so that she is hungry and accepts e. Introduce only one food at a time, let her have it for 3-4 days and then introduce another food. Initially keep the consistency pouring/flowing and then thicken it according to her acceptance. Keep seasonings very mild, as babies don't generally like very strong flavours. Use whole milk and its products like curd, paneer, cheese, buttermilk etc. Fruit yogurt made of full-fat milk, full-fat milk based puddings like rice kheer/fruit custard/vermicelli kheer/gajar halwa. Increase intake of dals/legumes ( either mashed, in soup or as khichdi, dal-roti mash, eggs (as nogs or in soups), scrambled egg with added milk/fresh malai, poultry/fish (cooked &minced or soup) Give more of fruits like mango, banana, cheeku,litchi, grapes, dates. These may be added to their milkshakes as well. Fruit smoothie especially made of banana, honey and nuts Potato, sweet potato, colocassia, yam, besides other vegetables. Boiled potato/ sweet potato with melted cheese & little butter, boiled potato with cream cheese dip, Nuts like walnuts, almonds, peanuts finely powdered. Well mashed dried fruits like raisins, dates, currants, apricots etc.
