Provision Of Chicken Porridge For MPASI 6 Month Old Babies?
6 months my son has been given breast milk but he doesn’t want to eat anything except chicken porridge is it good for your baby’s health?
Thank you for the question.
At the age of more than 6 months, breast milk alone can no longer meet the nutritional needs of infants, so he must begin to be taught to consume variations of food and other drinks (MPASI). There is no real standard in introducing MPASI in infants. In fact, many experts recommend that MPASI be adjusted back to family eating habits. It's just that, it still must be adapted to some signs, such as:
Start MPASI with texture, frequency, and volume of administration that is increased gradually. In the early weeks, it is recommended to give the baby a single MPASI menu, so that mothers can more easily observe if there are certain foods that make babies allergic and should be avoided. Don't be accustomed to giving baby food and instant drinks, let alone preservatives Make sure the MPASI you give to the baby is processed with a clean and mature Do not use salt, sugar, and excessive flavoring in the early introduction of baby MPASI Keep giving enough milk according to the wishes of the baby until the age of 2 years, or more With regard to your question, it is okay to give chicken porridge as a baby food menu. However, as mentioned above, you need to make sure that the chicken porridge is not processed with too much salt or flavoring. Also make sure the chicken in the porridge is cut into small pieces or mashed so that the baby is easier to swallow and does not choke.
That's all our explanation. Furthermore, please consult directly with your doctor or pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
