Q:

My daughter is 7 mnths now..am giving her fruit puree, boiled veg wid rice n daal n also cerelac apart from bm n fm..what else can be given as she's nt gaining weight properly.



Tanvi what u r giving is fine, can give the same 3 times a day along with BF. Try to avoid cerelac as home made food is good.

Weight gain is slower in the second half of the first year. We normally see babies gaining more height during this time. It is best to introduce foods slowly rather than rushing with solids. Avoid high fat foods as the baby's body cannot process these. At this age a breakfast of fruits, lunch of rice dal and veggies and a dinner of rice or ragi and veggies is a good combination.
