Keep your baby well hydrated it is very important in such season. For the baby to gain weight you can include ghee or butter tossed meals as oils and fats give energy and increase weight. Include bananas Yogurt ragi oats mashed potatoes dal eggs fruit juices. You can also give them new finger food prepared at home like French fries or other creative things recipes are found online. You can give them seasonal fruits that are tasty and healthy.
The health drinks like pediasure bonevita horlicks.are mass produced. They contain chemicals taste enhancers and alot of sugar. They are not exactly healthy. Try giving ur baby milk shakes with his favorite fruits. You can add some ghee with dry fruit powder it makes a very healthy drink with Amazing nutrient value. This will give ur baby the vitamins and minerals required.
