Not just for the grown-ups, these Indian baby food recipes are nutritious and introduce your baby to some delightful new flavours.
Contrary to popular belief, Indian food does not have to be “hot” – many spices used are simply aromatic and delicious, and babies love them!
Like many of us, I have always enjoyed Indian food and ate it often whilst pregnant and when breastfeeding. Perhaps this is why our children have all taken readily to more exotic recipes!
We recommend introducing these recipes from around 7-8 months (for older babies, visit Indian baby food recipes for your 10-12 month baby) , but use your discretion – if you feel your baby has a “sensitive tummy”, then you may wish to wait a little longer.
See the allergies page for more information about food sensitivity.
And always remember to apply the four day rule when introducing any new food to your baby.
Note: These recipes are best suited to babies capable of chewing small lumps.
Have fun preparing these Indian baby food recipes and serving them to your little one –
by introducing him to a wider variety of flavours now, you are developing his palate and preventing “fussy feeding” later on.
