Answer
Hi, Ikabal,

Seven month olds can eat what their parents eat, as long as it is in a preparation they will not choke on.  Limit whole milk and honey until a year. Make the diet varied with different grains, fruits, veggies and meats.  Pretty simple advise that I give every parent.  Feeding kids well is not difficult.

Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
