I understand the worry you have. You need to know that complementary foods are complementary foods for breastfeeding which are given to babies no later than 6 months to 2 years or until weaning. This is because babies who are 6 months old, breast milk is not sufficient for their nutritional needs. Based on the Indonesian Pediatrician Association, good complementary foods aim to meet the energy and substance needs of the baby's body, namely macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins, fats) and micronutrients (vitamins and other minerals).
The introduction of complementary foods was carried out in stages. At the beginning of giving good solid complementary foods, it is advisable to give mashed food with a thinner / smoother consistency. Make a regular eating schedule, always pay attention to the cleanliness of the food consumed, pay attention to signs that the child is hungry and don't force children to eat are important things as a basis for children to learn about eating.
Regarding your question, a child will have a tendency to experience allergies if it is known that one or both parents have a history of allergies. Don't hesitate to introduce your child to food as complementary foods. IDAI suggests introducing food between 10 - 15 days with a frequency of eating 2-3 times per day. Food recognition can be done by providing one type of food for consumption. During the food introduction period, parents are required to evaluate the signs of allergies that may occur in children after consuming the food given.
There is no specific order when the initial complementary feeding is done. Foods that contain carbohydrates, are rich in protein, vegetables and fruit can be given from 6 months of age. There are no restrictions on giving fish, chickens, eggs to your children. Try to provide foods that are high in iron, such as red meat and chicken liver, as initial solids for your child. Because the age of 6 months the iron content in the baby's body begins to decrease and iron from animal protein is more easily absorbed than from vegetables. Try to provide rice as the main source of carbohydrates, because rice is the most hypoallergenic food ingredient compared to other carbohydrate sources such as wheat and cereals. If you get complaints during the initial provision of complementary foods, do not hesitate to consult directly to a pediatrician to get more complete and relevant information. I have submitted so much information, hope it helps
