Diet Plan for 17 Month 2 Week Old Toddler

17 Month 2 Week Old Baby Food Chart

Last Updated on



Introduction:





We hope your baby had a smooth transition into his 17th month diet last week. This week, its time to introduce him to more foods that’ll have him explore different flavours and textures. It’s important to remember that at 17 months, there’s a lot going on in your baby’s life, such as teething, separation anxiety, etc., which can affect his sleeping and eating habits. If there are certain foods that he doesn’t enjoy, don’t worry. You can always substitute ingredients for now, and re-introduce the same food at a later stage. Right now, the focus is to allow your little one to explore the world of flavours, and have fun eating the dishes you lovingly prepare for him. Let’s look at week two of the diet plan for your 17-month-old baby.
