Hi,

I have 8 month old babay. I heard that \";Ragi\";, south indian flour, is good for baby. It helps in developing the mind.

If anyone knows how to prepare some items for 8 month old from Ragi, please reply as soon as possible.

Thank You.

you can make ragi malt and feed 8 month old baby. It's very simple. rost ragi and make powder. Mix with formula or milk. add some suger if desired. You can add apple sauce or some gerber fruit which is better than suger and feed with spoon.

Hi Guys!

Each of you have given excellent recipes of ragi feed. Although the style of preparation varies from place to place, it is an undisputed fact that ragi is a very nutritious dish. My son's paedatrician recommended ragi halwa as the first semi solid for him.
But the best mix for ragi feed, is ragi, wheat, rice, pulses and dals, all powdered well and sieved properly. Cook it with milk, see to it that ragi is cooked very well, other wise it can cause tummy upsets, add a spoon of ghee and a little salt/sugar. But do remember to feed him lukewarm water, since it helps in digestion.

Hi,
My family has been drinking ragi porridge both kids and adults alike.
It is very simple and easy to make.

If you can get the ragi powdered.
Take one cup of ragi powder and stir it in a cup of water.

Stir well all the skins will float to the top. Pour away the that part and you will be left with the goodness of the ragi flour.(the skins will be too hard for your little one to digest)

Add more water about one and a half cups and boil it well until thickened.

Add milk, pinch of salt (optional) and little sugar. (Keep the use of refined sugar/products to the minimum)

You can make it thin enough to feed through a feeding bottle or thick enough to serve by spoon-fulls.

Try this simple recipe you won't be dissappointed.

hi ,
buy ragi and add soya bean and dals and pulses and wheat and rice in the quantity that ur kid can digest keep ragi more and soya less as it can taste bitter .wash and dry them seperately as per each category.e.g ragi and pusles,wheat and soya should be washed and sprouted for a day and then dry them in sun .wash the dals and rice and dry them directly.Roast them seperately as ragi can get burned and rice takes time.the sprouted once can be roasted together.them mix them together and give it to the chakki for flour.use this with water milk as mper your requirement.quantity depends onb your child.it is very good for the kid.my daughter is 31/2 years nowe and i still give it to her .this is my recipe please try and reply to me .bye and take care.

Importance : Since Calcium content is more, it is good for strong bones and teeth. Also aids in blood clotting including proper functioning of muscles and nerves.

For Babies : In India, mostly Nachni is given during Summer Season. Nachni kheer or paste, if given daily, increase apepitite and helps in easy motion.

Our daughter, Akshada is 8 months old. Not daily, but alternate days, I give her Nachni Kheer (mostly morning). I have also started other food including vegetable soup and juice. She loves eating, if prepared with different taste.

Preparation : In Morning, Small quantity (1 teaspoon) of Nachni has to be soaked in water. Evening, alongwith same water, soaked nachni has to grinded. Filter it using little cotton cloth so that only white milk is left in bowl. Keep white milk whole night undistured so that white residue collects at bottom. Next morning, thrown the water. White paste which remains, has to be boiled with fresh water till it turns to sticky paste. Add little jaggery or milk or sugar or salt, depends. And then give to Baby. They will really enjoy eating it.

My kids are in their teens and I still give them a ragi drink in the evenings. They were started on this since they were six months old. I buy fried ragi powder. For your baby, you could mix 3/4 tablespoon of ragi powder with 1/2 teaspoon of wheat powder in 1/4 cup milk. Meantime, boil 3/4 cup milk. When boiled, immediately add the mixture of ragi powder and wheat powder. Keep stirring. A little bit of scrapped jaggery and a little ghee could be added for taste. Good luck with your little one.

My son is 16 months old and I feed him ragi. In the begining kids might get constipated or pass stools more often. After some time kids will get used to. You can feed Ragi as breakfast or feed in evening. Not for lunch or dinner. Try alternate days. Now days you get mixture of ragi, dhal, nuts, rice, etc., for some healthy powder. you can try that too. Good stuff. Do you get macaroni and cheese in Sydney? You can try that. Even my son doesn't have that many teeth. It is easy to swallow. Also you can soak bread in milk and add little sugar. That is also a best meal. Hope this helps

I have a 15 month old daughter who is a pretty fussy eater and to top it all she has still not got any teeth as yet. If I give her anything dry or any of our food, she chokes after a bite or two and vomits everything out. Hence I have to cook for her separately and make sure her khichdi is cooked till soft, bread is soaked in milk first and then fed, sooji kheer is wettish etc. etc.

I was recently told to surf this site and I have read a lot about Raagi. Finally managed to pick up ragi powder from an Indian store out here. I tried out one of the recepies but my daughter passed quiet a few stools the next morning, it seemed like she had excreted the entire raagi that I fed her, hence I got afraid. So before I start preparing it again, I want to know if it is too late to start giving my baby this and have the following queries, since after reading all the different messages on ragi I am very very confused:

Is ragi powder ok or do I have to get seeds becoz seeds are not available here?

When do u feed ragi - morning/afternoon night or anytime or only during summer or winter, cause we are having winter in Sydney now?

How much do u feed a 15m old baby and is one bowlful considered to be a good meal in place of khichdi etc. or is it just a snack?

Do I have to feed it to her everyday so that she benefits from it and wont it become too repetitive?

I read Selma pinto's message on giving her kids raagi drink, how does one prepare that, could somebody please help?

Does eating raagi lead to a lot of bowels the next day, and if so, is it considered to be ok?

Lastly could anybody pls tell me how to prepare veg upama soft enough to feed my toothless daughter, I am really desperate to try diff dishes so that she starts eating and since I have nobody to ask, I am hoping some kind soul will revert back to me with any recepies they can help with.

Thanking u all in advance.

I have a daughter who is 20 month old. As far as I know a child that young is given sprouted ragi and not ragi powder,well finally it has to be grounded. take whole ragi.Soak it overnight then tie it well and allow it to sprout.Then dry it in the sun .Once dried roast it with little ghee.You can add sprouted wheat and sprouted moong dal at this point ,ofcourse these also have to be dried.You can also add some almonds if you wish.Once roasted grind it well.Add milk or water to this to make a fine paste.Adding salt or sugar is your choice.In all it requires 1 and 1/2 day of preparation.Hope this helps.

I have 11 month old baby and I feed ragi which is not sprouted. I just bought it from an indian store. Since it is not well grinded, I filter it with normal tea filter. My baby loves it. Usually they say sprouted once are healthier. I live in US and I cannot sprout and grind. Also in US, Doctors don't recommend cow's milk for babies less than a year old.

Take 2 spoon of ragi powder and mix with little water first to prevent from lumps. Then add some more water and cook under moderate heat. Keep stirring. The consistency will be like a paste after it got cooked (from watery to think paste). Add little salt. Hope this helps.
