If I am not breastfeeding, how can I include prebiotics in my baby’s diet?

Some infant formulas may include prebiotics. You can ask your healthcare professional for advice about whether your baby requires a formula containing prebiotics.At around 6 months, and not before 4, you can start introducing solid foods that contain prebiotics.

Some age-appropriate foods that contain prebiotics are:

Fruits: bananas, watermelon, apples, nectarines, white peaches, dates
Grain sources: oats, bran muffins, rye crackers, wheat bread
