Introducing new food items in the baby’s menu is a herculean task. They are highly active, so they need high energy food but to make them eat is never easy. It is important that we first choose the foods we need to introduce and then think of innovative ways to make it palatable. Some babies are fussier than others. In such cases, apart from the taste, the food has to look impressive to the little eyes to compel them to eat. Until the end of the first year, doctors recommend mother’s milk, but after the first 6 months, solid foods can be slowly introduced. This is really challenging and every mum has a different ‘meal tale’ to share. So if you are looking at foods that will help your baby gain weight better and also provide energy through the day then read on to know about some high calorie baby foods that will be good for your little one and are easy to make.
Let’s look at the high energy foods that your growing baby needs:
Solid foods can be introduced to supplement mother’s milk as the baby starts growing and requires additional energy. But make sure you don’t go overboard in your enthusiasm. Introduce one food at a time and notice how your baby’s body reacts to it. Wait for a minimum of 3 days before you add another new item to the menu or substitute the existing item with a new one. Giving high calorie food to babies will ensure that he gains weight as required. Talk to your doctor to know how much weight gain is good for your baby and also if any food needs to be avoided. Browse for recipes and make meal times interesting and fun. Cook, serve and watch your baby relish every meal!
