Extra Fat MPASI For Babies Aged 7 Months?
Good day doctor, my child is 7 months and 1 week old, good and safe additional fat for MPASI for babies. 7 months, what brand is that?
Thank you for the question.
A 7 month old baby needs a balanced nutritional intake to support his growth and development. Not only fat, other nutrients, such as protein, carbohydrates, fiber, water, vitamins, and minerals that you also need to serve enough in every food and drink that he consumes.
Adequate fat intake for infants is important for making the baby's body weight more optimal, supporting the development of the brain and nervous system, as well as the main energy producing fuel. Not only that, fat is also useful in facilitating the absorption of several types of fat-soluble vitamins.
Giving fat to baby foods can be done by giving him various types of processed meat, poultry, eggs, fish, seeds, and also breast milk. In addition to fat in staple foods, additional fat, such as in oils used when cooking (for example soybean oil, olive oil, coconut oil), margarine, butter, and ghee are also good to meet the needs of baby fat. Later, when your baby is 1 year old, you can also give him extra milk or processed products (such as cheese, yogurt) as a complement to the adequacy of fat.
Regarding brands, in a free forum like this, it is unethical if we advise you on certain brands of food products for you. You can consult this matter directly with your nearest doctor or pediatrician so that it is adjusted to the health condition of your baby.
I hope this helps.
