    First Foods

    D has been on solids for a little over a month now and he's had

    rice cereal
    pears
    carrots
    papaya
    sweet potoato
    sweet corn
    pumpkin
    oats
    banana
    winter melon

    We're now going to be a bit adventurous and try some combos. Maybe we can share some recipes?

    I was going to start with combining a couple of foods he's already tried.

    carrots + sweet potato
    corn + sweet potato:

    Hi
    My little one just refused to eat any baby cereal(rice,oats,multigrain,wheat) right since he was 6 months old. so I had to give him rice (the variety we eat) and dal cooked together with 2 or 3 already introduced veggies. thankfully he liked the mashed khichdi. u could try that too.

    Rice cereal and some pureed fruit(instead of milk) is also a good breakfast recipe.

    soft roti dipped in a veggie soup can be tried a little later to encourage chewing.

    good luck and have fun

    Hi Ranjani

    Thanks for your reply. D has been having rice cereal and fruit for dinner.

    I'm going to try the congee rice and veggies next week. Did you use white or brown rice? I was thinking of trying brown.

    D doesn't have any teeth yet, so I guess I should wait till they make an appearance before introducing roti right?

    I used white rice. Brown is healthier.
    Yeah u could wait for the teeth to surface before giving roti.
    Cheers
