I hope you are doing well. Salt and spices need to be started only after a year. You can give him this diet and don't give him kheer before a year especially if you are adding milk to it. Anything with milk needs to be given only after a year. On waking up-Breast milk/formula feed Breakfast- Ragi porridge/oats porridge/daliya porridge/stewed apple/pear Naptime Lunch- Dal soup/Rice kanji or mashed rice mixture/Thin vegetable khichdi/Pureed carrots Breastfeed/formula milk Dinner- Vegetable soup/Mashed potato or sweet potato/Rice kanji/Dal soup/Oats porridge Breast milk
