Around 9 months, many babies become more selective eaters during weaning, the process of introducing solid foods alongside breast milk or formula. Now the mom’s job is to cater to their interest and also make sure that all other foods also go into their little tummies to provide all the nutrition required for their growth. Here we present 9 MONTHS INDIAN BABY FOOD CHART with Recipe Videos for you to be able to cater to those needs with ease.

9 Months Baby Food Chart and Meal Plan

If you have a fussy eater, find out his interest, include other varieties in it and prepare food accordingly. Try, Try, Try… as I-M-POSSIBLE.

Breast milk remains the most important source of nutrition for your baby throughout the first year.

Quantity of Food to be given to 9 months old

The amount of food varies depending on your 9-month-old’s appetite. Start with a small amount (around ½ cup) and increase gradually as their hunger cues indicate. You can offer 2 meals & 2 snacks for 9 month baby, along with breastfeeding and/or formula milk. You may decide the timings for meal & snack as per your convenience.

Things you should keep in mind

Add Dry Fruits Powder or Nuts Powder to any recipe to make it more nutritious.

Note :

• These are ideas of Foods which can be given to 9 months baby.

• You may include 6 Months Baby Food Chart, 7 Months Baby Food Chart, 8 Months Baby Food Chart recipes also.

• You can introduce or repeat any food as per your choice and baby’s liking.

3 days rule doesn’t hold good anymore and hence new food every day is followed in the meal plan for 6 months baby as well.

It is good to introduce varieties of Flavors and Foods to babies before a year to avoid any allergic issues in the future.

Most importantly babies need different tastes and textures daily, just like us so do not bore them with repetitions and make them hate food.
