Key Messages
  • Good nutritious diet in the first two years of your child's life is crucial for the child's optimal physical and mental development.

  • It is important that you feed your child frequently to meet all her/his growth needs. A 6-8 month old infant needs to eat 2 to 3 times per day, and 4 to 5 times per day after that in addition to breastmilk.

  • Feed your child a wide variety of foods including family foods from a separate bowl or plate. Give the child foods such as rice, chapatti, vegetables (mashed or cooked), yellow fruits, pulses, milk products, chopped meat, eggs and fish along with breastmilk.
Discussions and Frequently Asked Questions

 How should children be fed?

Key Response: Children should be fed with love, care and patience. Ensure clean utensils are used. Feed mashed and semi-solid foods, beginning at 6 months of age. Introduce "finger foods" (snacks that can be eaten by children alone) beginning around 8 months of age.


 At what age and how often should a child be fed?

Key Response: Increase feeding frequency as the child ages:
  • Feed 6–8 month old infants complementary foods 2–3 times per day
  • Feed 9–24 month old infants complementary foods 4–5 times per day
  • Gradually increase food consistency and variety as the child ages, adapting the diet to the infant's requirements and abilities
 If the child is no longer breast feeding, should they still get milk?

Key Response: If the child is no longer breastfeeding, give an additional 1 –2 bowls of milk per day.


 When can family foods be given to the child?

Key Response: Make the transition to the family diet at about 12 months of age.
