Crawling can start anytime from 7-9 months of age but every baby follows his own calendar and some babies do not crawl at all and that is all normal, So do not worry.Just try putting baby on his tummy and keep a toy nearby and ask baby to get it , may be baby will make small movements and soon baby will learn. Regarding food, at this age offer 3-4 small solid feeds(1/2 cup in each feed) and 3-4 milk feeds. Offer small amounts and do not force feed. Try to serve food in more attractive way, offer more of finger foods, encourage self feeding and offer variety. Finger Foods, like, Small squares of Bread or toast, Slices of cooked veggies like, carrot, sweet potatoes, white potatoes or Broccoli, Slices of soft fruits like, Banana, pear, peaches or slightly cooked apples rolled in cereals or Piece of Cheese/paneer. Include foods like, Infant cereals, like oats/ragi porridge, rava/ragi kheer, fruit custard, khichadi, dal-rice, Upma, idli, soft dosa, yogurt, cheese, paneer, pureed cooked meat, beans, and egg yolk.
