Homemade and finished food supplements must meet standards
Homemade: Personally make complementary foods for babies, economical and fresh. But it cannot be taken lightly.
Keep fresh: Fruits and vegetables for babies are best fresh. Foods such as eggs, fish, meat, and liver can be bought in supermarkets, and the quality is generally guaranteed; they must be cooked thoroughly to avoid infection, and pay close attention to whether they cause allergic reactions in the baby.
Hygiene: For fruits, choose oranges, apples, bananas, papaya and other husks that are easy to handle, and have less chance of pesticide pollution and pathogen infection. Vegetables like carrots, spinach, spinach, peas, cabbage, etc. are all good. Before cooking, soak the vegetables for half an hour in clean water or light salt water and wash them; all tableware, kitchen utensils and hands should be washed clean; rice bowls and plates are best to be disinfected with boiling water.

-Use a spoon instead of a pacifier
Don't put supplementary food in a bottle, but put it in a bowl or cup and use a spoon to feed the baby. This can exercise the baby's mouth and tongue coordination and swallowing ability.
-limit the time to eat liquid
Do not eat liquid food for too long. After the baby's deciduous teeth erupt, the complementary food will gradually become thicker and harder, so that the baby can learn to chew and allow him to gradually adapt to the adult's eating habits.
-treat very much in extraordinary times
When the baby is sick, supplementary food should be postponed to prevent gastrointestinal diseases.
-Changing cooking methods vs. rejecting complementary foods
If your baby doesn’t like something, such as carrots, you can first feed him the food he likes, such as a nutritious and delicious milk supplement, and try again after a period of time; you can also change the cooking method, such as putting carrots and apples together. Mud or squeezed into juice.
