7 Months Baby Food Chart for Indian Infant

Your baby at seven months of age understands a few basic gestures and emotions and is starting to crawl. It's also a sheer delight to watch your little one enjoying his/her first foods!

7 Months Baby Food Chart for Indian 01

 

During the 6th month, your baby was restricted to eating only two to three meals a day. However, now that he/she has grown up by a month, it’s the right time to introduce 'proper' solid meals, we'd say three to four times a day. Providing the right kind of nourishment is every mother’s objective and that is why we have introduced a variety of “old but gold” supergrains in your little ones' meal plans.

At 6 months, we recommended you should introduce limited flavours in their first-foods as a part of their daily and weekly diet plans. Now, that the lil munchkin is 7 months old, let’s introduce a variety of flavors and textures. 

Have a look at the following weekly - 7 months baby food charts which will surely help you! We are also sharing our 'foods to introduce at 6 months' here because some old foods are also being included in our 7-months weekly food charts., e.g. ragi (millets)
