6 months old baby food chart in Bangladesh

In Bangladesh, as in many other places, feeding a 6-month-old baby involves the introduction of solid foods in addition to breast milk or formula. At this age, babies are generally ready to eat solid foods and can begin to explore different textures and flavors. Here are some common foods and tips for feeding 6 month old babies in Bangladesh:

1. Rice Cereal: Rice is a staple in Bangladesh and rice flakes are often added to solid meals. You can start with rice porridge or rice cereal mixed with breast milk or formula. Make sure it is well cooked and has a soft consistency to avoid choking hazard.

2. Dal (Lentils) and Vegetables: Cooked lentils (Dal) and pureed vegetables like carrots, potatoes and pumpkin are nutritious options. Start with one ingredient and gradually add new ones.

3. Fruits: Pureed or mashed fruits like bananas, mangoes, and papayas are excellent choices. Ensure they are ripe and mashed to a consistency suitable for your baby.

4. Fish and Meat: Fish is a significant part of the Bangladeshi diet. You can introduce small amounts of finely minced or pureed fish or chicken. Make sure it has no bones and is well cooked so it doesn't suffocate.

5. Avoid spices: Baby starter food should be mild and free of spices. The digestive system is still developing. As your baby grows, you can gradually introduce gentle spices.

6. Breast milk or formula: Continue breastfeeding or provide formula as the primary source of nutrition. At this age, solid foods should supplement breast milk or formula, not replace it.

7. Texture Progression: Start with smooth, blended textures and gradually progress to thicker textures with small, soft pieces as your baby gets used to solid foods.

8. Allergic Foods: Introduce allergenic foods (e.g., peanuts, eggs, dairy) individually and in small quantities and monitor for allergic reactions.

9. Hydration: Give small sips of water from a Sippy cup or small open cup to make it easier for your child to drink from a cup. However, the main source of hydration remains breast milk or formula.

10. Feeding Schedule: At this age, the baby can eat solid food 2-3 times a day, but the main source of nutrition should still be breast milk or formula.


Always consult your pediatrician before introducing new foods into your child's diet, especially if you have doubts about allergies or special dietary needs. They can offer individualized advice based on your child's health and development. Also, pay close attention to your baby's cues and preferences because every baby is unique and may have different food preferences.
