Food of children of the first year of life (part 2) of

the Beginning


is Gradually added...

It is unconditional, breast milk - ideal food for the small child, but the kid grows, gradually turning from a small helpless crumb into a strong karapuzik, and gradually it needs to be transferred from breast milk on a table d`hote by one year. How to reach it?

  1. the First “alien“ product which your kid has to try fruit juice will be p>

    . Begin to accustom to it the child approximately with 3 - x months (usually in our climatic strip begin with apple). The first time give several droplets, having tracked surely its reaction: if on skin allergic rash does not develop, and the chair will be usual, then next day it is possible to give 1/2 a juice teaspoon, on the third - 1 h l. etc., gradually increasing up to 30 ml a day.
    How many juice in day it is possible to give?
    Formula very simple: we multiply the number of the months executed to the child on 10 (for example, 5 - ti the monthly child in day can give about 50 ml of juice). Offer it in intervals between feedings.

  2. the Second new product which should be offered the kid in 2 - 3 weeks from juice introduction (begin with those fruit which have soft coloring and seldom cause allergic reactions, for example, green grades of apples, bananas etc.) Now very wide choice of baby food of industrial production - try everything gradually. In 3 months the kid can eat 5 - 10 g of fruit puree a day, in 6 months 50 - 60 g, and age of one year 90 - 100 g
    It should be noted that fruit puree as well as juice, does not enter the main volume of food therefore it is possible to give it between feedings.
  3. Further very important change will happen - one of feedings should be replaced with a breast with vegetable puree approximately in 4,5 - 5 months. It is worth cooking vegetables on water, slightly adding some salt to them and adding several drops of vegetable oil. It is worth beginning with the easily digested vegetables - pumpkin, a vegetable marrow, carrots, a cauliflower, potato, and then - beet, cabbage etc. The same principle of “gradual introduction“ works - at first you give to the kid of 1 h l. vegetable puree, then you finish feeding a breast. Next day - 2 h l., then you finish feeding a breast. For the third day - 3 - 4 h l. etc. Thus, one of chest feedings will be forced out by vegetable.
    B of 4 - 5 months can give to the child cottage cheese of 10 - 20 g a day. It is possible to train him independently from kefir. It is necessary to heat kefir on a water bath and when it stvorozhitsya to filter through a sterile gauze - the most delicate cottage cheese which can be offered the child together with fruit puree will turn out.
  4. at the age of 5 - 5,5 months when the child finally gets used to vegetables, you can accustom him to porridge in the same way. It is possible to use dry porridges which get divorced just before the use, it is possible to cook on cow`s milk of low fat content (2,5 - 3,2%). If the kid has an allergy to protein of cow`s milk, it is possible to cook on goat or on water. At first within one week porridge should accustom the child to 5%, (that is on a glass of milk you add 2 h l. grain), and then, at good tolerance, it is possible to pass also to 10% (on a glass of milk 4 of h l. grain). You cook porridge as well as yourself - add 1 h l. sugar (it is possible honey or fruit broth, fructose), add in 1 minute prior to readiness 3 - 5 g of butter that it managed to prokipet.
    What grain are suitable for children of the first year of life? oat-flakes, then rice and buckwheat are considered
    of the easiest. More senior can offer porridge from cornmeal. Small children should not cook cream of wheat - despite its high caloric content, it does not contain vitamins and mineral substances, is more often than others causes allergic reactions.
  5. In 6 months can begin to give to the child a chicken yolk, since 1/4 2 times in a week. It can or be added to vegetables, or to part with breast milk.
  6. Meat to the child is entered by
  7. into a diet in 6 - 7 months, it mixes up with vegetable puree. Begin with 5 - 10 g a day, gradually bringing to 60 - 70 g a day a year. It is useful to give low-fat pork, a rabbit, a turkey, chicken (if there is no allergy), beef. It is possible to use ready mashed potatoes, and it is possible to cook meat, then scrolling it via the meat grinder 3 times.
    So, food 6 - ti the monthly kid essentially differs from food of the newborn. Here the approximate menu 6 - 7 - mi the monthly child: of
    6. 00 - breast milk
    of 10. 00 - milk porridge of 150 g
    cottage cheese of 10 - 20 g
    fruit puree 30 - 50 g
    of 14. 00 - breast milk
    of 15. 00 - vegetable puree of 150 g
    meat of 10 g
    juice of 60 ml (or 2 times a day on 30 ml)
    of 22. 00 - breast milk
  8. Further, in 7 - 8 months, breast milk also gradually should replace one more feeding with feeding with kefir or other fermented milk products. If the child already has teeth, it is possible to offer him to kefir crouton, unsweetened a pechenyitsa.
  9. 8 - mi the monthly kid can enter gradually low-fat meat broth, adding it to vegetables (soup turns out).
    At this age feeding by vegetables with meat + broth can be postponed to lunch hours, and to offer kefir with pecheniyets on penultimate feeding as an afternoon snack. The approximate menu 8 - the 9th monthly kid: of
    6. 00 - breast milk
    of 10. 00 - porridge of 150 - 200
    cottage cheese of 30 - 40 g
    juice of 50 ml
    of 14. 00 - vegetable puree 120 - 150 g
    meat of 30 - 40 g
    broth of 20 - 30 g
    juice of 40 ml
    of 18. 00 - kefir of 200 ml
    cookies 5 - 10 g
    of 22. 00 - breast milk
  10. Fish - it can replace with
  11. meat of 1 - 2 time a week, since 10 - ti monthly age. Choose grades which contain a minimum of bones, carefully train her.
    at the age of 9 - 12 months breast milk can be replaced gradually on cow (or goat if the child has an intolerance of proteins of cow`s milk).

Thus, within a year you gradually teach the kid to eat almost the same, as adults.
