. BEST FOOD FOR BABIES IS HOME MADE FRESHLY PREPARED FOOD THAT U AND UR FOREFATHERS HAVE BEEN EATING. stored and tin-packed food or preservative added food should not be given. home made food can be given any TASTE ur baby may like, and go for TASTE-CHANGE by adding TASTE-MAKERS, condiments,CHAT-MASALAS,LIME, BLACK SALT, CURD , CHUTNEYS ETC. first u taste than ur baby, if u like it mostly ur baby will. SECONDLY dont feed ur child till u r satisfied, but till ur child is satisfied and that may not be satisfactory to u ( weigh ur child regularly and target 50th persentile of ur country's standard) i think that would suffice, ofcourse it will take time.
