Q - I read that yellowy / orange foods were good for my baby's stomach. Is that true, and if so why?
A - There is a common misconception that yellowy/orange foods are easier to digest for babies. Most of these foods are used for stage one weaning because they will blend down to a smooth puree but all foods identified for stage one weaning are fine.
There is no scientific proof that they are easier to digest and if we look at baby led weaning, the child starts off with finger foods straight away at six months.
