Hi Jyoti...how old is your baby?

Seema Kazi Rangnekar

Hi jyoti, some babies are fussy eaters. You will have to try out a variety of foods with different recipes.
Here are some suggestions:
- salads (cucumber, carrots, tomatoes)
- mix veg soup (dudhi+carrot+tomato+ potato) you can add spinach, cauliflower, peas as well

- oats porridge with dates (khajoor)/ banana / chickoo

- nachni porridge in milk / water with dates
- nachni dosa made with butter milk (chaas)
- stuffed veg Parathas
- fruit with yoghurt
- mix dry fruit laddoos
- mix veg pulav
- noodles with lots of veggies

The aim is to try out different recipes. Just like adults, babies too like a change. Keep offering different foods. At the same time eat with your baby. Tell him how yummy it is. Don't fuss too much over him, gently keep trying. Also set a routine - eat around the same time and in the same place every day.
