    Ragi Kanji

    Hi Sonu,


    I tried this and my baby eats this. I add 1 tablespoon of kanji powder and dilute it as thin as possible with water and boil it well for 10 mins and add sugar and milk and let it boil for 2 mins and let it cool and give it to baby and she will like it. Thought of sharing with you.

    Plum And Banana Puree

    PLUM AND BANANA PUREE

    Sharp or acidic fruits like plums are not easily accepted by babies. But these fruits provide plenty of vitamin C and should be included in their diet. Adding some mashed banana tones down the sharpness of the plums and keeps both baby and you happy.

    Ingredients
    3 ripe plums, peeled and deseeded
    1 banana, peeled and deseeded
    1 to 2 teaspoons sugar (optional)

    Method

    1. Combine all the ingredients, blend in liquidiser and serve immediately.

    Hello Everybody

    Our son is going to be 6 months old. He is majorly depending on breast feed. However, have started giving him Cerelac (once during day time) + Lactogen (Once during evening). From this month onwards, we are planning to give him semisolilds + other nutritius food one by one. Would request interesting suggestions and tips on this regard from my Indusladies friends. Please note that we are vegetarians. But Egg related recipes can be suggested.

    Thanks & Regards

    Lakshmi & Vinoth
