parenthood is a wonderful experience and each moment is to cherish. but it also comes with uncertainty, questions and dos and donts at each stage. i personally had this overwhelming experience with my 4 months daughter. each week the schedule, diet, plan changes and we have to adapt accordingly. i will be soon hitting the six-month stage and i have to be prepared for solid foods. my plan is simple. stick to traditional, clean and basic tried and tested baby foods. particularly, being a south indian, i will ensure to have rice and lentil-based diet for my daughter, avni. in this homemade cerelac recipe, i have used the same combination of rice grains, mixed lentils and also almonds. rice and lentil help to develop the taste buds, gain body weight, whereas almonds help in brain development. this recipe is no rocket science and has been used tested by many generations. i personally was on this diet, i will do the same to my daughter. however, each region and states of india, may have slight variations with the combination of ingredients used in this recipe. but this recipe is an ideal starter for babies.

furthermore, i would add some more tips, suggestions and how to start with 6 month baby food recipes. firstly, if you have just hit the 6-month stage, start the solid foods with small quantity. perhaps start with a half teaspoon and see how your baby reacts. do not limit just to this cerelac recipe and you can try other baby food variants like mashed fruits, vegetables and legumes. secondly, with the quantity, each baby is different and each baby would have a different appetite. however, start with small quantity and increase it as your baby demands. also, some babies may prefer to have this semi-solid food with a spoon, but some may prefer to have it with your fingers. hence do not have any prejudice about your baby. lastly, once you start with solid foods, it does not mean you need to stop breastfeeding. you may need to continue till 12 -24 months and gradually stop it (WHO recommends to continue till 24 months). perhaps, i will continue to post more and more about baby food diet plan and also highlight on how to gradually stop breastfeeding in another article.
