By the second week of the 7th month, your baby will have tasted and enjoyed most ingredients apt for his age. This week is a milestone for him as he can be introduced to some spices, in minimal quantities though. So, when you are preparing the purees, soups or porridges, you may choose to add a tiny amount of salt, sugar or jaggery according to the recipe. Further on, you can also experiment with cooking foods with extremely mild tempering for your little one. Because this menu is new for your baby, he might not like some meal combinations. You need to be patient and try a new combination to ensure he gets the nourishment that he needs. You may continue keeping a record of the foods, and the quantities your baby consumes.
Week 2 of the 7th month is the beginning of a different journey for your child. He is introduced to extremely mild versions of grown-up food. Thus, he may not respond the way he did to all the bland meals you fed him last month. You may track your little one’s response to the meals again and work around the combinations. You may also choose to skip the spices altogether.
