Gadi's 100+ Foods Before One Year Old

Baby-led Weaning Philippines

We've reached another milestone in our Baby-Led Journey! In 2 months journey, we've reached the 100+ Foods Before One Year Old! We've made it! 

We started solid foods with baby-led weaning when Gadi was 7 months old. We waited for all the signs of readiness to be met before diving in. He is now at 9 months old and has eaten over 100 different foods. Wahay! These include fruits and veggies, grains, dairy, and proteins.

According to, here are the signs that your baby is ready:
  • sits up with no support
  • reaches for objects and brings them to her mouth
  • interested in your food and tries to make a grab for it
  • makes chewing movements

Eating a wide variety of healthy foods is a great way to ensure that your child is getting the maximum nutrition and expanding their palette in the process.

So, here's the list of different foods that our #LittlestManGadi tasted:
