Dal, which is rich in energy and proteins, is a good supplementary meal to meet the increased demands of your baby. It also provides a good base to which you can add other ingredients that you wish to introduce to your baby’s diet, including veggies like carrot and beans.

Begin with a simple dal mash, and once your baby develops a liking for it, you add vegetables to it. While salt is not recommended by paediatricians at this age, you can mildly season with pepper if it suits your child.
