This video shows Sophie who is 21 weeks old exploring a ball. The bright colours spark her interest and she explores it further using "generalised mouthing". For babies, toys and food are engaged with in the same way:

1. See something that sparks interest

2. Reach out for it and pick it up

3. Explore it with the mouth

With this in mind, why would you want to wean your baby using baby rice which is beige and not interesting at all? It is far better to introduce bright colourful foods when weaning your baby. After all, how many beige baby toys do you own?
