Spark little one’s love of food with The Organix A-Z of Great Food

Organix a-z food weaning

From baby led to puree led weaning, we have been loving using The Organix A-Z of Great Food to ensure our little ones are exposed to a variety of food, flavours and textures. This A-Z is a list of 26 foods and flavours, developed by Organix and nutritionists, to provide parents and carers, who are on the weaning journey with their tots, access to a host of healthy food options.

By ensuring our tots are offered new tastes each week we are paving the way to encourage more healthy eaters and support them in learning to love great food.

Organix has also created a fab wall chart that is creative and colourful showing off their alphabet of food, helping us also introduce our tots to letters, too! We’ve been enjoying making things like smiley faces – with eggs for eyes and raspberries for the mouth.

For those days when you need a little inspiration, we have found it super helpful using Organix’s handy online recipes too! Taking the stress out of those early days of weaning, we have ready-to-use meal ideas for each new day. We’ve already made from the range, Avocado scrambled eggs, apple rice cake doggies and baby salmon fishcakes. All a big hit with our kiddies!

Other than being a whole lot of fun, the A-Z of Great Food is also super reassuring to us as parents. Each of the 26 foods have been hand-picked by Organix Nnutritionists, meaning we know we’re giving a healthy selection to our littles, adding a bit more reassurance that we’re doing the right thing to support little tummies.

Just like Organix, we too love teaming up our creative meals with bamboo bamboo plates.

Variety is key early on

According to research by Organix and undertaken by YouGov, half of UK parents (49%) admit that their children don’t eat as wide a variety of fruits and vegetables as they would like, with 48% saying their child consumed six or fewer varieties in the past week.

Research shows that babies have a ‘flavour window’ between 6-18 months – meaning little ones are most open to accepting new tastes during this time. After this window, it can become more difficult to introduce new foods, with 41% of parents saying the look or texture of something new can put their children off.

Organix and the team of nutritionists looked at 19 different variables when selecting foods for each letter. The final 26 to make the list cover an array of foods, flavours and nutrients, to ensure that families have access to a list ready to introduce the healthiest, most varied foods to babies from 6 months old.

This helpful tool takes the form of an easy to follow, colourful image-led wall chart that parents & carers can download from the A-Z hub on the Organix website. It is designed to give parents guidance on new, healthy foods to try and master with their children, following each letter of the alphabet. The A-Z includes 26 flavours and textures - everything from favourite fruits to some of the more challenging veggies that little ones sometimes struggle to get to grips with.  [5]

Organix have made their A-Z of Great Foods a super fun way to introduce a wider range of flavours and textures to little ones. Organix found that 54% of parents struggled to think of new ideas and tactics to get their little ones trying new foods. 39% said easy tips and guidance on fun ways to engage children with fresh foods from experts would be a great support, so the Organix A-Z will be a great help to many.
