Infant Feeding: In addition to breast milk/ formula, complementary food started at 4-6 mo. Until 6 mo, proteins are avoided. An 8 month old can have pureed food like mixed vegetables, fruits, cereals, meat(strained meat/soup), and finally egg yolk- then egg white around 1 yr. Zwieback, graham crackers and other hand held food can be given also. One new food at a time in 3-4 days interval to detect any allergy.
