Y OUR BABY NEEDS A VARIETY OF FOODS :
T HINGS TO REMEMBER Between the age of 6 months and 2 years a child needs to continue breastfeeding. If you are not breastfeeding, feed your baby two cups (500 ml total) of milk every day. Avoid giving a baby tea, coffee, soda and sugary or coloured drinks. Limit amount of fresh juices. Always feed the baby using a clean open cup. Do not use bottles, teats or cup with a mouth piece.
S AFE PREPARATION AND STORAGE Wash your hands with running water and soap before preparing food, and before feeding your baby. Babys hands should be washed also. Wash your hands after changing nappies or going to the toilet. Wash all bowls, cups and utensils with clean water and soap. Keep covered before using. Prepare food in a clean area and keep it covered. A baby should have his or her own cup and bowl. Serve food immediately after preparation. Thoroughly reheat any food that has been kept for more than an hour.
Babies gradually learn to feed themselves. An adult or an older child should encourage the baby to eat enough food and ensure that the food remains clean.
