You may maximum offer a child in this age 3 solid feeds and 3-4 milk feeds. Keep enough gap between her feeds, be it solid or milk to ensure that she is hungry. Again total milk amount can be between 500-650 ml maximum in a day, so that the child doesn't fill her stomach with milk only. You can now, keep the consistency of her food more lumpy. Instead of pureed apple/pear, you can stew them a little and give very, very small pieces to the baby. You can give finger foods like thin stick of cucumber or little steamed stick of carrot or thin slice of apple/pear, rusk etc. But you need to take care and feed these with your own hands, as these pose choking risk for babies.
