NESTLÉ® DEVELOPMENTAL NUTRITION PLAN (NDNP)™
Wondering which foods your child can enjoy at each stage of her development?
The NESTLÉ® DEVELOPMENTAL NUTRITION PLAN (NDNP)™ shows step by step, which new tastes and textures you can introduce as your child grows older.
The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding during your child’s first 6 months and continued breastfeeding for as long as possible. As babies grow at different paces, health professionals should advise you on the appropriate time to start on complementary foods.
Stage 1: Gentle first food
It’s time to introduce cereals into your child's menu.
> Stage 1
Stage 2: New tastes
It’s time to try some new tastes… like different kinds of puréed foods and infant cereals (with fruits and vegetables). Your child can now swallow something more solid. Her digestive system has developed, her stomach is growing larger and her system less fragile. At 6 months, your child is beginning to push forward, hold toys firmly and look for them when they’re misplaced.
> Stage 2
Stage 3: Richer tastes and textures
Your child can’t get enough variety of flavours? Then she is moving in the right direction – both physically and nutritionally. Now that she can consume meat and fish, it's time to introduce her to a few new tastes.
> Stage 3
Stage 4: Ready to try more!
Your child is ready for more. More tastes, more variety more recipes! Now it’s time to try some fruits, beans and salads, and soon, your child’s first birthday cake. Your little one is climbing the nutritional ladder. What incredible progress!
