3단계: 생후 7-9개월

Feeding baby

대부분의 아기들은 젖 떼기를 시작하고 몇 주 안에 간단한 과일 및 채소 이유식에 익숙해지는데, 이때부터 다음 단계로 넘어가야 합니다:

- 고기 또는 닭 이유식

- 쌀 이유식이나 매우 부드럽게 익힌 파스타

- 프로마쥬 프레이, 요거트, 소량의 치즈 등과 같은 전지 유제품

 

젖 떼기 초기 단계에 아기는 부드러운 이유식뿐만 아니라 식감이 있고 씹히는 이유식도 좋아할 겁니다. 브라운 멀티 퀵 핸드 블렌더로 이유식을 낮은 속도에서 짧은 시간 동안 갈아 보다 진하고 씹히는 식감을 더할 수 있습니다. 음식을 씹는 것은 아기의 구강 근육 발달에 도움이 되며 향후 음성 개발에 도움이 됩니다.

 

여전히 모유 및 분유가 아기의 식단에 중요한 자리를 차지하지만, 이 단계에서는 고형식 이유식의 섭취량이 많아질 것이고 하루 3끼를 먹게 될 것입니다.

 

이 정도 되면 대부분의 아기들은 잘 익힌 부드러운 파스타를 즐기게 되며, 야채를 곁들인 이유식 소스도 좋아하게 될 것입니다. 생후 8개월 정도 되면 아기들은 음식을 손으로 직접 잡을 수 있고 부드러운 과일이나 익힌 채소와 같은 ‘핑거 푸드’를 좋아하게 됩니다. 구운 야채를 특히 좋아합니다.

 

질식의 위험이 있기 때문에 식사 때마다 부모의 보살핌이 필요하다는 점 잊지 마세요.

Preparation
Place the fruits and the water into a large saucepan. Add the vanilla essence. Bring to the boil then stir well, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 mins until syrupy. Remove pan from the heat, then, when cooled slightly, pour the fruits and liquid into a bowl and squeeze in a little lemon juice. Purée gently with your Braun Multiquick hand processor. Can be served warm or chilled, with a blob of yoghurt on top.
Other family members will love this warming winter fruit salad. You may wish to sweeten slightly with a little honey or brown sugar, and omit the pureeing stage.
