Question: Hi please share food chart for 6 month old baby.
Answer: Hi! I can understand your excitement as your baby is going to start outside food but its important to know the rules to wean the baby. Please read the following; 1. Solids should be started around 180 days. Till then only Breastmilk/FormulaMilk. 2. Also till 1 year bm/fm is the main source of nutrition. 3. Readiness of the baby should be tested which includes, baby able to sit with support, able to sit in tripod position for few seconds, lost tongue thrust. 4. Baby should be seated in upright position for feeding. Can be in your lap or booster chair or high chair. Lying down or in inclined position are choking hazards hence not adviced. 5. At 6 months, baby needs one meal only. Start veggies steamed & mashed, porridges or fruits. 6. Mashing is not mandatory. Though babies do not have teeth, their gums are strong enough to bite. If your baby is able to take family food, is fine to offer as-is(unmashed) from the start. Also most of the ripen fruits can be offered just slightly hand mashed (if required) and veggies can be steamed/boiled and hand mashed. Remember the fruit/veg looses its texture (which doesn't help them in learning curve) while mashing and also becomes difficult to change later. 7. No dal water, soups, juices, rice water and other diluted drinks. 8. Porridges should not be watery. It should be thick enough not to fall off the spoon. 9. Watery dishes have very less nutrition and can fill up their stomach replacing the nutritious breast milk. 10. Adding breast milk or formula will mask the original taste of the food. Also will be difficult while transition to family food so pls avoid adding. 11.Gradually move on to family food minus salt, sugar and less spices by 7-8 months. 12.Do not always have backups or alternatives for foods for baby's choice. Just offer what the family eats minus salt and sugar. Else baby will avoid what we offer knowing that he/she will get his favorites. 13. By 1 year, baby should be taking 3 meals + 1 or 2 snacks. 14. No Cerelac, biscuits and other processed foods. They are just loaded with sugar and not healthy. 15. No salt, No Sugar/honey/palm sugar/jaggery/palm jaggery till 1 yr. White sugar can be avoided as long as possible. 16. Water should be limited to 40 ml max per day. It can be given after a meal. 17. If the baby is breastfed on demand, water can be skipped. However a few sips can be offered for oral hygiene. 18. No Cow's/animal's milk as a drink till 1 year as it has complex proteins difficult for babies to digest. However a small amount can be used in dishes like porridges. 19. Offer a variety of tastes and texture so that baby gets used to it all.. 20. Let the baby decide the quantity. Do not force feed or distraction feed. Hope this helps you ……
