What Should You Feed Your 9 Month Old Child
You can start by mixing softer table foods like cooked pasta and soft fruits, in with your baby's favorite pureed baby food. This will help them learn to chew and deal with the new textures in their mouths.
Finger foods are small bite sized pieces of food that your baby can easily pick up, chew and swallow. Finger foods can be given when your baby has become accustomed to eating a variety of table foods.
Small portions are essential in your baby's new eating habits. As babies grow some will eat more and some less as they go through these spurts of growth. Each baby will be ready for bigger portion sizes as they grow. A normal portion size for a 9 month old is about 2 tablespoons to a 1/4 cup.
For 9 month olds: honey, added salt and sugar should be avoided
