After receiving a number of requests for our Let your baby guide you infant feeding resources to be translated into other languages, we’re excited to announce that they are now available to order in Te Reo, Mandarin, Urdu, Punjabi, Hindi and Korean as well as English. These include a fold-up parent guide and set of two fridge magnets which provide information on what, when and how to introduce solid foods to babies around six months of age.These guidelines provide information about what, when and how to introduce solid foods at around six months of age.

These are designed to help parents and caregivers recognise the signs of infant readiness to start solid foods and the signs of infants' feeling full. There is evidence that preserving infants’ natural ability to self-regulate how much food they need can help children grow up to be a healthy weight in adulthood.
