9 Month Baby Food Chart- Easy Home Foods During Quarantine

It's time to welcome the 9th month of motherhood and childhood. How has it been so far? We imagine there is no one word that comes to mind, it must have been quite a roller coaster of emotions and experiences! 

They say the key to getting through this is planning ahead but even this does not always guarantee success. This is a bittersweet truth all of us parents come to terms with at some point. At the moment, however, this feels a bit more bitter than sweet given the curveball of coronavirus and the quarantine situation it has landed us all in. How is one supposed to prepare for a home quarantine? The sheer scramble to plan and prepare has left a lot of us fearing for our sanity.

Check out the 8th-month baby food chart just so you can see what additional food items have we added this month!

As helpless a situation as this might feel, there is always a way out. When it comes to child nutrition, the best way out is going back to basics. Using simple ingredients and simple recipes to make simple, nutritious and easy home food for your child. These are great because A) they are easy to make at home with minimal effort and ingredients and B) due to their easy nature, you can add a variety of seasonings like fruits and honey to keep the taste interesting, ensuring that your child does not get bored. These are easily available at home.

 

This back to basics approach draws from the way our grandparents used to eat: simple home food made with simple and healthy ingredients. This is arguably one of the best ways to keep up your little one’s immunity while quarantined at home. It’s as Michael Pollan said, “ Don’t eat anything your great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food!”
