Food For 1 Year Old Baby?
Good afternoon. I want to ask if a 1-year-old baby can be given round rice, fried food and seasoned. Thanks for the answer
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
After 1 year of age, babies can normally consume a variety of family foods, including rice, fried foods, or certain spices. It's just that you need to pay attention to the following points:
Give the baby food with a balanced nutritional content, not only rice, but also complete with variations of side dishes, vegetables, fruits, as well as milk
In giving fried food to the baby, you should make sure the oil you use is new, some literature more recommends the use of olive oil (especially the ELOO (Extra Light Olive Oil) or EVOO (Extra VirginOlive Oil) because it is considered healthier and rich in good fat content.
In providing seasonings in cooking, prioritize the use of natural herbs, for example garlic, onion, ginger, pepper, sea salt, and so on. Limit, if necessary avoid, the provision of chemical seasonings, including those containing MSG and preservatives, in processing food for infants.
In between baby meals, you can also give him a variety of healthy snacks, for example cut fruit or non-MSG cookies
Don't make it a habit to give babies instant or preservative food or drinks
Make sure you process baby food in a clean way, if necessary, separate cooking utensils for family food with the baby
Recognize, if there are certain foods or drinks that make your child allergic, avoid giving these foods or drinks if the allergic reaction is severe enough
Teach your baby to eat alone as early as possible, while accompanied by family, so that he feels happy and more independent
Giving food and drinks to babies not only need to pay attention to the nutritional content, but also how to eat. The earlier you teach your baby to eat your own food that you normally eat (of course healthy food), then this will also make it easier for you, and have good eating awareness.
If your baby has problems related to the feeding process or nutritional status, do not hesitate to check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician for further treatment.

I hope this helps.
