Gradual introduction of liquid, soft and solid foods to an infant after 6 months of age along with usual milk feeds is called ''complementary feeding''. It is a transition from exclusive breastfeeding to family foods. World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that infants should be exclusively breast-fed for the first 6 months of life and then complementary foods should be introduced. Infants who are formula milk fed should also be introduced to complementary foods at 6 months of age.
