Homemade Baby Food Recipes for 6 12 Months

As every mom, even I had thousands of questions about starting solid foods for my little one (who now is 7 months).What food recipes to give? Will he be able to digest it? Is it safe to give? Just to answer these questions from my experience, I'm writing this blog, giving homemade food recipes for 6-12 months babies with ingredient & method of preparation.

Here in this blog, learn how to make a complete range of baby food at home, from first foods to full meals, including: 1) Rice Kanji 2) Rice Payasam 3) Carrot Khichdi 4) Ragi Porridge. Get the recipes now !

 

What Should Baby's First Foods Be?

Most babies do not have teeth at this time, so the foods that they are fed should be pureed, and easily digestible. It is important to note here that baby's tummy has never ingested foods till now, so we as mothers need to be very careful when we feed our child. 

Easy to Make Nutrient Rich Food Recipes for 6-12 months babies

  1. Rice kanji recipe for babies:

    Ingredients for rice kanji

    • Boiled rice (puzhagala arasi):3 cups. Wash it well and dry in sun over a clean cotton cloth
    • Bengal gram: 1 cup
    Method to prepare nutritious rice kanji recipe

    Dry roast the above two ingredients in a pan separately, until they become hot. Cool it down and grind it separately. Stir in air tight containers. Boil one glass water; add 3 tbsp rice powder, 1/2 tbsp Bengal gram powder. Add 5 numbers of jeera. Mix continuously. Add 2 drops gingely oil/ghee. Salt if required, nut better to avoid. Allow the rice to cook well. Allow it to cool down a bit. Feed it when warm, as it thickens after completely cooling.

  2. Rice Payasam recipe:

    Ingredients to make rice payasam

    • Rice Powder 3 tbsp
    • Jaggery water
    • Ghee
    Method to prepare rice payasam recipe

    Boil one glass water, add 3 tbsp rice powder. Add jaggery water (soak a small piece of Jaggery in water and strain it). Mix continuously. Add 2 drops ghee. Allow the rice to cook well. Allow it to cool down a bit. Feed it when warm, as it thickens after completely cooling.

  3. Carrot khichdi recipe 

    Ingredients to make carrot khichdi

    • Rice powder 3 tbsp
    • Paasi parap (moong dal) 1 tbsp
    • Carrot : one small piece
    • Jeera: 4-5 no
    • Pinch turmeric
    • Pinch salt
    • Ghee 2-3 drops
    Method to make carrot khichdi

    Add All the above ingredients, one glass water in a cooker. Keep it for 4-5 whistles in slow flame. Keep the cooker aside for ten minutes for the pressure to reduce. Blend this mixture in a blender/mixie. Feed it when warm. This recipe can be tried with beans/potato/drumstick/beetroot (7 months). You can slowly start combining two vegetables together.

  4. Ragi porridge recipe 

    Ingredients to make ragi porridge 

    • Ragi - one cup
    • Milk 2 cups
    • Water-3 cups
    Method to prepare ragi porridge

    Clean ragi, remove sticks/stones if any. Wash it well. Soak one cup ragi in two cups of water the previous night. In the morning, strain this water. Grind it with 1 cup water in a mixer. Add more water if required. Using a clean cotton cloth, filter the mixture. You will get half a glass of ragi milk. Take a vessel, add this to milk and allow it to boil of two minutes. Add jeera and salt if required. Mix continuously to avoid forming lumps. Once you see a nice shining glaze over it, turn off. Feed it when warm.

When Should Start First Baby Foods?

Most paediatricians recommend introducing semi-solids to the baby after the age of 6 months. My paediatrician told me that at the age of 6-12 months breast milk or formula become insufficient to address baby's growing need of nutrients. Hence, to make up for healthy development for babies, it is important to introduce them to some solids foods once they are 6, 7 or 8 months old. However, every baby is different and they have different needs, so it is best to consult the doctor on how and when you should start giving semi-solids to the baby. It may be noted here that milk – breast or formula still rules your baby's diet in the first year.

How Can I Know If My Kid Is Ready For Solid Foods?

