Now that your child is 11 months old, he may be familiarising himself with new words. Encourage him by naming different objects around the house. As for nutrition, you can start to feed him baby food that includes yogurt and a variety of mashed fruits and vegetables. The extra nutrients and tastes will help your child transition to solid food.
Yogurt can be beneficial for your child as it contains protein and calcium. It also provides variety to your child’s baby food. However, it is important to avoid cow’s milk until your child is 1 year old. His digestive system does not have the enzymes to fully break down lactose in the milk.
In yogurt, lactose is broken down by active bacterial cultures such as thermophiles and bulgaricus, so your child can digest it easily. Moreover, the process of making yogurt modifies milk proteins for easy digestion. Your child can try pasteurised whole-milk yogurts that are plain or naturally sweetened. Do check with your doctor if your child has been diagnosed with milk intolerance or if they show any signs of allergy when you introduce yogurt.
To ensure that big nutrition is absorbed by your child’s small tummies, you can try CERELAC Infant Cereals. They are specially formulated using CHE (Cereals Hydrolysed Enzymatically) technology. This ensures that carbohydrates such as rice or wheat are broken down to smaller components for ease of digestion. CERELAC Infant Cereals are also developed with BIFIDUS BL probiotics which help improve beneficial intestinal microflora in your child’s digestive system and reduce the incidence of diarrhoea.
If it seems like your child may not be able to take in a lot of food at the moment, don’t worry. It’s a natural part of growing up. Soon, your child may be eating anything in reach. Here’s to a great time with your child!
For a complete nutritious meal, add diced vegetables, and pieces of meat to your child’s favourite infant cereal. You can try some of our Recipes to help prepare some delicious meals for your child.
