Question: What kind of food shall I give to my baby?
Answer: Hi. Start with fruit pureed, as it’s easy to digest. Mashed bananaStewed apple Well steamed and pureed vegetables like carrots, sweet potato, pumpkin , beans, Pulse soup (moong dal ka pani)Rice Water (Chawal ka pani) Homemade single-grain cereals like rice, barley, oats mixed with breastmilk or formula milkSteamed and pureed fruits like pear, avocado, peach, chikoo.You can try the homemade vegetable soup for your baby. Pureed vegetables (sweet potatoes, squash),Pureed fruit (apples, bananas, peaches),Semi-liquid, iron-fortified cereal, Small amounts of unsweetened yogurt (no cow's milk until age 1). Always follow 3 days-wait-rule. That means you must keep a gap of 3 days between two new foods. This is the best way to check food allergies in babies. Stop feeding that particular food in case of food allergy. Don’t add breastmilk or formula milk during cooking, it should not be heated directly on the flame. Add breast milk or formula milk once the food is ready to eat for your baby. Baby food must be soft, properly cooked and easy to chew. Start with a very small quantity of 1 spoon and slowly increase the portion. Weaning food must be a single grain food.Always feed freshly cooked food to your baby. Do not add salt, sugar, honey to your baby’s food till baby is 1 year of age. Good luck.
