Why Is Ragi Powder Good For Babies?

Dear Mumma,

As your little one achieves yet another milestone! We know you’re feeling a combination of excitement, worry, unpreparedness, and anticipation. We know what you feel. We also know that feeding is a daunting task. So, are you experimenting enough with food? Each baby is different, so firstly you need a lot of patience to try and find out what works for you baby.

We are here to help you!

Are you looking for healthy, yummy options that ‘ought to be’ packed with nutrients? Ragi is a wonder grain and makes nutritious food for babies.

Did you know that Ragi (and ragi powder) contains more calcium than any other cereal?

Yes! Indeed and even more than milk! Besides, Ragi powder can help strengthen those baby bones? It’s also high in fiber and can keep your baby’s tummy full for a long- a long time. Isn’t that great?

About 5 months ago, during Onam, we prepared a special delicacy using sprouted ragi cereal/powder and a lot of mothers actually appreciated it because they could serve it as porridge to their babies.

We thought of doing a quick recap of that recipe made from ragi powder which is a mix of different ingredients, each having its own health benefits (look at the image below if you don’t believe us). Adding these to your child's meal plan will ensure they get all their vitamins & nutrients in these bowls.
