Babies make the home lively. As they grow up their activity and notorious behaviour increases, and to balance all this, they should have a balanced diet. Till the age of 6 months, it is advisable to restrict their food intake only to breast milk, but as they grow up, they are advised to give other food supplements to nourish them and help to grow healthier and faster. Mostly, mothers are anxious as to what to feed their babies, everyone has a different opinion, it is best that you seek suggestions from your child’s paediatrician, because every child is different and what suited  one, may not necessarily suit another child as well.
