Dear Reshmee,

Thank you for your question,

It is important that you don't give your little one salt before his first birthday. However, as you mentioned that he wants to eat with you, you could give him a few finger foods, and keep him with you'll, while you are eating, this can be a great time for family bonding, and stimulate the practice of family meal times. Jaggery can also be given to him occasionally.
