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.
