Providing Coconut Milk For 8 Months Baby MPASI?
Morning … my child is only 8 months old. Can you give coconut milk or not … because my child likes savory food
Hi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Coconut milk is a natural food ingredient that contains fat. The fat content is needed by the human body as a source of energy, gaining weight, helping to absorb vitamins A, D, E and K and others. However, caution needs to be given to the baby. Coconut milk should not be given until the baby is 9 months old. Because at that age (before 9 months), the baby is still in the stage of food recognition, so it is necessary to avoid food ingredients with flavors, such as salt, sugar and coconut milk. It is intended that the baby's tongue is in neutral condition and does not choose food later on the age of the children. In addition, the baby's digestive tract is still in the stage of recognition and adjustment.
Thus hopefully useful.
