Dhanalakshmi, haven t heard of red one. I however make white n yellow. U can start giving it to ur kid. avoid peanuts and Make it less spicy.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello dhanalakshmi...
red poha, which is made from red rice. The red colour is due to the presence of a pigment called anthocyanin, which is also a flavonoid. Moreover, unlike white rice, red rice doesn't undergo excessive processing, and as such the other bran layer remains intact, which is rich is fiber, vitamin B, and minerals like calcium, zinc, iron, manganese, magnesium etc. Red rice is also enriched with antioxidants that help in fighting free radicals in our body, preventing the risk of diseases like cancer...So organic red poha is best n im using it
