What Can Baby’s Eat On Thanksgiving?
Depending how old your baby is it will vary on what they can and cannot eat.
For example: Turkey, Chicken any meat really that requires chewing is asked to be served to baby’s 8 -10 months or older.
But items like: mashed potatoes, sweet pies, and little tasting of finger foods may be given to children 6 months or older.
I went around and I gathered the best first Thanksgiving foods for your baby to serve this holiday.
