Quantity of Food to be given to a 7 months old

It is all about introducing different tastes, flavors & textures rather than the quantity of food. Keep introducing new foods, you must go back to the earlier food you gave him. This helps your baby to develop a taste for the food. The quantity depends on the liking of the baby. Start with 1/4th cup gradually increasing to 1/2 cup. Do not force feed the baby.

A feed of 2 times a day is usually recommended along with the breast feed and / or formula milk.

Things you should keep in mind

  • Thick consistency food
  • Introduce different taste, flavor & texture food
