The Annaprashana (Sanskrit: अन्नप्राशन, Annaprāśana, Bengali: অন্নপ্রাশন, Onnoprashon) also known as annaprashana vidhi, annaprasan or Anna-prasanam, is a Hindu rite of passage ritual (Saṃskāra) that marks an infant's first intake of food other than milk. The term annaprashan literally means "food feeding" or "eating of food".
The ceremony is usually arranged in consultation with a priest, who arranges an auspicious date on which to conduct the ceremony.
Annaprashan begins with a puja or a havan for your baby's health and happiness, followed by the symbolic feeding of the prasad or the first bite of solid food.
the ceremony is usually carried out when the child is six to eight months old and the teeth have begun to appear,
though it may be weaned at a later time. It is an occasion for celebration, and extended family, friends and neighbours
are invited to attend. Annaprashan is performed during the even months for boys, generally in the child's sixth or the eighth month. For girls, it is performed during the odd months, usually the child's fifth or the seventh month.
The religious ceremony may be followed by a fun game where a number of symbolic objects are placed on a banana leaf or silver tray which your baby can then pick up. The objects include:
books symbolising learning
jewels symbolising wealth
a pen symbolising wisdom
clay symbolising property
food items symbolising a love for food
Family and friends have a great time cheering the little one while he makes his choice. It is believed that the object your baby picks up from the tray represents his area of interest in future.
