By 11 months, your baby may become more independent and she may be able to eat or drink on her own. Keep watching the baby close while she is eating in order to avoid choking. Don’t worry if the baby is not ready to eat on her own! Just help and encourage by offering finger foods and practice her to hold the spoon!
Now you can give all foods you cook for your family in the form of minced or chopped (with few exceptions which includes salt, sugar, honey, whole nuts and cow’s milk).
Always remember that solids food can’t replace the nutrients breastmilk or formula provides during the first year. So consider including solids in your baby’s diet as a complementary feeding. Please read on 10 months baby food chart (to cross check the foods you have introduced till 10 months) before you plan a food chart for your 11 months baby. And always consider preferring homemade foods for your baby, which is safe.
And Hopefully by now you are planning for your baby’s first birthday which is certainly something to celebrate! Check some dessert recipes here which you may want to consider before planning the party menu.
