Food Ideas for 12 Month+ Babies:-

Family food

Try to plan family meals so your baby can eat what you are eating but don’t give him/her sugary foods or processed food that may contain too much salt – if you use salt in cooking, set aside a salt-free portion for your baby before adding it. Around now you can give your baby his own spoon at mealtimes, so he can make his first attempts at self-feeding (though don’t expect him to get much in there himself!) while you feed him.


Ideal foods

  • Scrambled or chopped hard-boiled whole eggs

  • Sliced fruit, mango, melon, banana slices, apple, guava

  • Cooked carrot slice, green beans, cauliflower florets, baby corn, peas, pumpkin,potato sautéed in little ghee/butter

  • Well cooked boneless chicken pieces

  • Well cooked boneless fish pieces- ensure that bones are carefully removed to avoid choking

  • Cucumber peeled and sliced / cubed

  • Tomato wedges

  • Peanut butter on toast

  • Ghee Chapati cut into bite size

  • Mini idlis / Idlis cut into quarters

  • Mini ragicheela / dosa

  • Mini moong dal cheela / Big cheela cut into pieces


How often

Four times a day plus snacks, with a minimum of 350-400ml/12 ounces of breast or formula milk. You can start to offer larger meals as your baby gets on the move and needs more calories for energy.
