Brief Answer: listed Detailed Answer: Hi, For your 1 year old child, You can give he following other than what you give. Dhal mixed with rice and little butter one a day. XXXXXXX and banana once a day are good. You can give egg white everyday start with an small quantity to look for allergy. Egg yolk twice a week. Vegetable soup once a day alternating with mashed vegetables. Raging if available in your place can bed given twice a week. Bournvita is only for flavour - plain milk is good enough. Naturally when you give solids the intake of milk will reduce Half a litre or so is OK when you give the above. You did not mention birth weight and present weight to assess whether he needs more! Good luck Dr Uma
