Comments: 

From a mother's perspective I am worried that there is only talk off (spoon) foods and spoon foods and no mention of baby-led weaning.

I would rather see that it says 'solids or solid foods by means of spoon feeding or baby-led weaning or a combination of both'.

At least you give the health workers and ultimately mothers/parents/carer's an option as to how to introduce solids.
