  1. This is the superfood, I think baby’s first food can be this mix porridge around 7 months. I skipped the market bought cerelac and introduced homemade cerelac which was something like this only. I can’t say about the weight gain, but this is definitely healthy and nutritious for babies.


  2. I appreciate your efforts in putting up this post. The images make the picture even more clear. I do think this is far better a superfood than the commercial ones..!


  3. It’s really amazing recipe for all the moms who are worried for their kids health, I didn’t know whether it’s helpful in weight gain or not but it’s 100% healthy food as it contains all pulses and dry fruits… Thanx for sharing this amazing recipe.
