Even I wanted an expert opinion on the same issue whether we shud give sugar and salt till the baby is one year... as many people have suggest not to give the same to baby till one year .... Also if we don't add sugar and salt then if we can use jaggery and rock salt as substitute till the baby is one year old ?? Please suggest

my baby is 9 months old and till now I have not given him salt and sugar as doctor advised to avoid it .I agree that it becomes tough but i am trying to avoid it so instead of sugar I have introduced him dates which is good for babies you may use raisins as wellfor sweetening his dishes I make receipes of oats,Ragi,dalia,suji with dates and use a pinch of cardamon and dry fruit powder. I also add fruits to the dishes but as it is winter I don't use much of fruit from few days I have started using dried apricot and prunes which has a high nutritional value and my baby loves these receipes.. For vegetables puree I add milk in it and he likes it. you can give sweet potato also it has a great taste my. baby enjoys it as well and again it is high on nutrition.

I do agree that you don't need to add sugar and salt to Infant food will take turn 1. Infants don't know the taste of food, they are developing the taste so you can start the food without it and gradually start adding just a bit of either. Once you start to give them food with salt and sugar they will not eat the food without it. Moreover, it is recommended that you should not start external milk before the child turns one. The breast milk contains appropriate amount of sugar and salt needed for the baby.
