own spoon to hold when they can.

[Sound of baby banging spoon on high chair tray]

Voice

If they want to put their hand into the food and then up to their mouth, don't worry! This is all part of the learning process but be prepared for mess!

Mum

Do you think Luca's having fun with his bowl?

[Meal time muffled conversation]

Mum

You guys used to be that messy when you ate.

Voice

Babies like to pick up food from their parents' plates. It's OK to let them. A good tip is to spread a shower curtain or newspaper under your baby's high chair or to put the high chair in the kitchen. That way it's easier to clear up the mess.
