Abstract

The introduction of solid feeding and gradual replacement of milk by solid food as the main source of nutrition is the process known as weaning. In Ayurveda it was explained under Stanya Apanayana concept. Nutrition plays central and most affecting role in growth and development of child. The world health organisation defines complementary food as any food whether manufactured or locally prepared, suitable as compliment to breast milk or to infant formula which satisfies nutritional demand of infant. WHO gives global recommendation for exclusive Breast feeding up to 6 months. But in later period breast milk is not enough to provide increased nutritional demand of baby so complementary feeding (weaning) is introduced to provide adequate nutrition for proper growth and development of baby. An attempt has been made of compilation and evaluation of complementary feeding from classical Ayurveda and modern practices.
