Also any tips in adapting our adult foods to baby's taste ( how to make it less spicy, what to avoid etc). My baby likes the taste of adult food but does not like the solid texture yet. He prefers items pureed so how do I get away from this ?
    I dont know whether my cooking is bad but he just wont have the boiled vegetables and rice anymore :) He is okay with sweet stuff like fruits, prunes etc
    Also is not jaggery a form of sugar ? Is it okay to give to a 8 month old ?
    Hi Dallas,

    Onion is very much ok. In fact it has medicinal qualities that can ward off cold and cough, esp if you have white onion available.

    You might find the below excerpt from the following link interesting - When can Baby Have Spices? Spices for Baby in Food, Spice Up Homemade Baby Food and Learn What Spices to Add to Homemade Baby Food



    Spices that can be added -
    <LI class=style5>pepper <LI class=style5>garlic powder <LI class=style5>basil <LI class=style5>rosemary <LI class=style5>dill <LI class=style5>oregano <LI class=style5>lemon zest <LI class=style5>ginger <LI class=style5>cinnamon <LI class=style5>mint <LI class=style5>nutmeg <LI class=style5>anise curry powder (yes, it's true, you may offer your older infant a wee dash of curry powder in her foods. You do need to watch for any reactions as some components of curry or even chili powder may give baby a rash)


    When Can I Add Spices to Baby's Food?

    A majority of pediatricians will recommend waiting until an infant is 8 months or older to introduce spices. This recommendation often has more to do with staving off digestive upsets than it does with possible allergic reactions. Like any other new food, please follow the "4 day wait rule" when introducing spices!
    As always, please discuss the introduction and use of herbs and spices with your baby's pediatrician!
    Spiced Up Baby Food Creations
    Try these spicy mixtures and put some baby zing into those everyday foods for baby:
    Apple(Sauce) with cinnamon
    Pears with Ginger and a drip of vanilla
    Bananas with ginger
    Plain Yogurt with mint
    Sweet potato with nutmeg, cinnamon and/or cardamom
    Pumpkin with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and dash of vanilla
    Chicken with cinnamon and/or coriander
    Chicken with garlic powder and basil
    Carrots with basil & garlic - baked cinnamon carrots are yummy too!
    Green beans with garlic powder
    Mashed potatoes(white) with dill weed or garlic
    Pasta with wee dab of butter and oregano and/or basil
    Oatmeal or other cereals with fruits and cinnamon & nutmeg, dash of vanilla
    Rice Pudding/Custards with cinnamon, nutmeg, dash of vanilla, cardamom, ginger
    Spices may offer additional benefits other than changing a boring food into a new experience. Did you know that herbalists tout the following spices for their benefits.
    • <LI class=style5>Ginger - good for tummy upsets <LI class=style5>Cinnamon - good for tummy upsets, diarrhea, possible anti-fungal and anti-bacterial <LI class=style5>Garlic - anti-biotic, blood pressure <LI class=style5>Coriander - aids gassiness, stimulates appetite, helps rheumatisms and joint pain <LI class=style5>Dill - hiccups, colic, digestive troubles
    • Mint - stimulates healthy digestion, helps respiratory issues
    Break out the spices and introduce your baby to the wonderful world of healthy flavour!

But iam not satisfyed with this. Pls suggest me any other good healthy food which i can prepare or get here in shops (US).

    As there are no elders here at home, iam really worried. pls advice.

    Suvidhya - How about fruit/veggie purees? Bananas/apples are a good way to start. Also sweet potatoes/avocados. Also have a look at all the recipes in this thread for ideas.

    Hi suvidhya,
    Giving rasam with little tomato is fine.I hope your are not thinking to feed him tomato by itself as it is not a very good idea.You can try vegetable purees like sweet patotoes,green beans,squash,peas etc..,
    Try one at time to check for allerygies .You can get more info in the link below
