Mommies..my baby is getting bored of normal fuds which i was giving him..so i am planning to give him rice as lunch..shld i have to grind rice?what shld be added with rice?he likes to eat in cerelac form..so plz suggest wht to add with rice to make it tasty cerelac?
you can give dal rice curd rice ghee rice pongal sweet version adding jaggery also salty version sambar rice adding different veggies kheer payasam. you can also give poha. avoid giving grinded food even if infants has no teeth they can chew easily with their gums and if baby is breastfeeding then their gums are really strong enough to chew. rice you can give in mashed form. mash cooked rice when it's properly cooked still very hot. hot rice mash easily. for babies add lil extra water to make rice soft. avoid brown rice or basmati rice. prefer short grain unpolished rice which we eat regularly.
i cook rice, moong dal, carrot, beans, 10 whole jeera and pinch of salt in pressure cooker for 4 whistles. Add little more water. Grind it as per baby's age n taste. Add few drops of ghee for flavour n health. My baby is having this from his 7th month. You can also try this. We add different veggie and egg yolk at times to make him feel better. Since he is 1 year old I have started giving fish n chicken in the same rice. He enjoys with fish n egg coz that gives him different taste.
