How Much Does Baby Food Cost?

Once a baby begins to eat solids (“solids” refers to baby food and cereal, not actual table food) the cost of food can start to affect your monthly grocery bill.

Usually, this takes place between four to six months old, and babies will begin eating simple rice cereal and then will progress to a mix of baby food and cereal; eventually, they will be able to eat all baby food and will no longer need formula or cereal.  This transition usually takes place when they are between 12 to 15 months old.  Refer to our chart below to see what your baby can eat at their age.
