Answer: 1. Purees of Fruits:
Much of the fruits can be mashed or pureed without even cooking them. You can give fruits like bananas, mangoes, peaches, plums, etc. Fruits are the best solid feed to start your baby with.

Cooked vegetables like carrot, peas, potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc. can be well mashed with little water or milk, so that your baby can swallow it easily. This provides the much-needed vitamin C for immunity development in babies.
Apples are a good source of fibre and vitamins. Cooking and pureeing them is good for your baby. The applesauce is sweet with a slight acidic taste.

Question: What food to be given to 7 month old
Answer: Dear milk remains the prior part of your baby's diet other than that you need to experiment with your baby's favourite choices.. Make new dishes and see which your toddler likes.. You can make different porridges (vegetable khichdi, lentils and rice, only veggies), make different soups, give mashed potatoes, you can also give suji dishes (DO NOT ADD SUGAR OR SALT IF YOUR BABY IS YOUNGER THAN AN YEAR).. Also, try to include wheat bran, cashew nuts, and pumpkin seeds in your child 's meal.. It helps in building appetite.. You can divide these dishes as per as your convenience in the form of three regular meals.. Start with small bowls, then gradually you can increase the quantity..
