Everything you need to know about introducing solid food to babies with baby-led weaning or within a transition from spoon feeding to finger foods.

Learn how to safely introduce more than 300 foods to baby. Each food has free detailed nutrition information, choking & allergen guidance, specific instructions on how to cut and serve the food based on baby's age, videos of real babies eating the food, and more.

The Solid Starts app has been devised by a team of doctors, feeding specialists, swallowing specialists, and dieticians. Quickly search for a food (eggs, chicken, strawberries, anything!) and feel confident in exactly how to prepare it for baby.

Want to track foods or access recipes? With a paid subscription, you can record baby's progress with a digital food log, track baby's favourite foods, make a list of foods you'd like to try later, and track any foods baby has had a reaction to which you can share with doctors and caregivers. Subscribers also have access to a searchable database of more than 300 recipes.

This app will be a crucial tool to help you to raise a healthy, happy eater, avoid picky eating, and enjoy family meals!

All parents/caretakers need this app!

As a new mom almost two years ago, I got swept up in researching baby led weaning while pregnant and decided that’s what we were going to do when it was time for my son. Well, by the time my son was 6 months old and ready in February 2020, I got nervous. How do I cut these things for him? Any foods to avoid? Do I have to introduce 1 food at a time for a certain # of days to help show allergies? It doesn’t all have to be mushy/purée food? Even with looking into baby led weaning, I still had so many questions and though I love my pediatrician, they gave such outdated information that I wasn’t sure where to turn! Thankfully I found SolidStarts on Instagram (right when they first started!) and that was the support and guidance I needed this whole time! Save to say, my son will be turning 2 this august and is an AMAZING eater. Every time we go to a family members house, out to eat at a restaurant, or even random social media posts, everyone says how they are amazed with how well he eats and I have to give a big THANK YOU to Jenny and all of the team at Solid Starts because this mama would’ve been so lost and confused without all of their information and support! I highly recommend not only this app but checking out their Instagram page too. So many helpful tips and advice and seeing real babies with how and what they are eating. Thank you again Solid Starts! I’ve got one HAPPY eater!

All mamas need this!

As a first time mama, I had fed my son too many purees at first and when it was time to feed him solid foods, I wouldn’t feed him much of a variety because he would try something and act like he didn’t like it so I would just think to myself, “Okay. He doesn’t like that. I’m not going to serve it again.” This led to him being picky and not really willing to try new foods. I wouldn’t say that he’s extremely picky, but still.. I knew that I wanted to do something completely different the second time around. As a second time mama, I decided to go with baby led weaning. I knew that I was going to do it, even if I didn’t know how. Right as I was having my second child start solids, I found solid starts. And thank goodness because it helped me so much. I was able to serve him a variety of foods, have him eat what we ate by learning how to cut it and just make simple modifications like not adding salt or sugar. It was slow in the beginning, mostly because I was always afraid of him choking. But they teach you the difference between choking and gagging as well. And as he for better at eating I became more confident in what I was doing as well. I owe it all to solid starts. I would recommend this app to any of my mama friends or family. So great to see my son eat 3 meals a day at only 10 months old and my first son willing to try new things as well.

I’ve used Solidstarts Instagram to learn how to cut foods and recipe ideas. However, the FREE app is beyond convenient to search exactly what you’re trying to serve. I’ve used his app for my first child. He’s now 20 months and thriving with food. He eats what we eat and I owe it all to Solidstarts. My daughter is 7 months and we started solids about a month ago. I’ve since forgotten how to serve a lot of foods for her age range. But then I can easily search the app and see how to cut foods, how to prepare, nutrition facts, history of the food etc. and it’s all backed by specialists, doctors and research. There’s also a free recipe included with each food they have in their system. Which is a win-win. You can decide to purchase a subscription to track foods. Their website also provides even MORE searchable data. They have a very advanced search engine which allows you to look up things like “prevent picky eating”, “baby eating fast” etc. and all the articles will populate on that topic. It’s amazing what this company is doing. I recommend this to all of the parents I know. I can’t thank them enough for their hard work and dedication!!
