Thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com

After the baby enters the age of 6 months, we can introduce solid foods gradually where he will learn about the texture and taste of these foods. The introduction of flavors using added salt or sugar should not be given too early because it can cause children to ask for more flavors of these flavors as adults. Preferably, giving additional flavorings is done after the baby is more than 1 year old. For babies 7 months, here are some tips for giving complementary foods that can help;

Invite children to eat together with other family members at the dinner table because children will tend to follow our way of eating. Start giving complementary foods in small amounts, then increase the portion over time. It's better to give small portions of food but often compared to large portions in less frequency. Avoid forcing the baby to eat because he may be in a period of adjustment. If he refuses to eat, then wait a few moments or a few days to introduce the food back. If the baby wants, don't hesitate to give him the opportunity to eat on his own. Cut the food into finger foods that are the right size. Create an interesting dining atmosphere by listening to music or using colorful tableware. Give natural and healthy food so that the child's nutritional intake is fulfilled. Avoid giving too much juice because it can cause diarrhea. Avoid giving cow's milk and honey to children under 1 year of age. Avoid giving grains so that there is no risk of choking if your child does not gain significant weight. enough or there are problems such as nausea and vomiting that the child does not want to eat, then immediately consult a pediatrician directly.
