Weaning Foods: Papaya Porridge for Babies

Papaya Porridge is a bright coloured food item that works wonders for baby’s visual appeal. Break away from the monotonous looking purees and mashes and serve this bright coloured dish to your bundle of joy. 

Introducing babies to foods, during infancy, that they might reject once grown up is a good way of making them appreciate the foods early. Papaya is very beneficial for babies as it helps in digestion and given the new baby diet it is imperative there is some good digestion as well! This yummy and creamy dish can be a good evening meal for kids to help better digest the day’s feed. Besides, the Vitamin A supply is high in Papaya which is an ideal thing for a growing baby. 

I have always refrained from adding any sweeteners to my infant’s meal, it’s best to resort to the original flavour and taste of the main ingredient as it helps the taste buds open up and accept new flavours early in life. 

You can prepare and feed this to your baby within few weeks of starting the weaning process.
