Entering the age of 6 months, infants require additional food other than breast milk (ASI). These are usually known as complementary foods for breast milk ( MPASI ).

Along with complementary feeding, babies can also be given snacks between their meals. Giving snacks also should not be forgotten.

Head of Medical KALBE Nutritionals dr. Muliaman Mansyur also pays attention to the importance of nutritional intake for children's growth and development . According to him, parents must ensure the best nutritional intake, especially during the complementary feeding phase, including snacks.

"Your little one must get important nutrients such as macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, fat) from rice, grains, milk, and meat," said dr. Muliaman.

"In addition, micro-nutrients such as iron, calcium, and vitamin D are also needed which can be obtained from eggs, vegetables, and fruit. In addition, also give love and stimulation to the little one, "said Dr. Muliaman Mansyur.

Since he was aged 6 months, your little one needs to be introduced to 2-3 types of nutritious snacks, in addition to three balanced meals every day. Of course, the texture and taste must be given according to the stage of growth and development of the little one.

Snacking time is an additional opportunity to introduce them to a more varied and healthy diet. Snacks can also increase the amount of vitamins and nutrients in his diet, and maintain his energy so he can play, explore, and learn.

Age-appropriate choices

At the age of 6 months, a healthy snack that can be chosen is baby biscuits. Baby biscuits can stimulate tooth growth, dissolve easily in water or milk, and contain complete, balanced nutrition.

In addition to baby biscuits, you can also provide natural fruit puree without added sugar. You can make your own at home or buy it at the nearest supermarket, because now there are many natural fruit purees especially for babies that are in packaging.

Entering the age of 8 months, your little one has begun to be able to grasp and move things in both hands. In this period, parents can introduce snacks that can train their motor development.

For example, practice gripping with finger food. Some of them are fruit that has been cut into pieces or special healthy snacks for babies that have been included in the package.
