Biscuits are one of the favorite snacks that kids like to rejoice over. However, most biscuits in the market are made with refined flour which is not good for health. They might also contain sugar and other preservatives that you would not want to give your child. Ragi biscuits for babies are your perfect solution for a tussle between your child’s palate and your determination to give them only healthy food. Packed with the goodness of ragi, these biscuits are rich in iron and calcium. These biscuits can be enjoyed by kids of all ages as the crunchy and tasty biscuits are not limited to only babies or toddlers.
Teething starts at the age of 8-9 months and your little one may drool and become irritable at times. This is the time when your little one will start to learn eating techniques like biting and chewing. Therefore it's important to keep a close check as to what to feed your babies during this time.
The Ragi Biscuits recipe is my little one's favorite. I make this often for her and she loves it. I thought of sharing it with you.
For ages, ragi has been a popular choice among Indian mothers when it comes to their baby’s first foods. Ragi or finger millet is full of nutrients and has many health benefits attached to it. Breastfeeding alone may not ensure sufficient iron in the child’s body, so ragi is a good way to restore depleted iron levels.
The health benefits of ragi needn’t stop when a child reaches toddlerhood either. Many children have severe calcium deficiency and ragi is a great way to solve this problem.
