Powdered milk was often given to newborns before 3 months of age. After 6 months, most babies ate beans and rice or whatever the family ate. Adult foods were broken into small bits and fed from the mother's hand. Mothers normally chose suitable food from among what the family was eating. Baby food is any soft easily consumed food other than breastmilk or infant formula that is made specifically for human babies between four and six months and two years old. 

Baby food looks very different in certain parts of the world. Countries like Japan and India have different variations on the traditional porridge. Other countries like France and Kenya like to stick with simple fruits and veggies. Take a look at some foods that "babies eat around the world", below: 

Spanish Babies Eat Paella

A Spanish dish which is full of flavour and also provides you with some fantastic vitamins and minerals. Spanish paella is full of lovely seafood which will give baby lots of nutrients.When mealtime rolls around, Spanish children usually dig in to whatever the adults are eating. While there are some foods that seem to be kid favorites (white rice with tomato sauce, anything with pasta, and croquettes, just to name a few), Spanish kids scarf down meals that would seem downright exotic to most.

Mexican Babies Eat Achiote

Although less likely to be eating non-infant cereals and baby food vegetables, 6- to 11-month-old Hispanics were more likely to be eating fresh fruits, fruit-flavored drinks, baby cookies, and foods such as soups, rice, and beans that are common in many Hispanic cultures. Some of the first foods that Mexican moms feed their babies are soups, fruits (such as papaya), and avocadoes. Older tots chew on soft tortillas too. Some mamas favor sprinkling a touch of chili powder on the foods as a way to get their little picky eaters to try new foods.

Chinese Babies Eat Steamed Fish

China's breastfeeding rates are low for a variety of cultural and societal reasons. Long working hours, short maternity leaves, the prevalence of mothers who migrate from their villages for work and leave infants with their families and scarce nursing facilities. Chinese babies are weaned on congee, a watery rice porridge. Congee is a great base to mix with other foods, such as puréed pulses and vegetables. Chinese mums often include ginger and garlic. Some use soy sauce, although we wouldn't recommend it because it's salty. Steamed, deboned fish is abundant in China, and this healthful protein-packed meat is often prepared in a dish called congee. Congee is the rice cereal of the Asian world; it's a neutral comfort food that can be easily altered with any ingredients you have on hand.

Korean Babies Eat Seaweed

The majority of Koreans start baby food with purees, but in the form of rice porridges or otherwise known as juk. The practice of eating seaweed soup after giving birth is believed to date to the Goryeo Dynasty and started because people noticed whales eating seaweed after giving birth. Traditionally the soup symbolizes and honors Samsin Halmoni, a goddess who helps women through pregnancy and childbirth. Unsalted and crushed seaweed can be given to babies as soon as they start eating solid food, usually at the age of 6 months old. Seaweed is an excellent source of iodine, which helps the functioning of the thyroid gland, but it can also affect it, if consumed in larger amounts.

Japanese Babies Eat Octopus

In moderation and ideally after 12 months of age. Octopus is an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. However, as you'll soon learn, Japanese babies are fed Japanese foods like rice, tofu, and dashi from an early stage. Most Japanese parents spoon-feed their babies these foods until they are able to use utensils much later.
