Baby's Diet After One Year

After the child is a year old, you should gradually let the child start getting used to foods made for the family, in terms of taste as well as consistency. 


  • Start giving cow or buffalo's milk from a glass 2-3 times a day. 
  • If the child does not like milk, milk preparations like fruit salad in milk, curds and cheese should be given.


  • Inexpensive seasonal fruits should be given in abundance.
  • Whenever possible, avoid peeling the fruit's skin.  Fruit skins are rich in vitamins and minerals
  • Encourage the child to have fresh fruit juices, but avoid sweetening it with sugar.
  • Avoid canned fruits and fruit juices; they have excessive sugar and contain preservatives.

Rice and Chapati

  • Chapatis should be made from whole wheat.  (Do not throw away the bran). 
  • Polished rice is not as healthy as unpolished or par-boiled rice.


  • Green, orange, red and yellow vegetables are essential.  Scrape vegetables like potatoes instead of peeling them. 
  • Use the water in which rice or vegetables have been boiled; it contains essential vitamins and minerals.
  • Do not overcook vegetables.  If you want to make the vegetables soft, gently mash them with a spoon. 

Dals, Eggs and other high protein foods

  • Make sure foods high in protein (such as pulses or dals, gram, peanuts, peas, beans, eggs, fish, mutton, liver) are given. 
  • Sprouted gram or moong is very nutritious. 

Chocolates, cold drinks, coffee, etc

  • Chocolates, cold drinks, flavoring agents, tea, coffee, etc. should be avoided as far as possible because they contain chemicals and caffeine that can be harmful to the child. 
  • These filler foods can also ruin the child's appetite for nutritious meals.
