Q.

Protein/Starch/yoghurt

Hi doc

my daughter is 7 months, she has been eating veggies (baby marrow, pumkin, carrots, sweet potatoes, beans tec) and fruit (pears, apples, banana and avo) for the last 6 weeks.

When can I start her on protein (chicken, mince, chicken liver????), and when can she have rice, pasta or cous cous... also when can she have yogurt?

Your baby can start with chicken now and can start yoghurt at 8 months.See: www.babynet.co.za
