Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
You can continue khichidi with boiled and mashed vegetables.
As your child is liking soy formula, I advise you to continue the same.
You can give banana, but don't give cow milk at present as it may lead to loose stools, colic, and indigestion.
You can introdue raggi, but give in small quantity initially and gradually increase day by day.
Any new food can be started with little quanity, observe for any reactions and if child tolerates you can increase it gradually.
Introduce only one new food at a time only.
His weight is good.
Hope I have answered your query.
