Baby Food – Age Group of 12 months and above!

By 12 months of age, your baby has turned into a toddler and should be given small amounts of nutritious baby food items at regular intervals throughout the day. Toddlers have small stomach and appetites, so required small and regular meals.

  • Offer your kid three meals and one or two snacks every day.
  • Baby can now be offered changed form of family foods and meals.
  • Avoid foods that may cause choking.
  • Breastfeeding can be continued for as long as both you and your baby want but baby should not need to be breastfed overnight.

After one year of age your toddler can be given cow’s milk (full cream) as his/her main drink. Too much milk can fill toddlers up and make your baby less hungry for solid food. The best drinks for toddlers are breast milk, cow’s milk and plain water.

Avoid cordial and sweetened drinks. Prefer to give your toddler to eat fruit rather than drink juice. In case of juice, limit the amount up to half a cup of diluted juice (1 part juice to 3 parts water). Large amounts of fruit juice can cause tooth decay and lead to diarrhea.

Toddlers have huge variations in the quantity of food they are required to eat from day to day. It is normal as toddler’s appetite vary from day to day and meal to meal with small tummies and appetites.

Never force your baby because children by this time are good at knowing when they are hungry and when they are full.
