Hello Yani, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
MPASI can be started with instant milk porridge such as Cerelac. In making milk porridge, you can use breast milk or formula milk, you can also use boiled and clean water. However, the use of breastmilk or formula milk that is usually drunk by babies is recommended because it makes the taste of milk porridge more familiar on the baby's tongue (makes it easier for babies to accept food) and breast milk and formula itself can add nutritional value in the food eaten by babies.
However, it is better if your baby is not continuously given milk porridge as complementary foods. Babies should be introduced to various types of food as early as possible. You can introduce a single menu for your baby in advance in the first 2 weeks.
The single menu given to babies can be in the form of carbohydrates such as rice and mashed potatoes, fruits such as avocado, banana, steamed apple, steamed pear, or vegetables such as steamed carrots, steamed sweet potatoes, steamed pumpkin, and others. You can also include the provision of animal protein in a single menu such as chicken. We recommend that 1 single menu type be given for 3 consecutive days to see the possibility of allergies to these types of food.
After 2 weeks of introduction to complementary foods, you can start a 4 star menu for your baby. A 4 star menu means a menu that contains carbohydrates, animal protein, vegetable protein, and vegetables. Providing a variety of foods is very important for babies to ensure that the baby's nutrition is fulfilled.
