What diet should I give to my 7-month-old son?
Q: My son is 7 months old. Can we feed him with Threptin biscuits mixed with milk?
A:Seven months is the right age to start semi-solid food for you child. Try to give him home-based foods as far as possible. Some examples are, milk & sooji porridge, mashed daal, khichdi, milk & banana, etc. Biscuits mashed in milk are also ok. Start with one foodstuff & offer every day gradually increasing the amount. Introduce the next new food after a few days. By the year-end, your child should be able to eat everything cooked at home, modified for him i.e. in mashed form.
