Recommended Complementary Food For Infants Aged 5-12 Months
As baby grows up, the nutrition provided by milk is not enough. The ingredients and antibodies contained in breast milk are only enough to supply the nutrients needed by the baby before 6 months.
So when breast milk or formula can no longer meet the baby’s nutritional needs, when the baby reaches out for food when adults eat, it means that the baby’s hand and eye coordination ability and mouth muscles are mature and ready to try foods.
General recommendation: avoid providing supplementary food before 4 months (because premature feeding will increase the probability of food allergy), but do not exceed 6 months at the latest.
In addition to providing more nutrients for the baby’s growth, another purpose of supplementary food is to prepare for weaning. The baby’s first bite is often a milestone!
The baby auxiliary food stage is divided into three stages: early stage of 4-6months / middle stage of 7-9months / late stage of 10-12months
