1.     Salt

Children’s kidney can adapt to a great amount of salt. According to expert’s recommendations, you shouldn’t let babies eat more than 0.4g salt a day. Some foods that have a high level of salt like cheese, sausage, bacon should be limited, too.

2.     Sugar

Moms shouldn’t children under 1 year old eat sweet cake, biscuit, candy, ice-cream… because those high-sugar foods can cause tooth decay while baby’s teeth are still young. Hence, you’d better put an essential amount of sugar in baby’s meal.

3.     Honey

Honey is not only a healthy food, but also used for disease treatments. However, for kids under 1 year old, honey can perform their great effects. That’s because honey has a high level of sugar and contains the spore of Clostridium botulinum that can cause poisoning, constipation and comatose to infants. Hence, honey is in the inhibited-food list of kids under 1 year old, so moms should take notice.  

4.     Strawberries

The sweet strawberries that are rich in vitamins are the perfect choice for family daily meals, but for babies, it’s just opposite. Strawberries not only have lots of acid that affects baby’s stomach and intestine, but also create irritation like prickly heat.

5.     Eggs

Egg is a source of protein, vitamin D and minerals; though, it can cause allergy to babies. Do not let babies eat raw or uncooked eggs. The only way to let babies eat eggs safely is that you have to make sure both of the egg white and egg yolk are well done. Nonetheless, you need to take notice of the fact that you should only feed your kids with the egg yolk because the protein in the egg white can cause allergy or allergic development in the future.

Remember that you should only feed your kids with the well-cooked egg yolk.

6.     Fruit juice

Juice has a great amount of sugar but a great loss of the nutrients that are only in the origin state of the fruit. The under-1-year-old babies who have too much juice won’t be able to fully absorb mother’s milk, formula milk and nutritious foods, which leads to malnutrition.

The 6-month-old ones can try some juice in their meal. Start with a small amount about 1-2 ounce/day. When babies grow older, you can feed them 4 ounce/day. The juice needs extracting from clean and safe fruits. Do not let children drink industrial juice or something high-sugar like soda.

7.     Shellfish

Shellfish as shrimps, crabs, oysters, snail… can easily cause allergy, so it’s recommended by doctors that you should only feed children with it a year after they are born. Before feeding babies with shellfish, you should ask for doctor’s advice and learn about your family allergic history.

8.     Fibrous foods

Kids grow fast, so they need providing with calories and nutrients. Fibrous foods like fruits and vegetables are good for them, but the high-fiber foods like black bread and other high-fiber bread should be put away from baby’s meal. That’s because those foods make babies quickly feel full and avoid eating other foods, which decreases the absorption of those important nutrients like calcium and iron.       

9.     Some kinds of fish

Moms should avoid fish that has a high level of mercury, such as shark, swordfish, maclin… because mercury can cause bad effects on baby’s development in nervous system.

10.  Pate

You should avoid feeding babies with pate including vegetative pate, because it can contain listeria bacteria which cause poisoning to babies.

11.  Cow’s milk

Although formula milk comes from cow’s milk, but you shouldn’t use cow’s milk as a drink for the under-1-year-old babies. Not like formula or breast milk, cow’s milk has too little amount of potassium and vitamin, so it can’t afford the needs of the baby’s development.

Besides, the under-1-year-old ones can’t digest the enzyme and protein in cow’s milk and the compound of it can harm them.

12.  Some kinds of cheese

Moms shouldn’t let children under 1 year old eat soft cheese.

13.  Grape and hard foods

Seeds like corn seeds, the whole grape, raw vegetables, dried grape, confectionery and small hard seeds shouldn’t be allowed for babies to eat because they are the top reasons of choking in children. So, moms should cut those foods into very small pieces and cook them well before feeding babies with them.
