Question: which flavour of Raggi is good for 6 month baby
Answer: Use basic ragi flour for baby. Better if u can make it urself at home. Specially spouted ragi flour.
Wash ragi seeds thoroughly and soak them in drinking water overnight. Drain out all the water in the next afternoon. Take a perforated utensil and line it with a clean white muslin cloth. Put the drained ragi seeds over the cloth. Tie it up and place it somewhere undisturbed in your kitchen for at least 12 hours (I kept overnight). Next day you can see all the ragi seeds with tiny white sprouts on their top.Spread those sprouted seeds in a clean mat or a plate and dry it under sunlight or under fan for few hours till it is completely dry. As I am staying in flat I kept them under fan plus partial sunlight (you can see in the pic below). Heat a large non-stick pan or kadai. Add the dried ragi in it and roast on a very low flame and get it lightly toasted. Cool it down completely.Put roasted ragi seeds in a blender. Add little (1/4 tsp) ginger powder and elachi powder to it. This step is completely optional. Powder it. If the quantity is large powder by giving it to a flour mill. I have done it in my mixie as I took less quantity.
Keep an eye on your mixie not to get overheated. If then wait for a while, allow it to cool down then you can proceed. Flour is ready .

Benefits of ragi
Ragi flour is recommended as a weaning food for babies because of its high nutritional content. It prevents malnutrition and provides adequate amount of energy too.
Ragi is non-glutinous and non-acidic. So it’s easy to digest. It is a good laxative too.
Feels full when consumed:
Ragi contains complex carbohydrate and glucose is released very slowly into the blood without overloading. Thus it keeps us full for a long period of time.
Ragi contains tryptophan, an amino acid which helps to curb appetite. Hence ragi porridge is a very healthy dinner for babies.
It is ideal for pregnant mothers and helps build immunity to the baby in the womb.
High calcium and iron:
It is good for lactating mother due to its high calcium and iron content. It improves the production of blood too.
Maintain blood sugar levels:
The fibre content in ragi lowers cholesterol and help to maintain blood sugar levels. Mothers having gestational diabetes can use ragi/ ragi products instead of other grains as it will help control their blood sugar level.
