Hi Lubna Naaz Your son's height and weight is good for his age. The eating schedule for child of this age is 3 semi-solids and 3-4 feeds of milk (breast milk and formula) in between. This comes to 6-7 feeds which can be given at the gap of 2hrs -21/2 hrs. You can start with milk in the morning, then give fruits like mashed banana or some fruit juice. For lunch & dinner you can give cereal based options like porridge( dalia,rice, suji, chirwa & try adding jaggery or cooked dates instead of sugar/ khichdi with vegetables you can use rice or dalia potato with other mashed vegeatbles like carrots , beans green leafy). mashed potato with semi-cooked egg yolk and vegetables. Remember all the food should be well cooked, well mashed/ pureed, and of the consistency ( starting with thin and gradually making it thicker) which the child can easily ingest.
