Indian Baby Food chart for 6-8 Months

In case you are just starting your baby onto solid foods, you should start you baby on pureed and liquid food. It will be similar to what we discussed in previous section.


What to Feed :

  • BreastMilk or Formula
  • Dal water, Rice water, Diluted Rice cereal, mashed banana diluted with baby’s milk, cooked and thinly pureed fruits and vegetable. Pass the cooked fruits and vegetables through a strainer, so that there are no lumps.


New Introduction :

  • Gradually thicken the purees a bit. Pass the cooked fruits and vegetables through a strainer, so that there are no lumps. You can gradually introduce lumpier , mashed food as well as combination foods.
  • Puree two vegetables or fruits together. E.g. Apple and pear– cooked and pureed together, Carrot with potato etc.
  • Khichdi,  different legumes like kidney beans, grams, black gram, chickpeas
  • Dairy – Full fat Curd or Yogurt, cheese, paneer
  • Tofu


See recipes suitable for this age-group.



What not to Feed :

  • Chunky food – your baby does not have enough teeth, if at all, to chew chunky food and can choke upon them.
  • Low fat curd – You may swear by that slim yogurt, but do not try to share it with your baby. Babies need fat at this age for proper development of brain, so give wholemilk yogurt or curd, preferably homemade.

P.S. Check with your paediatrician before introducing eggs , fish or meat to your baby’s diet. Whenever you introduce combination foods, ensure that individual items have been safely introduced first. It means that if you want to give carrot and pumpkin soup, both carrot and pumpkin should have been introduced first without any issues.

      You may give yolk to her. If she takes it well, introduce egg white around 12 months of age.

      Hello Sravani,
      Your baby will soon start solids, which might help. Also, do not reduce the breastfeed or formula once he starts solids. Do discuss this with baby’s doctor. Babies usually double their birth weight in the first 6 months. If he has done that, then there might not be anything to worry.
