Indian Meal Plan for 9 Months baby

At 9 months, you baby is most probably ready for a lot more variety than previous months. Now is a good time to give complex cereals and foods.


9 month baby food chart

This 9 month Indian baby food chart will help you plan meals for your baby. By 9 months, most kids are comfortable eating solids and are having 3 solid meals. It cannot be stressed enough that breastmilk or formula provides fat and nutrients for baby’s growing body for the first year and should be continued along with the solids.



By 9 months, you can introduce non-vegetarian food like egg yolks, chicken and some fish to baby. You may choose to introduce these earlier too with your pediatrician’s approval.Also follow the 3 day wait rule, when introducing something completely new.

Soft chapatis and paranthas can be broken into small pieces and given as finger food too. Eventhough most babies are able to manage lumpy food, it should still be well-cooked and soft to chew. Hard food items like rawcarrots etc. can pose choking hazard.

By now you might be planning to start finger foods for your baby. If you feel your baby is still not ready for finger foods, wait for few more weeks. The period between 9 months to 12 months is usually a good window to start finger foods and lay the foundation of healthy and happy eating for life. If you are confused what you could give as finger food, check out our 75+ finger food ideas for babies and kids


  • It cannot be stressed enough that your goal should be to allow baby to experience as many textures and tastes as possible. By 9 months most babies are ready for more adventurous eating than just purees.
  • If you are still pureeing your baby’s food, please stop. Introduce lumpy food and soft cooked finger foods like carrots.
  • Please don’t be scared to give regular food to baby. I gave this food to my daughter even before she cut her first tooth which was at the age of 11 months. Thousands of mothers have followed our food charts with success.

    1. Priya Sachan says:

      Don’t make it a battle. Give what he likes and in between keep offering new things. But try not to get too bothered if he still refuses.

    2. Ritanjali says:

      I guess u can try making dalia and apple puree, Vegetable boiled and pureed. I also have 9 months baby and i try giving variety veggies pureed form with either dalia or suji or rice. Have not yet tried ragi but its in the list for upcoming weeks. if ur worried for colic issues then u can visit a pediatric for solution. U can also give dal water by filtering.. i add veggies to dal water and puree n give to baby. Changing taste makes it exciting for her to happily have the food. but my LO does not like orange at all and she spits out.. 🙂

  4. manasa says:

    Hi..am bit surprised looking at the chart given for 9months old babies…How can babies eat chapathi/parata/ragi dosa etc .Babies digestive system is still developing ,how can they have these varieties.Please guide me on how to give these foods/correct me if am wrong

    1. Priya Sachan says:

      Hi Manasa,
      Baby can easily digest plain fulkas(chapati), soft piranha etc. at 9 months. When you make a small fulka, shred it into small pieces, soak in dal etc. and then offer. Stuffed parantha should be made very small and soft which baby can try and explore as a finger food.
      However, every baby is different and you know your baby best. So, if you feel your baby needs more time in starting these foods, wait for a few more weeks. This is just a guideline to help. Hope this helps!
