At birth, mother’s milk alone is adequate for the infant. Requirements of all the nutrients progressively increase with the infant’s growth. With time breast milk secretion in the mothers comes down, thus, infants are deprived of adequate nutrients due to the dual factors of increased nutrient requirements and decreased availability of breast-milk. Usually, these changes occur at about 6 months of age. Hence, promotion of optimal growth in infants, calls for introduction of adequate foods in addition to continued breast feeding, from the age of 6 months onwards. Parent should know the different method and techniques through which they can help their child move from one food source to other.
