  1. Hi Umaa and thank you for your consultation.At 8 months if age baby would be moving from purreed food to mashed foods.At this age baby should be given at least 3 meals a day along with breast milk/formula milk.Start day with breast milk/formula feed. In breakfast give porridge along with apple mashed.Mid morning give breastfeed/formula feed. In lunch potato mashed with mashed khichdi may be given.Breast milk at tea time. In night suji kheer or suji halwa may be given.Bed time breast milk.The exact amount cannot be decided since it varies in every child.Try to ensure baby takes a grain,fruits,veggies and a protein daily.Monitor baby's growth and activity.I hope this helps.Take care and best wishes!
