my baby entered into 5thmonth now. is it suggestable to give strained fruit juices? 

Roopashree Siddireddy

No. Baby should complete 6 months..Then you can slowly introduce one by one. First this is water and softly cooked mashed rice. Then you can give mashed banana, coconut water, mashed apple, daal paani. avoid citrus juice,milk, salt, sugar till baby turns 1 year


As a thumb rules its best to exusive breastfeed for first 6 months. Weaning Foods, Weaning Food Recipe (4 to 6 months) are very good reads. There is plenty of useful info on the app right here at your finger tips

Solid foods should be started only after six months. When we start solids it is best to avoid strained foods like strained juices soups dal water and rice water as these are low calorie. Calorie compromise in this early stage will result in compromise in the brain development.
