you have to start with few spoons only. Introduce only one food at a time, give it for 3-4 days and only introduce another food. This would help the baby accepting and getting familiar with taste of that particular food. Do not introduce new foods back to back, it may confuse the child and would lower her acceptance. Keep enough gap between her feeds, be it solid or milk to ensure that she is hungry. You may start with strained vegetable soup including green leafy vegetables , fresh fruit juice. At 6 months you can give ragi porridge, rice kheer, suji kheer or phirni etc. You can gradually start with mashed banana, boiled potatoes, dal water also. Boiled water can be given especially after each solid feed. Starting with a spoon or two you may gradually increase the amount to 120-250 ml in a day. Keep the seasonings mild, keep the consistency flowing initially. You may give three solid feeds maximum, in a day. Click on the following link for details on introducing solids Hope this helps
