    Is your girl ok with wheat based baby food. If so, may be just continue. A small proportion of babies are intolerant to wheat. Personally I usually advice to start with either rice or ragi based baby food as the first one. Only because if the initial experience is with something that may not agree with a baby, weaning on to solids can become a bit troublesome. So with your baby: continue if she is ok or switch to rice or start rice in addition to. I hope she is over 5 and half or 6 months of age now?
