Question: Can i give ragi as babies first food?

2 Answers
Answer: Hi.. Dear breast feed or formula milk still remains the prior part of your baby's diet.. Normal milk can be given after an year. However, after completion of six months you can give boiled cereal water first (dal ka pani), then semi liquid porridges (vegetable khichdi, lentil and rice porridges), boiled and mashed potatoes, bananas (mashed or in the form of smoothie). Avoid bananas during winters. If the baby is able to digest these food sources, then introduce ragi, oats, dalia.
Answer: Hello dear, yes you can give. But as raagi contain high fibres, it could cause stomach upset in baby. I will suggest you to start with food which is very low in allergens. For example, you can start with rice porridge, mashed potatoes, mash sweet potatoes, banana, avocado, boiled apple etc.
