Vegan Baby’s First 100 Foods

When Baby R started eating solids at 6 months, I was eager for her to try as many foods as she could handle. My goal was to make it to 100 foods before she turned 1, mainly because it was something fun to track, but also because studies suggest that eating a variety of foods as well as a plant-based diet helps to establish a healthy gut biome.

Baby-led weaning made it easy for her to try different foods because she ate what we ate. And now that she’s 1, she’s showing greater interest in our food, so she’s trying even more variety every week.

While I know her palette will change as she gets older and she will become pickier, I wanted to introduce her to as many flavors as possible so could have a greater range of flavors to choose from.

If your baby is new to solids, I hope this list inspires you. Share with me your baby’s favorite solids in the comments below!

Please note: we limited our baby’s salt and sugar intake during her first year and will continue to do so through her second. We used sodium free and sugar free alternatives whenever needed.
