Fruits (As Weaning Food)

Fruits are the best weaning foods as they are easy to digest. They should be mashed and then given.Seasonal fruits like papaya, chikoo, apples, bananas are very healthy.

Mashed fruits are a good first weaning food.  They are easy to digest and palatable to the baby.

Mashed bananas

Bananas should be mashed, and then given as such or mixed with malai (cream) or milk.  First start with a quarter banana, and increase it every week until the baby accepts it. 

Boiled and mashed apples

You can also offer apples instead of bananas to your baby.  Take an apple and cut it into pieces, taking care to remove the center core.  Boil it and then mash it either with a spoon or in a mixer.  Start with half an apple and increase it to the limit accepted by the child.  It has been observed that many babies get constipation with apple.  In this case, try other fruits like papaya.

Other seasonal fruits

Other seasonal fruits like pears (to be prepared like apples), chikoo (simply mashed), papaya (simply mashed), mango (simply mashed) can also be given.  It has been observed that papaya helps soften stools if the baby is constipated.
