At 10 months, Misha Kapoor eats everything except THIS famous superfruit!
New mum Mira Rajput Kapoor shared that while Misha eats everything, she refuses to eat THIS superfood, which is proven to be the best solid for a baby
After a few months of exclusive breastfeeding, new parents Mira Rajput and Shahid Kapoor introduced solids to her daughter. In fact, Kapoor even shared that it was he who gave Misha her first bite of solids.
"I’ve spent a lot of time with Misha. I took a six-month paternity leave. I did it more for myself than her. I didn’t want to miss out on the experience. People cautioned me that it was not a good decision. That I’d be out of the limelight. But being an actor I’m a freelancer. I change her diapers, I give her bottle feeds. I fed her first solids," he said.
And while it seems the new parents have more or less been successful in introducing solids to their baby girl, there is still one item of food the 10-month-old desists. She refuses to eat it because of its unique taste.
While speaking the press after a book launch, the ever-so-stylish new mum Mira Rajput Kapoor dished out some secrets about her parenting style and also about Misha's eating habits.
Mira shared that while her 10-month-old daughter Misha is not a picky eater and eats almost everything that is given to her, they are unable to feed her avocado.
"She likes everything. She stops when she's full. But I think I've tried feeding her avocado, but it's too tasteless for her. She has a much more evolved palate," she said.
The 22-year-old young mum also added that while now Misha eats everything now based on her hunger, when she was even younger Mira worried if she was feeding her enough.
When asked if she looked any information up on the Internet post delivery Mira said, "I googled -Am I feeding her enough!"
The svelte mum also shared her secret of getting back into shape post pregnancy and categorically stated that she took her own time and did not rush because of Misha.
"I took my time and was not in a rush (to lose weight). Because I was feeding Misha and I did not want to compromise on that. I nursed her for the first couple of months and then I decided that I will get into a routine. And that's when I came to Pooja Makhija (celeb nutritionist). At the same time I started working out," she shared.
Rajput added, "I wanted it to be something that was included into my routine with Misha in mind. So, initially I used to workout when she would take her afternoon naps. Or I used to call the trainer home. We live on the beach so I did a lot of beach workout."
Well, it seems that Mira is right on track, whether it is feeding the baby or taking time to come back into shape and that's precisely what young mums must do. But if Mira's statement about Avocado is making you wonder whether you should give it to your baby, here's why you must!
Avocado's are often called nature's best fruits but due to the lack of any preferential taste many people often don't include it in their daily diets. But even science has proved that it is the best first solid for your baby.
your baby is not a fussy eater, you must try to add this to his/her meal plan as well. And here's why.
- It has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, which means that apart from providing it essential nutrients, this fruit will also control inflammation, remove toxins and work faster than antibiotics to repair damage or wounds in the body.
- It is not 'high on fat' for babies. If you are trying to lose baby fat, then perhaps you should consider the fact that avocado has natural fats. But it's healthy for a baby above the age of four months. In other words, avocado has good fats that are essential for your baby's growth and development.
- Not to forget, it includes essential minerals and nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin K, vitamin C and vitamin E; as well as iron, calcium, sodium, potassium and zinc.
