Before we share the complete baby recipe, let’s read what she has to say about coming upon this recipe -

“I was always given ready-made cereals as a child because my mother was a working mom. She never had the opportunity to create something herself and feed it to me. 

So I decided to introduce something more delicious and more nutritious for my munchkin.  

When Adhrit, my 5-year-old little boy, had turned 6 months old, it was time to introduce him to solids. So I started with mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green peas, carrots, dal, Khichdi, etc., but my baby always disliked it all & it was difficult to feed him even a single spoon.  

Then I became concerned about this because after 6 months breastfeeding alone is not sufficient for a baby. They should start getting nutrients from other sources as well. 

So I decided to give him some healthy cereals that weren't store-bought.

Initially, I made a small batch of these multigrain cereals and fed it to my kiddo. He enjoyed it in ways I could never have imagined, and it was a huge success.  

From then on, I started preparing it in large quantities and stored it in the refrigerator. I used to prepare enough to last me for two to three months.  

He was fed only this until he was two years old. Then, after completing 2 years, he was introduced to rice and other foods. But still, he got to taste everything we eat in the form of porridge.  

Do try out this baby recipe with a small quantity and an equal proportion of measurements.”
