Looking for healthy baby food recipes for your 6 month-old? We have got you covered. Introducing new flavours and different tips and tricks to give solid foods to your baby food diet after 6 months is a good idea. I started at around 5+ months and even though I introduced Brat H to a few fruits, bowls of cereal, pulses, rice and veggies. I am still figuring out how and what more can be added to the balanced diet of this 8-month-old infant of mine and searching for healthy baby food recipes.
Next month, he will be in the 9-12 months old age group! I know!! Time flies. Yeah, so, since he is getting bigger, in my opinion, starting now, he can eat various foods that are cooked in our family meal. Ideally, depending on the appetite, the infant needs to be fed 2-3 meals and 1-2 snacks to your baby having a variety of fruits and vegetables.
