Fruits and Veggies for 9 12 months Babies Infants and What to Avoid

Do you as a mother of a 9-12 month old baby struggle with the choice of fruits and veggies that you may give your infant ? Do you always ask yourself -- can I give this fruit to my baby or not or can I give this veggie or not? 

If your answers are yes, then worry not. Around 9 months of age, babies start accepting different foods and develop an appetite for solids. Here’s a list of veggies and fruits you can give to your infant at this stage. Our nutritionist Puja Sharma Vasisht brings a list of fruits and veggitables that you may give your 9 months or more old child.

 

What Fruits & Vegitables for Babies of 9-12 Months

1. Starchy vegetables and fruits: Such as potato, sweet potato, beetroot, tapioca - well boiled and mashed. These can be given alone or combined with other easily digestible vegetables like carrots, pumpkins, gourds, peas or beans. You may also make a soup or a halwa of these vegetables.

2.) Dark green leafy vegetables - Well washed, cooked and pureed - are a good source of both iron and vitamin A, Add to the starchy vegetable soup for a boost of iron and vitamin A, essential for the development of immune system, blood, and good eyesight.

3.) Seasonal Fruits: Like apple, pear, peach can be stewed/cooked with little water and given to the baby. Banana, mango, cheeku are starchy fruits, which can be just mashed and given to your baby. For juice, you can use fruits like apple, grapes, pomegranate, pineapple.

 

What Fruits to Avoid for Child

Fruits like orange, sweet lime are best avoided as they may cause an allergy. Start these after consulting your pediatrician around one year of age.

Thing to Remember: when any new food is introduced to the baby, it should be given in little amounts first. Wait for a day to see if it is not causing any allergy or indigestion – only then you may continue with that food.

hi my baby is 7 months old, I give her one whole boiled egg once in a week grinded with rice .I have started giving veggies like potato,carrot, pumpkin,ladys finger, beetroot juice and fruits like banana , apple and pappaya. she tolerates this all.. guys every week introduce a new veggie and fruits to your baby and continue it for 3 days at same time and look for any abnormal changes, if not continue it in a routine manner..

Hi surya boil the egg for 12min and separate egg yolk. Then add little water or rice soup. Give this to baby. Give one or two table spoon for the first time. If there is no problem give it on every alternative day.

yes I too have started giving these veggies and fruits slowly from 6 months onwards. my kid is 8 months old last month i enthusiastically gave sweet lime half fruit juice. from that day he suffered from throat infection viral. so better to avoid or try in little at first then increase the quantity
