Baby Food 6 Months Above- Yogurt/Dahi/Curd

Print Friendly


We all know the benefits of yogurt, it’s a part and parcel of our Indian food be in a accompaniment with rice or roti, or curd rice in the south. Even milk haters like me love yogurt, salted sweet, flavored etc.

Yogurt is a valuable health food for both infants and elderly persons. For children, it is a balanced source of protein, fats, carbohydrates, and minerals. For senior citizens, who usually have more sensitive colons or whose intestines have run out of lactase, yogurt is also a valuable food. Elderly intestines showed declining levels of bifidus bacteria, which allow the growth of toxin-producing and, perhaps, cancer-causing bacteria. Yogurt may help prevent osteoporosis, reduce the risk of high blood pressure. Yogurt with active cultures helps the gut, may discourage vaginal infections, and may help one feel fuller.

Its safe to give your baby yogurt when he or she turns 6 months. It’s the best source of calcium for babies, as babies younger than 12 months cannot feed on milk. It is one of the easiest baby food you can think off and filling too. You can give it to your baby for an evening snack or after breakfast. I prefer to make fresh yogurt at home.

How to prepare yogurt at home:

Boil milk and let it cool to a level where you can dip your finger inside without burning. Do not let the milk cool completely. For kids you can use full fat milk. But I prefer normal milk. To this add 2 tsp of yogurt (for half liter milk). Close the vessel and keep it in a warm corner so that its not disturbed. After 4-5 hours you will find the milk turned into yogurt. Now you can consume fresh or store in the fridge.

Baby food variations:

  • Yogurt with sugar
  • Yogurt and salt
  • Yogurt sweet and salt
  • Yogurt smoothie- choose any fruit and blend with yogurt. You can use apple, banana, avocado, chickoo, strawberries, mango etc.
  • Yogurt Raitha- add purees of carrot or any veggie to yougurt
  • Spinach yogurt- add spinach puree to yogurt

    Baby feeding every 2-3 hrs is routine for most moms as it is the only baby food for at least the first 6 months. In the first months, baby feeding is not just a way to meet the baby’s nutrition needs but also to help provide comfort to the baby. Often, even the smallest cry triggers you, the mom, to find a corner to breastfeed, no matter what you are doing. While everyone else around you goes happily on with whatever they are doing.
