Do NOT feel as though your baby should be eating solid foods according to any schedule. Your baby will eat as much solid foods as your baby needs ? trust your baby cues. Start out slowly and let baby take time to taste and experiment with the food.
A 6 month old baby can eat only a tsp of mashed food initially, slowly increase the quantity to a tbsp and then more. 1. Banana- mash with a fork or run in a blender. 2. Apple- peel,core,steam for about 5 to 6 minutes. Puree in a blender 3. Chickoo (sapota)- mash with a fork and spoon 4. Pear- peel and core, steam for 5 to 6 minutes 5. Papaya ? mash with a fork or blend 6. Ripe avocado ? add it to a blender and puree
After introducing fruits, you can try these. Continue to feed fruits for breakfast. first 1 week ? rice cereal , 2nd week apple rice or rice cereal with boiled carrot, 3rd week ragi porridge Or apple ragi or oats porridge Or apple oats Or clear moong dal soup
? Yogurt is very safe and good and should be included in the diet for 6 month old baby.
