2 Tasty Healthy Food Recipes For Your Baby

Looking for healthy food recipes for your 6 month-old baby? We have got you covered. Introducing new flavors to your baby’s food diet after 6 months is a good idea. I introduced Brat H to Indian baby food recipes at 6 months and started with a few fruits. This included bowls of cereal, pulses, rice, and veggies. Sometimes I am still trying to figure out about weaning food. What more can be added to the balanced diet of my 8-month-old infant but the search for healthy food recipes for baby never ends.

Next month, he will be in the 9-12 months old age group! I know!! Time flies. Since he is getting bigger, he can eat various foods that are cooked in our family meal. Depending on the appetite, the infant needs to be fed 2-3 meals. Include 1-2 snacks to your baby having a variety of fruits and vegetables.
