rest times milk.

Hi Neha, try giving your child mixed vegetable khichdi. You can also give suji kheer, ragi porridge, wheat porridge for breakfast. Use jaggery as a sweetener in all this, instead of sugar. Check out various articles on Babychakra (under the 'learn' section) on healthy, nutritious food for babies. You will get many ideas for good recipes.

Thank you Charu and Dr. Aarushi
