Answer: At 6 or 7 months old, some infants may eat 4-6 ounces of food per day while babies who are just starting solids at 6 or 7 months of age may beeating only 1-2 ounces per day.
Below are some type of foods which u can give to ur baby :-
1.) Pureed vegetables (sweet potatoes, squash)
2.) Pureed fruit (apples, bananas, peaches)
3.) Pureed meat (chicken, pork, beef)
4.) Semi-liquid, iron-fortified cereal.
5.) Small amounts of unsweetened yogurt (no cow's milk until age 1)
Some finger food favorites:
O-shaped toasted oat cereal; small chunks of banana or other very ripe, peeled fruit like mango, plum, pear, peach, cantaloupe, or seedless watermelon; small cubes of tofu; well-cooked pasta spirals, cut into pieces; thin cheese strips or very small chunks of cheese; cut-up seedless grapes ...
Most pediatricians recommend starting your infant on Yogurt around 7-8 months of age. Some pediatricians also recommend yogurtas a great first food (from 6 months+). Selecting a Whole Milk Yogurt is the most beneficial to your infant as babies need fats in their diets for proper growth.
You can give ur baby a variety of food but in a puree or porridge state.
Breakfast idly with breast milk or formula upma
Roti with milk or formula mashed dosa mashed
Snack boiled apple mashed banana puree vegetable soup diluted fresh fruit juices ragi milk ghee sugar
Lunch dal rice mashed khichdi sooji kheer cerelac or nestum
Snack whole grain puffs mashed potatoes tossed in butter peach puree
Dinner should always be light as hard carbohydrate like wheat ragi dal can cause indigestion or loose motions
Give sooji kheer nestum or cerelac by 8 pm u can keep feeding ur baby breast milk or formula as needed between the meals. Be sure to use alot of ghee as fats and oils help in gaining weight.
To wean the baby you need to try out home made food according to WHO salt and sugar poses risk to small babies hence no salt or sugar till 1 yr of age.
Baby should be weaned off with normal food like applesauce, mashed banana, steamed carrot puree, pumpkin puree, oats porridge etc.
Please do not offer much sugary food as it developes sweet tooth for the child which again is harmful in the long run.
Hope this helps!
