Millets for Babies
New parents are always eager and anxious to find the perfect food for their babies once they start on solids. The best baby food is one that is not just tasty but easily digestible & nutritious with all the essential vitamins & minerals.
The food that fits all the above criteria is Millet grains. These power-packed grains are extremely safe for infants and toddlers. Millet cereal is high in fiber, protein, calcium, magnesium & iron which are all essential nutrients for babies. It also has a low glycemic index which means it will not affect the baby’s blood sugar levels as much as other cereals like corn or rice would.
Millet cereal is a great way to start your baby's day as it provides them with the necessary nutrition they need to grow. It is not only easy to digest but has a variety of uses. Also since millets are gluten-free the risk of babies being allergic to millets is extremely low
When to start Millet feeding
Usually, babies can be started on solid foods from the 6th month onwards. Like any other solid food, millets should be eased in gradually into the baby’s diet.
