Consumption Of Sapodilla Fruit For Children Under 1 Year?
Hello, I want to ask Can children under the age of 1 eat SAWOTRIMAKASIH fruit.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
What is your child's exact age?
Complementary feeding (MPASI) is needed when the child enters 6 months. After 6 months of age, ASI can not be the only source of nutrition to meet the energy and nutritional needs of children. Therefore, MPASI can be given if your child is over the age of 6 months.
There is no standard sequence in giving MPASI. Since the age of 6 months, children can be given food sources of carbohydrates, protein (chicken, meat, eggs, fish), vegetables, and fruits, including sapodilla. Even so, it must be understood that MPASI is recommended to be introduced in the form of mashed foods with a smooth, consistency consistency first, then the food texture is gradually increased.
In introducing fruit to babies, it is recommended to give it in the form of cut fruit compared to juice. Fruit juice usually contains sugar in sufficient quantities so that it can cause children to be full and not appetite when the meal arrives. Introducing new types of food, including fruit, also takes time. Try to introduce new types of food 10-15 times before the child wants to eat them.
Do not hesitate to consult with a pediatrician about giving MPASI to infants. To enrich insight, you can read articles about giving MPASI to babies.
