What diet plan should be followed for a 6 month old baby?

By Hey Bee January 23 2020 in Babycare

After 6 months, the child can now be introduced to semi-solids and solids. 

*Breast milk or formula

*Pureed or strained fruits (banana, pears, applesauce, peaches, avocado)

*Pureed or strained vegetables (well-cooked carrots, squash, sweet-potato)

*Pureed meat

*Pureed tofu

*Small amounts of unsweetened yogurt (no cow’s milk until age 1)

*Pureed legumes (black beans, chickpeas, black-eyed peas, lentils, kidney beans)

*Iron-fortified cereal (oats, barley)

Wondering how much to give? 

Here is the ideal quantity:

*1 teaspoon fruit, gradually increased to 2 or 3 tablespoons in four feedings

*1 teaspoon vegetables, gradually increased to 2 or 3 tablespoons in four feedings

*3 to 9 tablespoons cereal in 2 or 3 feedings

The quantity will differ as per the age and weight of the child.
