By Teddyy 6 Mar 2024

Hey there, super mom! Congratulations on making it through 6 months of sleepless nights, breastfeeding problems and dirty diapers! Now that your munchkin is entering the 7th month, we’re here to answer your big question: “How do I introduce my baby to solids?”

Babies and food – it’s a pairing that can be both heartwarmingly cute and hilariously messy! And it can be all the more confusing initially. So, here are some 7 month baby food recipes for Indian babies that will help you keep your little one’s tummy satisfied and healthy. But before that, here’s a quick look at the 7 month baby diet chart.

Month by month, your baby starts to interact with their surroundings. You don’t just watch them sleep cutely anymore! You also get to hear them sweetly giggling at their toys a little more, watch them reach out to you, and try to move towards you.

With such increased activity, they need proper nutrition and energy. This is why it becomes important to introduce complementary food along with breastfeeding.

So, what exactly is proper nutrition? It’s a blend of proteins, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, fibre, and other microelements.

We know your next questions!

Is there a recipe that balances all requirements?” 

What do I do if my baby gets gassy with the introduction of solids?”

Well, the answer to the first question is NO! There is no single recipe to balance a 7 month baby diet chart needs. That is why we combine multiple baby food recipes your little bundle of joy can enjoy.

And don’t worry if your munchkin has gas problems. It’s quite natural. Help them feel better by following this guide.

6 Nutritional 7 Month Baby Food Recipes

Now, let’s see some of the 7 month baby food recipes Indian grandparents and paediatricians swear by!

1. Cereals

Cereals such as rice, barley, and oats are great sources of carbohydrates and proteins for your 7-month-old. Start with feeding 1-2 tablespoons of cereal mixed with breastmilk. Gradually, you can increase the quantity and thickness.

2. Cooked/Mashed Fruits

Fruits can be a natural addition to your baby’s diet. You can boil a banana, a papaya, or a sapota and mash it until there are no lumps. You can now let your little one create their art masterpieces with these mashed fruits while trying to feed them!

3. Rice Khichdi

Rice Khichdi is another important part of your 7 month baby diet chart. This dish not only satisfies their tummy but also provides essential nutrients for their growth.

  • To make rice khichdi, take 1 tablespoon of rice and moong dal each.
  • Soak them in hot water for 30 minutes.
  • Then, transfer them to a pressure cooker, add a cup of water, salt as per taste and a pinch of turmeric.
  • Cook until 3 whistles.

Once the dish is ready, you can add warm water if necessary to adjust the consistency. Good luck with your Mission Khichdi Khilao!

4. Cooked Veggies

Similar to cooked and mashed fruits, you can boil and mash vegetables such as carrots and potatoes. Ensure there are no lumps in it before feeding it to your baby.

5. Lentils

Try feeding your baby split lentils, such as moong, masoor, and chana. Lentils are packed with essential minerals. You can introduce these by adding them to Khichdi and soups after soaking them for around 30 minutes.

6. Liquids Other Than Milk

You can also introduce your 7-month-old to other liquids, such as fruit juices, vegetable soups, and smoothies. However, ensure that the consistency is not too thin. Check with your paediatrician before introducing your baby to other liquids.

Quick Tip: While you can choose from any of these baby food recipes, ensure that the consistency is not too thin. The food should drip slowly from the spoon. It should NOT flow down.

The Bottom Line

With your 7-month-old now trying to crawl to you almost always, your responsibilities seem to have increased manifold. And you take on all these irrespective of your troubles, so MAA TUJHE SALAAM!
