For sample persons either less than 3 years old and older than 6 months or less than 6 months old who had ever been given solid food, (SOLFOODEV), SOLFOODAEV reports the age when the child started eating solid food on a daily basis.


While the 1981 Field Representative's Manual, did not provide a definition of solid food, it does provide examples, "such as commercially prepared strained and junior foods, "table foods," or any other non-liquid foods."

The Field Representative's Manual directs interviewers to give example foods in this question only if SOLFOODEV was not asked.


This variable is only available for 1981.


  • 1981: Sample persons under age 3 (and if under 6 months old, only those who have ever been given solid food).
