I am finding it very difficult to give solids to my 10 month old baby. I have tried moong dal, poha, moong dal and rice khichdi, peas puree. She refuses to eat after a couple of tea spoons. She is only interested in top feed and breast feed. However,she likes cerelac. Pls suggest, how to get her started on home food.nutrition Corner
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. Introduce one new food at a time, let the child accept it and gets used to it for few days. 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.
