How much should a 10 Month old Eat?

For a 10 months old baby:

  • Continue to give breastmilk or formula three times a day, 6-8 oz every time.
  • You can give upto 3 solid meals a day along with one snack. The quantity should be as per child’s appetite and choice.
  • Every baby is unique so do not compare how much your baby eats with any other baby.
  • Even though 3 day wait rule for babies is not considered essential anymore, it is still good to follow caution when introducing new food.

    Can u pls mention the timing to give food for baby. Especily dinner time, because the babies will hav a digestive pblm …

    1. Priya Sachan says:

      It is best to give solid meal at least 2 hours before your baby sleeps. You may breastfeed/ formula feed at bed time.

  2. Ashwini says:

    Hi Priya,

    First of all, I love your website – it is really helpful to find out what to make for my baby.

    I am a working mom of a 10 month old. My baby has been going to day care for the last three months. So far i used to give her Cerelac in day care whilst i give her fresh home cooked food while at home. But off late, my baby is rejecting the cerelac and seems to prefer more textured foods like rice. Whilst this is great news for me, I am really struggling on how to pack her fresh food for the whole day at childcare.

    I live outside India – so the child care providers dont know much about Indian food – i want to limit the prep time at the day care and perhaps put something in a hot pack which will stay good for about 4 hours plus.

    Any advise on what food I can consider which will stay good for at least few hours if I keep it in a hot pack? I notice things like Rice become very cakey if its not fresh.

    Thanks much in advance!

    1. Priya Sachan says:

      Hi Ashwini,
      You can give khichdi which is a complete meal so you will not have to make any accompaniments and it also stays better than rice since it has more water.
      If you baby likes chapati, you can pack different kinds of paranthas. Stuffed paranthas with nicely mashed stuffing are soft and also stay well for many hours.
      Hope these help. Much love your baby..

  3. HK says:

    My question is does a 10 month baby eat all these paranthas and rotis as a whole without grinding? My baby is 10 month old and does not have teeth yet to chew this. Wouldn’t there be a problem while swallowing these solid foods?
    I give dal khichadi with some veggies, cerelac, milk, ragi kheer, semolina sheera but have to blend the rice else she vomits. Please suggest how to make her eat without teeth and that won’t get stuck in her throat.

    Many Thanks in advance

    1. Priya Sachan says:

      Hi, I can understand your concern, but you are not supposed to give whole chapatis. When you want to give chapati, shred it into tiny pieces and soak it in dal, milk or vegetable curry and give.

  4. dhiren chettri says:

    my baby is 10 month running and his skin is sensitive.would you please suggest me what kind of food should be given to him.(we generally give him milk rice,cereals, carrot,potato,palak,lauki,mango,orange,frooti)

    1. Jyoti Kadam says:


      For sensitive skin, providing rice,cereals, carrot,potato,palak,lauki,mango,orange,frooti is ok but milk is not suitable for many of the babies i have come through. Dr. also suggest not to feed cow milk before 12 month old (here you can go for Nan Pro milk powder which i easily available specially made for babies).

  7. naomi says:

    my 10months baby dont want to eat i have to force her a spoon or two

    1. Priya Sachan says:

      Hi Naomi, Perhaps he is falling his little tummy up with something else. You may try to space out feedings and see if he is more hungry.

  8. GAURAV MISHRA says:

    Baby food chart plays very important role for the growth of babies. But some parents do not care about their food or there are not aware about how to follow the chart. I was also not aware about it, by reading your post I got some basic tips for my baby.
