Some tips to keep in mind: don’t give honey to little ones under the age of 1 due to the risk of botulism; be cautious when introducing nuts if allergies to them run in the family; never give whole grapes or similarly sized food/fruit and they pose a very real choking hazard - always cut food into appropriate sizes to avoid this risk.
If you have any concerns about introducing solids for the first time to your little one or the baby-led weaning method, please speak to your child’s doctor.
