yes you can give ,
But my opinion is you can give gradually normal diet;
Biscuits in milk,Mashed banana/potato,Any cereal may be mixed with water or milk,Mashed and boiled Vegetable, Boiled or Half Boiled egg. Custard Jelly. Over Boiled Rice with Dal, Minced Mutton or boiled fish, Bread Or Chapatti Soaked in milk and sugar
Gradually Normal diet should be given .

General Principal:
1.     Since the child moves the tongue as though for sucking, it is but natural that some of the semisolid given will be coming of the mouth. It is not spitting or rejection of food.
2.     Since the baby is used to the taste of milk alone, it is better accepted if the weaning food is mixed with milk.
3.     He should encourage to feed, but should never be forced, as this creates an aversion to feeding.
4.     Give small quantity of food, gradually increased as per demand.
5.     If he rejects any food item, it should be stopped, and may be reintroduce a week or two later.
6.     It is preferable to introduce only one new food a week, so that intolerance can be spotted.

Preparation and Storage of food:
1.     Careful hygienic preparation and storage of weaning food to prevent contamination.
2.     Before preparation and weaning hand should be washed with soap.
3.     Cooking place and utensils must be clean.
4.     The food preferably fresh, cooked or boiled well and if feasible, prepared immediately before the are to be eaten.

NOTE: Sometimes its very difficult to accept new food, so at time try one type of food for several days.

I wish for your child good health
