Baby and Toddlers Food!

First time am giving out recipes for Babies and Toddlers.Am sharing few recipes here for toddlers below 1 yr.

After 6 to 8 months can start little rice for babies. Always start with 1 to 2 spoons at one time and then slowly increase as weeks pass. We have to introduce all kinds of food while young so when they grow big their tastebuds are used to all food and flavours. Since many kids are picky eaters and some dont eat vegetables and some fruits.

0-6 formula milk and other foods are not recommended by Doctors.

Recipe 1 - Ragi Seri
Clean Ragi powder and seive it.

Boil 1 cup of water, add ragi to it with little salt or sugar. stir slowly until it cooks and becomes a fine paste.

This can be given to babies after 6months.

While giving this just check whether it suits baby as for some it may cause diarohea.

Usually there is saying Girl babies can digest better than boy babies so girls are first persons to try new food.

Recipe 2 - Rava Kanji after 6 months
Rava/Semolina is good for babies. I learnt from my aunt who made this for my son.
Take 2 tspns rava and dry roast it till you get the aroma.
Then add 1 cup of milk and sugar and mix well until rava is cooked.

Serve when its warm.

Recipe 3- Paruppu Sadam after 7 months

Since Dal contains proteins they also require vitamins, calcuim, carbohydrates its good for babies. Cooked rice 2 tspns, a drop of ghee and 1 tspn cooked toor dal.

Grind all in mixie to a fine paste with little water or rasam.

Recipe 4 - Vegetable rice after 9 months

In a mixie put cooked rice , 2 tspns cooked tour dal, 1 cup cooked veggie (beans,carrot and potato) ghee

1/2 cup non spicy rasam.

Grind all these to a fine paste and feed the baby when its cool.

Tips - While feeding baby its good you intereact with them and feed. Keep warm water, spoon, towel ready before you start serving. Can also watch TV and listen music. Its good to make them eat at one place and not moving inside and outside house. This happens only in India.

Note : When adding curds do not add ghee.

Sorry, I was not allowed to take baby food photos that time.

Check out recipes for 1 to 2 yrs here.
