Wondering how to provide your baby with proper nutrition as you slowly begin introducing solids in his diet? We’ve got you covered with this easy-to-follow, delicious, and healthy diet chart for a 7-month-old baby. Watch this video for a 7-month baby food chart along with feeding tips that ensure you safely introduce new foods to his diet.
At 7 months, your baby will slowly begin to have a few food likes and dislikes as he gets a taste of different fruits, vegetables, pulses, ingredients, and flavours. This is also a huge milestone-filled period as he gears up for teething, sitting up, etc. Hence, it is up to you to ensure he gets enough nutrition for optimal growth and development. This video gives you directions on feeding your baby with a diet chart for a 7-month-old baby, along with feeding tips and disclaimers that allow you to follow the seven-month baby food chart safely.
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.
7. Don’t stop breastfeeding at once. Breastfeed on-demand or in between meals.
8. Offer mashed and pureed food between 6-8 months, slowly progressing to lumpy and finely-chopped food.
9. Offer chopped and finger foods 8 months onwards to encourage self-feeding.
10. Offer regular food with a variety of tastes and textures after 12 months.
11. While preparing the formula, please follow the instructions on the box and use the measuring spoon provided with it.
12. Don’t stop solid foods if your child is suffering from diarrhea.
13. Some kids may eat less on some days, which is alright. However, if your child eats less for more than 3-4 consecutive days, consult your doctor.
14. A child may eat less if he is teething or ill. Increase breast milk /formula feeds on those days and re-introduces solids once the child is back to normal.
