It is imperative that babies take in solids, but many mothers are vary as to when they could introduce them and what they should start with whilst their baby is growing.
Breast milk should be continued at least till the baby reaches age 01 year and from age 06 months solids could be introduced but in very small quantities.
It would be prudent to select the vegetables that you would like your baby to try and then see any reactions after every feed as their bodies could reject some vegetables for reasons unknown.
Hence introducing a selection of vegetables, one or two at a time would be the most advisable and then monitoring the reactions and going on to other vegetables likewise step by step.
This would allow your baby’s body to adjust gradually to the new feed practice especially because he or she has been on breast milk or in special cases on formula milk.
Fruits too could be introduced one or two at a time and it would be pertinent to introduce as many as you can to ensure they have no allergenic reactions which especially does not occur in general in babies for vegetables and fruits.
Hence there should not be much of a worry on what vegetables and fruits you introduce your baby to, but close monitoring in any case would be advisable.
This would give you an idea even for the future, how your baby has been faring with the foods introduced, it would also be a good idea to keep a record of what you have given your baby during the first two years which would help if the baby has any allergenic reaction in later years.
