For nearly 50 years, it’s been a given that an American baby’s first food will likely be a bowl of bland white rice cereal made of processed white flour. But we believe, and the research tells us, that babies deserve (and want!) a lot more flavor! So for inspiration, we looked around the globe to see the very different kinds of foods parents are giving their little ones. These cosmopolitan babies get everything from miso soup to yak butter to fill their adorable bellies. No passport required, let adventurous eating begin wherever it is you call home.
