Q:

Hello mommies..

My baby is about to get 9 months. He is refusing anything fed by spoon. So I am not able to feed him all the healthy options like porridge, homemade cerelac, saliva, khichdi etc.. he is eating roti, chilla and hand eatables .

I am not getting enough ideas on what to feed him. Plz suggest me recipes that are healthy and can be fed through hand



Honey you should be happy because your baby is so smart to eat all these. 2 plus years babies doesn't chew and moms gets tensed. Porridge, homemade cerelac, kichadi etc doesn't give any exposure to bite chew and manipulate food , they only gulp down. All these has to be weaned off by 8 months itself , nothing is more healthy and nutritious than family food, whatever you all eat as a family. Include good fats like ghee, unsalted butter, coconut oil, banana, avocado, potatoes, Paneer etc in baby's diet regularly Baby is on right momma so you be super proud.
