Question: My baby is 5 month 24 days old.i started giving him fruit puree of apple and banana he is enjoying them fully without any allergy and discomfort.Can i give him wheat apple cerelac now?
Cerelac is full of sugar and preservatives i have never introduced it to baby it has no nutrition except making baby fat though this is my personal opinion if you want you can go ahead and introduce but weaning would be much better and easy if done with home made normal family food.
Instead of cerelac i used to prepare cereal at home in small batches though its a lot of work but it ensures health, sharing here if you want you can also give a try and feed the baby..
Home made cereal
Brown Rice-1 cup
Green moong-1/2 cup
Kaala channa-1/4 cup
Step 1: wash and air dry/sun dry ingredients @ one on a cloth (seperately each).
Step 2: once dried dry roast each item (seperately) on a low flame to get a light brown color/slight aroma.
Step 3: dry roast ingredients@two on low flame.
Step 4: grind each item in mixer to get a fine powder.
(sieve to get fine powder and regrind if any granules left)
Step 5: mix all together and store in an airtight container.
As and when you need it, take a little quantity, boil it with water, add ghee depending on your baby's taste.
(Texture and quantity depending on your baby's age)
