Codes and Frequencies
For sample persons either less than 3 years old and older than 6 months or less than 6 months old who had ever been given solid food, (SOLFOODEV), SOLFOODAEV reports the age when the child started eating solid food on a daily basis.
While the 1981 Field Representative's Manual, did not provide a definition of solid food, it does provide examples, "such as commercially prepared strained and junior foods, "table foods," or any other non-liquid foods."
The Field Representative's Manual directs interviewers to give example foods in this question only if SOLFOODEV was not asked.
