Food for the kid
by: Shailja

Hi
My daoctor has advised to give EASUM to my baby with milk. EASUM is a mixture of moong daal and rice and is just like cerelac.
I generally feed my child 3-4 times a day. Fruit juice he doesn’t like so i have to make milk shake, raw banana – elaichi 1 as it is good source of food contains all necessary ingredients and can be eaten while the baby is suffering from cold. Morning i feed him with easum milk, afternoon khichdi – either vegetables or daal cooked in ghee as they need fat at this stage. then around 4 pm i give him milk with raagi and easum. in the night i give him roti meshed in milk and jaggery. But he wakes up at night in betwwen at 12 then at 3 am
is this because i feed him with roti and jaggery in the night. any advise here??

baby food for 7 months old
by: Anonymous


khichdi-rice and dal (yellow mungdal and some turdal) either roast and then pound and then cooked to smooth texture and again grind in mixer add only2 pinch salt and slowly slowly veges like carrot,potato,cauliflower…which are seedless and can be pureed .even can cood the khichdi without roasting rice and dal …just cook the dal and rice directly with little more water. Another food is broken wheat i.e lapshi rava also called samba sooji …cook lapshi rava 2 spoons in small vessel with adding water 3/4 glass of water boil till it turns smoother then add cow’s milk 3-4 spoons less amount as they are new to outside milk ,add 1 cashew,1 almond, 5-6 raisins and anjir (fig)at the begining while boiling sooji can add one cardamom and little bit of jaggery but while grinding in mixer remove green cardamom, and take out fig open it and deseed completely coz the seeds are hard, remove seeds with fingers and finally wash the fig skin and then put in mixer and grind to a smooth paste my baby loves it can give them twice or thrice a week….,fruit pulp can be given like apple ,papaya ,chikoo,banana don’t add milk to fruit coz it causes cough…….,another receipe is boil carrot using cinnamon stik and in same add green peas and corns and 1 black pepper and 2 pinch salt…. grind removing cinamon this adds natural sweetness….

such a sweet baby
by: payal


ur baby is really cute… my baby, aditya, is 10 months old now… i give him khichadi (moong dal n rice) n he simply loves eating it… sometimes i add carrot, spinach, tomato n cauliflower to it n he doesnt have a problem with that too… he also likes daal chawal… apart from that, i make it a point to add a whole peeled potato in most of the subjis’ i prepare for us… this way the potato gets cooked to its core n also some of d taste from d masalas seep into it (which is just perfect for ur baby)… i started doing this coz my baby hates boiled potato… but he loves eating it this way…

Mahek an angel
by: Mabel

Hi Rupal

Mahek is such a darling angel. She reminds me so much of little Simone who too will turn 7 months on 1st of April.

On taking advice from people about baby food, I was not to give nachni until they are one yr old. I am glad to read that you have introduced that to Mahek at 7 months, that means I too can start with Simone. Is it ok to give? Is it digestable? Have you tried giving her suji or oat poridge. If you have any easy tips on food preparation, please do let me know.

The benefits of Nachani
by: Christine (Editor)

Thanks, Rupal, for telling us about Mahek’s very nutritious diet.

Many western parents will be unfamiliar with Nachani, but they may know it by another name – Finger Millet! It is a popular baby food in India, highly recommended by pediatricians, as it is a rich source of calcium.

A good way to prepare finger millet for your baby is to grind it into a powder. Stir around 7fl oz milk (breast milk or formula) into a good teaspoon of the powdered millet and warm gently, stirring continuously. This creates a smooth ‘paste’, to which you can add pureed fruits if you wish – apples or pears are ideal!

We’d love to read some more Khichdi and Nachani baby food recipes – so please do add them here if you have them!
