milk should be restricted to 400-500 ml maximum in a day, so that the children don't fill the stomach with milk only. Keep enough gap between their feeds, be it solid or milk to ensure that children are hungry. From one year of age you should start with three meal pattern, i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner along with two snacks. Introduce one new food at a time, let the children accept it and get used to it for few days. Introduce another new food only after a week. Do not introduce new foods back to back, it would confuse the children and would lower their acceptance. Try and keep the consistency thin to semi solid, depending on children'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,fruits etc.
