I don't think we can give salt to babies who is not even an year old. As Nikitha rightly said it is always better to consult paediatrician.

Yes, I started at 4. 5 months. I started with masoor dal khichri with some veggies and masoor dal-roti (roti soaked in dal), boiled apple. Introduce dishes one at a time. Add butter/ghee, salt and even spices (like cumin). Toddlers usually like the salty taste and lap it up. salt

Hi Kajal, ideally check with your paediatrician whether it is right time to start your child on solid food. Each child has a separate growth and need and your doctor can advise you best.
