My baby is at a "day mother" as I'm a working mom,please could you tell me if my baby's diet is ok,if not where can I improve it. She sometimes has tea inbetween meals and water. She only has her 2 bottom teeth at the moment.

Dear Lynel
The diet you are using seems adequate. You can also click on 'Child' at the top of this page, then on 'Nutrition' and read all the articles on Diets for Infants of various ages, which will give you all the information you require now and as the lassie grows older.
Best regards
