1. Each child is different, so follow these meal plans at your discretion. You can modify the meals according to your child’s preferences and requirements.
2. Introduce only one fruit or vegetable to your baby at a time and feed it for at least three days. If there are no signs of an allergy, you can continue the same.
3. If your baby has an allergic reaction, stop that food immediately. In case the allergic reaction persists, consult a paediatrician.
4. If your child has a known food allergy to nuts, gluten, eggs, etc., please consult your doctor before following the suggested diet plan.
5. Do not feed honey to babies under 12 months of age, as it may contain bacterial spores that cause infant botulism.
6. Do not feed cow’s milk to babies under 12 months of age as they may develop lactose-intolerance.
