In step 1, we are using very bland items – one meat source and white rice.
The Baby Steps Diet - Step 1
Incorporate 1 part chicken and white rice combination to existing food. The white rice is intended to help ease any diarrhea associated with changing foods. If your dog's GI tract is especially sensitive, work up to this amount throughout the week so by the end of the week, you are doing 1 part chicken/rice, and 3 parts current food. This recipe mentions one week, but every dog is an individual and transition times may vary in either direction.
