4 Best recipes for one-year-old

As the baby grows to become a toddler, their eating habits also require modifications. The increase in movement, activities, etc., will demand more energy, which only milk, purees and semi-solid foods may not sufficiently provide.

Along with that, introducing foods of different textures, flavours, and variety is also essential. Thus, we have 4 best recipes for your one-year-old, which will provide both nutrition and taste.
