Dal ka panni or dal water as weaning food

Dal ka paani or dal water as weaning food

Dal ka paani or dal water as weaning food does not give much nutrition except some heat stable water soluble vitamins, it has no carbs, proteins or fats needed for the infants development. Instead one can give mashed dal or combine dal with rice or roti.

Start with 2 teaspoons per meal (start with one meal only) along with 800 ml of  breast milk. If your child is comfortable with it and seems to enjoy the new taste then it can be increased gradually from 1 to 3 mealsne.

When your little one is 4-5 months old it is best to give clear liquids and once when baby is 6 months old you can start with thin pureed foods. So your 6 months baby will have clear liquids plus pureed foods.

Are oats good for kids

Are oats good for kids?

I have seen some mothers start weaning with oats or even continue later on …specially morning time as kids don't drink milk so a way to give milk too.....please oats are not for kids, yes oats are good in fibre.

🍎They can deplete the body of vital minerals

🍎They may bloat their small tummies and kids may feel full after eating small quantities and may not feel hungry for quite some time.

🍎This is a stage when their nutritional needs are higher we need to feed them nutrient dense foods not just fibre and fill them up.

Similarly a home cooked usual breakfast like paratha, poha, upma, idli, uttapas are better with probiotics and other nutrients like proteins,  vitamins which are systems are used to eating....

A balanced home cooked meal consisting of cereals ,pulses or dals , milk and its products along with fruit and vegetables is good enough to meet the requirement.
