The baby is weaned, what kind of food should baby eat?
Because the vitamin D content in breast milk is insufficient, it is recommended to supplement vitamin D from the beginning of the baby's birth. Regardless of the stage of the baby's milk exchange, parents should conform to the baby's growth and development needs, and make targeted adjustments and supplements in accordance with the nutrients required by the infants and young children at different stages. The American Academy of Pediatrics believes that breast milk is the best source of nutrition for infants within one year of age, and recommends exclusive breastfeeding for at least 6 months. The baby's need for iron and zinc will increase after 6 months. Breast milk alone cannot meet the baby's nutritional needs for rapid growth and development. According to estimates, for 7-12 months old babies who continue to breastfeed, 99% of iron, 75% of zinc, 80% of vitamin B6, and 50% of vitamin C must come from complementary foods. Therefore, babies can supplement iron by eating iron-containing supplements such as rice noodles, cereals, meat, green vegetables, etc., and obtain rich calcium and protein from breast milk or formula milk powder. For infants and young children, after weaning, the baby must also ensure the intake of calcium. The calcium content in dairy products is rich and well absorbed, so you can drink formula milk powder for your baby. Other complementary foods need to be broken and steamed before they can be eaten by the baby. It is very convenient to have a baby food maker!
