hi l'm Maansi, my daughter is 1 yr 3 months old.. she only like it eat raagi.. in between she take a little chapati... she like spicy food... how to introduce her to daliya? n she is mostly on formula feed... so when can I start cow milk to her?nutrition Corner
not only dalia but you can introduce all other varieties of foods, so that the child can get better range of nutrients. Try and make your child have meals with family. This would encourage her to start with solids. Keep enough gap between her meals. You can start with cow's milk now, from a hygienic and reliable source. Introduce another new food only after a week. Do not introduce new foods back to back, it may confuse the child and would lower her acceptance. Try and keep the consistency thin to semi solid, depending on child's preference and swallowing/chewing capacity. You can give porridge of suji, sagi, dalia, rice flakes, ragi etc. Kheer of apple, rice etc. halwa of suji, atta, pumpkin, gajar, sweet potato etc. Khichri, upma, soft scrambled egg yolk, soups, mashed veggies, chapatti, rice,idli, dosa, uttapam,fruits etc.
