I support preet's comment. Thanks for pointing it out dear. i missed mentioning it in my blog @shrutie-i started the diet at 5 months. first introduced the fruit, riped mashed banana to be specific, in the morning.... rest breast feed. Then after 10 days ..boiled mashed apples with a pinch of salt in the evening 5 pm..... then khichdi at 6 months. both for lunch and dinner... first about quarter a bowl... then gradually increased quantity as he got settled with the taste and digestion.... citrus fruits shud be avoided till 7-8 months as it may cause colic. So I swapped between apple,pear and Chiku till he was 8 months.. then introduced pomegranate juice/orange juice. Banana helps in bowel clearance and is high in energy and essential minerals hence banana 8s constant for me everyday. Hope this shud help.

Nupur I think ur menu is very heavy for 5 mnth old baby.. starting solids shud include 1 or 2 meals per day along with bottle feed(milk).. slowly whn ur baby turns 7 or 8 mnth old.. then u can follow this menu.. my baby is abt to turn 7 mnth.. i am giving him 2 meals per day along with 2 bottles.. rest he is on mother feed.. daal soup, suji kheer,glucose biscuit with milk,cerelac,apple juice r very lyt n healthy for starting.. best of luck..

The main source of nutrition in the first year shud be milk only... however introducing them to solids adds variety to their taste buds.. and also helps them to develop their digestive system.

you may try the sample menu I created n used for my son. 9 am half a banana , mixed with 1 tbsp of wheat apple cerelac. 12 noon-pomegranate juice/orange juice. /musambi juice. 30-60 ml. 1 pm -Moong dal khichdi. with a dollop of butter ghee. (U can add vegetables once ur kid is 7 months old).. make a paste in grinder for them to digest well. 5 pm -boiled n mashed apple. //pear// Chiku. 8 pm- khichdi again.
