  1. I have a baby who is 4m old. When she was born, doctors advised that cow's milk should not be given upto a year. Please let me know what was followed in earlier days? Also, toddlers of what age can be fed with Paal Sadam? Thank you Aunty :)

    1. Hi Padma, 4 months is so early to start with solid foods as the digestive system of the baby wouldn't be grown enough to digest solid foods. So to start with soak 1 teaspoon of raagi(Kezhvaragu) in water for 30 minutes minimum. It is even better to soak the ragi overnight also. Then grind the soaked raagi in the mixer. You will get raagi extract. This wouldn't be a smooth paste, instead it will be like a milk. Just strain the ragi milk to remove the grains from the milk. Then add the ragi milk to a bowl or pan and keep stirring in low flame add water slowly and keep stirring atleast for 10 minutes till we get a thick paste. You might get paste immediately but keep adding water so that the ragi would be cooked properly. Finally remove from flame allow it to cool of fully and add very little cane sugar(panagkalkandu) and feed the baby. Start with a teaspoon of raagi porridge and steady your baby's reaction. If her stool is asusual then her body is ready for little semi-solid foods. For 1 st week start with 1 teaspoon slowly increase the quantity. Hope this helps. You can also see some purees in this link which would also be helpful for you.

    2. Thank you Aunty. Will start on the Raagi Kanji at the earliest :)
