After 6 months, the WHO recommends introducing small amounts of nutrient rich foods to an infant's diet along with continued breastfeeding until two years of age. After 6 months of age, breastmilk needs to be supplemented with nutritious foods such as animal source foods to meet the nutrient needs of the child.