My little one started making chewing faces and noticing us very closely when she saw us eating anything. She soon started trying to reach for plates of food, so much so that I had to ensure that nothing is in her reach. Basically when the baby gains head control and can sit up straight with some support, she can have solids.

For 6months baby, start with mashed fruits (apple, banana). Then boiled mashed veggies(carrot, potatoes, sweet potatoes), then liquid ragi malt.. Then slowly increase it to semisolid consistent and quantity. Introduce each variety in particular gap of days.. Wait for babies digestive system. If it suits then go to next item. Don't introduce at a time two or more varieties.. Then after few days u can give rice..

As a nutritionist, just wanted to add that it would be better to keep the amount of liquid to minimum in whatever foods you give to your 6-9 Mo th old child. Their stomachs are very small. Giving them predominantly liquid food will not give them sufficient nutrients. Keep the consistency to that of honey. The kid can simply lick off the food. And ensure that the food is all mashed. Kanji, as mentioned, is a good option; just ensure it has honry-like consistency.

Also as I read in the above comments you have mentioned about giving jaggery rather than sugar and salt, so when can I add sugar and salt for my baby? Thank you,

@Akshata : It is good to avoid dairy products like cow milk and butter. But adding a very small amount of ghee will cause no harm after 6 months. You can use 1tbsp for a day. You can also start giving home made paneer after 1 year.

@deepa: yes it should be avoided. Jaggery and fruit puree is better option to sweeten. But adding a very little amount of salt after 9 months is fine,I had consulted my pediatrician too. Otherwise your little one will like only sweet food later. This is my own personal experience. My baby loves anything sweet. He hates other food. I'm slowly teaching him to like other foods. It's just a suggestion.

@nisha: please start with just one meal. Start during the day time, 10:00am . Start with very little quantity, don't expect your baby to complete the food. Repeat the same food for four days, if no allergy or stomach upset you can continue with the same. Next week change to two feeds. 10:00am and 5:00 pm Third week 10:00am, 1:00pm ,6:00pm Continue for the complete month. Seventh month you can make it to four feeds.

@hema:I would suggest you not to give more water to your baby. If your baby is breast fed water is not necessary if he/she is less than 6 months. While having solid foods, yes you can give them half a cup for a meal. Try to give only if necessary, you should not fill your babies tummy with water.

@shilpa: it is always correct to feed baby solids in sitting position. Try to invest in rocking chairs, it costs around 1000, you can make your baby to sit in a slightly slanted position, they are usually completely adjustable. It also has belts. It can be converted to a rocker too. Other options is to use pillows, to get a slanted position. But you need to keep pillow on the sides too,to make sure your baby is not hurt. Since babies get fussier while eating it becomes difficult to handle the baby, pillow, plate :)

Good one. Top feeds can be given provided its adviced by the pediatrician. Weaning ideally shud start by 6m. Salt n sugar cannot b given??? Y so. They r natural ingrediants. Yes too much s bad. And any food in the right quantity and consistency is good for the baby. Fruits( non citrus to be introduced first) Contain sugar and salts, coconut water, cooked n mashed veggies all contain some amount of salt. But if the child s not liking the so. called feed, u can add some amunt of it to make it palatable. I would suggest introduce one type at a time, avoid ghee initially. As baby starts accepting feeds u can gradually add nuts and ghee . Egg can be gradually introduced later on by 8m.

@shwetha: initially when you start the intention is just to introduce them to solid foods. Not for filling the tummies. So what ever you try , make in very small quantities, 1 or 2 table spoon. Do not expect your baby to complete it. Always follow the four day rule, do not try a new food before four days completion of trying a food. Slowly you will understand what your baby likes and what he dislikes.

@shilpa: it is always good to give boiled rice and it can be digested easily. Yes, you need to wash it and dry it . spread it on a clean cotton cloth.

@ rohini, make semolina kanji. Ragi kanji they are very nutritous. Also u can give him mashes potatoes, banana, moong daal. khichdi. but start from small quantity so that even u know wat ur baby likes n can digest well. Homemade cerelac is another good option.

@Amruta, Hi, Ragi should be roasted on slow flame and then powdered. Then this can be used in the porridge.
