  • Offer new foods when they are hungry, particularly after their sleep or playtime.

  • There is still a chance to offer foods which they have refused before.

  • Introduce foods that are nutrient-dense and semi-solid in consistency. Fruits and vegetables can just be mashed with hand or spoon. If they find swallowing difficult, use a blender to puree the food. It does not require straining unless the food is fibrous.

Remember that solids foods however can't replace mother's milk during the first year of their life.
