As your son/daughter gets older, you can try adding new foods into his/her diet, like soft solids. Soft solids are foods that are easy to chew and have a consistent texture. Bananas, baked sweet potatoes and meat from soup, for example, are soft solids. The amount of food your son/daughter needs depends on age. The charts below will help you figure out how much food you should feed your son/daughter based on age. These charts provide general guidance, but all kids are a little different. When feeding your son/daughter, it’s best to follow his/her hunger cues, or signs and behaviors that he/she is still hungry or getting full.
