Breastfeeding is the best for babies and a healthy diet / maternal nutrition is important when breastfeeding. A decision not to breastfeed can be difficult to reverse. Infant formula is suitable from birth when babies are not breastfed. It is recommended that all formula milks be used on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian, pharmacist, or other professional responsible for maternal and child care and the financial implications should be considered. All preparation and feeding instructions should be followed carefully as inappropriate preparation could lead to health hazards.

  • 1/4-1/2 cup cooking water (from boiled pumpkin)

Boil pumpkin till soft. Reserve cooking water.

Drain and mash with a fork through a sieve or blend into a purée.

Add 1/4 cup cooking water to the mashed pumpkin and mix in baby rice cereal. Vary the consistency according to your baby's ability to handle solids. You can further thin down the soup with more cooking water, follow-on formula or warm water.

Store excess in the refrigerator for not more than 24 hours.


This creamy soup is rich in vitamins and minerals from the fortified rice cereal and is an excellent source of beta carotene.
