Kids & Food:diet for 4 month old--pls help
2007-04-03
Name: Karuna
Hi,
My son will complete 5th month on 14th april. Till now I used to bf him exclusively. I have just started to give him extra food-dal paani, carrot puree mixed with milk and banana mixed with milk. Though he takes little bit of carrot paste but doesnt like banana paste. i dont know wht to give him next. Pls suggest as I can give rice only after annaprashana 6th month. Can i give him barley as many websites suggest? How to prepare it?
He looks very lean and looks much less th n his age as his birthweight was 2.3kgs.
Wht other vegetables can I introduce at this age?
Is Cerelac good to give? my doctor suggests tht its good to give only home made food.
Pls tell me whts veg, fruits and cereals I can start with him?

Thanks,
Karuna

HI-my twins are now 7 months old. they were born premies but now the dr is very impressed with their weight gain. i give cerelac to them in the morning sometime mixed with a fruit. For lunch, they have khichudi (mashed dal n rice) with a mashed vegie-alu,carrot,pumpkin, chicken stalk,peas mass,laouki mash). In the evening, they have a fruit-somtimes 2 fruits combind in cerelac. Then for dinner they have cerelac again. you could try the same. alternatly you could try dalia, oatmeal or ragi for breakfast.

Hi Karuna,
This is healthy recipe for babies of 4months to 7months old.
1cup rice,
1/4th cup urad dal,
5to 6seeds ajwain
Procedure

Firstly roast rice and urad dal separetely.Then mix both and make to powder or like fine ravva and store it in a bottle.Take a spoon of this powder and make it like a paste with water.And at the same time take some water in a small vessel and keep it over the stove.Once the water boils add the paste to it and keep it until it boils.It takes hardly few seconds.Then take this paste to a small bowl and let it cool and after it cools you can add one spoon of ghee and pinch of salt or a spoon of sugar.

It' s a very healthy diet for kids.I started this food for my son when he was 4months old.I used to give him s brekfast and as dinner.Initially kids may not like it but gradully they will like it.
Do not worry about ur baby whether she is lean but she should not be under weight.If she is active that should be ok.

Hi Moon
I read that you are feeding your baby ragi with milk in the monring. i wanted to know- someone told me that ragi generates alot of heat in the body. Is this true? Can we give in summer time ?

RE:Breakfast options for 2 year old
It is very difficult to decide what to make for your kids in the morning. I think you should watch cookery channels as there are some shows specially for kids food and they have some very good ideas for breakfast.... - Nikhil [View Message]
RE:Need suggestions about food to daycare
See no matter what you give him in the tiffin he won't be able to enjoy it as it would be cold and cold food is never tasty. You can do one thing that inquire for tiffin services and have the food delivered in the afternoon.... - Ashna [View Message]

RE:Breakfast options for 2 year old
Try making different things like parathas or oats for them. Some days you can make pancakes or crepes for them too. Bring different cereals for them and see what do they like and would probably continue with it for a long time.... - Hardika [View Message]
RE:Need suggestions about food to daycare
Food is very important for a child's growth and he should be given his meals properly at proper times so why don't you hire a caretaker who will take care of your kid and also can cook meals for him instead of sending him to a daycare.... - Ashna [View Message]
