Hello Lia Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
MPASI or complementary foods have been given to children aged 6 months. Providing nutritious food to meet the nutritional intake of children is very important for their developmental period. To ensure a balanced nutritional intake, make sure the food groups are given such as fruits, vegetables, rice and high protein foods such as fish, eggs, chicken, beef. If the child refuses to eat one of these foods, you can look for other alternatives as a source of protein.
Carrots are very permitted given to children. In addition to having high fiber, carrots also contain the vitamins that babies need. But variations in food are also needed to meet the nutrients. Apart from being mashed you can also give carrots as 'finger foods', which are foods or vegetables that have been cooked until soft and cut to the size of an adult finger. In addition to other food carrots such as beans, potatoes. Here are more articles that you can read about: Preparing food for babies 8 months and older.
Food variations are highly recommended for infants to fulfill their nutrition, in addition to the variety of foods provided can also prevent babies from becoming bored with one food. But what you need to remember is that MPASI is only companion, the main nutrition is breast milk or formula milk. MPASI children will not replace the nutritional vitamins, proteins and iron contained in breast milk. Therefore, during good development, you do not need to worry about the problem of the baby's lack of food or not because the child does not like some food.
