Health Mix Recipe for Babies (From 10 Months to 5 Years)
Hi friends! Today, I am going to share a health mix recipe which is high in nutrition and good for babies from ten months onwards. This health mix recipe can be made into porridge for your little one and will keep him satiated for longer. It has all the cereals, nuts and spices which are good for baby’s bones, growth and development. Since it is a porridge, it is easily digestible for the baby. This health mix is packed with carbohydrates and proteins which are vital for the growing baby. This healthy mix porridge helps underweight babies gain weight substantially. I usually feed this to my baby first thing in the morning. What’s great is that this porridge can be eaten by adults and is good for breastfeeding mothers too.
