Q:

Which food best for 8 month baby



Weekly Meal Plans #Week1 Toddlers
Meal Plans: #Week 2 (7-12 months)
Meal Plans: #Week 3 (7-12 months)

u can give anything made at your home...

Please remember that for the baby’s first year, bm/fm is the main source of nutrition. Solids are not to be used to make the child “fatter/gain weight/fuller/sleep better”
This is because their digestive tracks are still not mature enough to process food completely so they may not be able to extract nutrition fully from solids. However, having said that, it doesn’t mean you should not feed them healthy options. This is the practice period which will set the pattern for their eating habits in the long run... so avoid force feeding, distraction feeding, giving junk food or masking tastes of things
No animal milk, salt, no sugar/jaggery/honey till the baby completes 1 year. Even post that if you can avoid, please do.
Before every solids meal, give bm/ff (about 20-30 mins before)
Continue to breastfeed as normal and don’t replace a feed session with solids.
When you introduce solids introduce everything individually first, be it fruit or vegetable or cereal.
6th month - 1 meals
7th Month-2 meals
8th Month- 3 meals
9th month- 3 meals and a snack if needed
10th Months- same; as above and give snacks as per demand.
If you are doing traditional weaning, then steam instead of boiling before pureeing
Start with breakfast and observe any reactions.
Offer variety. Don’t give the baby the same thing for several days
Don’t be alarmed if baby doesn’t eat more than a few grains or a bite in the initial days, it’s normal.
Follow the baby’s cues when it comes to quantity. If baby persistently refuses then don’t force.
Will add to this if I remember any more points
Some suggestions for starting weaning :-
PURÉES
Beets
Cauliflower
Carrot
Sweet potato
Pumpkin
Lauki
Zucchini
Peas
Rajma
Chick peas
Apples
Pears
Papaya
Strawberry
Plum
Any other fruit or vegetable
MASHED
Dal
Rice
Brinjal
Upma
You can also give upma or Ragi porridge
Post introducing everything on its own you can start doing combinations
Like peas and cauliflower
Apples and banana etc
Introduce without spice first so baby can taste everything in its natural form.
