Before any mom once there is a question of need of introduction to a diet of the child of qualitatively new products. And if earlier councils of doctors came down to early introduction of a yolk and apple juice, then their recommendation opposite now.
There are certain rules of introduction of a feeding up - qualitatively new food in the child's diet. Ways of introduction of a feeding up a little, there is a pediatric feeding up (to the child pyureobrazny food is gradually entered), there is a pedagogical feeding up (the child receives food from the general adult table pieces). We will talk about introduction of pediatric feeding up.
For making decision on the beginning of introduction of new products to the child's diet, it is necessary to be guided by several indicators.

To choose with what food to feed the child, to prepare or to buy ready-made products, to solve only to you. If you are sure of quality of those products from which you cook food to your kid, can prepare a feeding up. If you buy products for a feeding up in supermarket or in the market from people unknown to you then it is better to trust in the children's food industry as before to get on a table to your child these products there takes place a number of researches.
For the first feeding up now pediatricians recommend to use vegetable puree or porridges. And porridges are chosen only when the child does not gather additionally the body weight. In all other cases it is better to begin to feed the child with vegetable puree. You can choose from what vegetables to begin to feed the child. It can be the cauliflower, broccoli or a squash. It is necessary to begin introduction of vegetable puree gradually with a half of a tea spoon, daily gradually increasing volume to 100-150 ml. On it about two weeks will leave. Later this time offer the child new taste. So, if you fed the child with a cauliflower, it is possible to give, for example, broccoli. In a week offer the child a squash.

Now it is possible to taste porridges. Kashi can prepare, and it is possible to buy ready porridges for baby food. They are good the fact that they are usually enriched with vitamins, minerals and even a probiotics. Prepare very quickly and are nice to the taste. Keep in mind that not all grain and flakes will be suitable for acquaintance to porridges. The child can offer nonmilk bezglyutenovy porridges: buckwheat, rice, corn. To one new taste a week. They should not contain other components, except those which the child tried. Kind of on it it was not beautiful it is written that it is a buckwheat squash apple and an apricot. As the child is not familiar with these tastes yet, it is better not to begin acquaintance to them with porridges together. In case of allergic reaction or intolerance it is necessary to remove both of these products from the child's diet. Three more weeks will leave on test of porridges.
After porridges it is possible to acquaint the child with meat which can be added to structure of vegetable puree. Requirements to meat simple: low-fat, homogeneous substance.
