Spread the Joy!
My baby food section is a total hit. I have stopped publishing those post because maha is not much into baby foods anymore. I have started giving normal foods which we all eat to maha and occasionally i will give her different varieties of finger foods as evening snacks for her, so she gets a habit of self eating. Many of my viewers have been asking me to share some finger food ideas for babies. So i have started this series from today. So keep looking for new food ideas..
Maha is now 1.5 years and i have started giving this just now. Some people may think about peanut allergies, but feeding peanuts to babies below 1 year is not advisable. But you can slowly introduce peanuts after 1 year, but i kind of stayed away from it till now and started now. I dont want to give her whole peanuts, so made this peanut butter and gave her. I made apples as finger and dipped it in peanut butter and gave her. She liked it.
You can give this to babies above 1.5 years.
