Initial foods 6 12 months

Starting Solid foods for your precious bundle of Joy can be a harrowing task for any new mother. There are a couple of key things that one needs to keep in mind when starting your child with solid foods.

 

1. Start the solid foods by giving your child only one new fruit / vegetable/ cereal in a Day. This would help you to know if your child is allergic to certain foods.

2. Start by making small portions, as the main objective is to introduce the child to the new foods and not fill his/her stomach. The idea is to let the baby get accustomed to solid food and then slowly increase the portion size.

3. Slowly increase the quantity and number of different foods in the child’s day.

 

The following are the foods that one can start their child on: 

1.Cereals and Grains: Rice , Semolina( Sooji) , Oatmeal(fresh ground not the instant one), Broken wheat ( Daliya )

2.Fruits : Bananas, Apples , Pumpkin , Peaches and coconut water

3.Vegetables: Sweet Potato, Potato, Carrots and Peas.

4.Protein: Cottage Cheese, Tofu , Chicken

5.Dairy : Plain Whole Milk Yogurt.

 

There are a couple of easy foolproof recipes for you to follow for the baby’s entire week: 

Recipe 1: Sooji cooked with Milk /Oatmeal cooked in Milk /Broken rice (Daliya) cooked in milk / saboodana cooked in Milk.

Recipe 2: Sooji Upma / Daliya Upma.

Recipe 3: Whole milk Yoghurt and fruit smoothie.

Recipe 4: Khichdi (rice+yellow moong dal) / Khichdi (daliya+red masoor dal)

Recipe 5: Mashed Bananas / Boiled and mashed apples

Recipe 6: Boiled and mashed Potato or sweet potato or pumpkin with a bit of Butter.

Recipe 7: Boiled and mashed Eggs with butter.

Recipe 8: Soups made of combination of vegetables / Combination of vegetables and masoor dal soup/ combination of vegetables and Daliya soup.

Recipe 9: Rice cooked with vegetable stock / Rice cooked with chicken and vegetable stock)

3.Make sure the consistency is not too tick or else your child might not like how it feels in the mouth. If it gets too thick, add more milk to it.

4.It usually takes 8- 10 minutes for the oats to soften completely and then add sugar / honey to taste.

Salt and honey is also avoidable... Babies don't need salt till they reach 1 or 1and half years... Honey is not good for their health... My baby's doctor's advice for me.

Salt, sugar & honey should not be given to babies under 1. This is recommended by pediatricians all over the world. A baby's kidney are not well developed and cannot process salt like an adult. This can lead to high amount of sodium in the blood which can be dangerous. Doctors advise against giving honey to a baby until he is an year old. Honey can contain a spore or spores of the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. This can cause a serious but rare form of food poisoning known as botulism.
