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.

As always, this journey is as much yours as your baby’s, as you whip up delicious recipes that he’ll love, so don’t forget to get creative! For Week three of your 17-month-old’s diet plan, click here.
