This is so that according to the child's ability to chew food and readiness of the digestive organs owned by children.
Starting around the age of 9 months can usually be given rice in the form of porridge should be combined with small pieces of vegetables. This is to prevent choking. And can be given snacks in the form of finger food that stimulates motor movements of children.
Stages of good food are started from the fine filter team porridge then begins to increase to a coarse team pulp.
