OK here some info...

Healthy drinks for Baby

Breast milk is the only food or drink babies need from birth until around six months of age.

•Baby can continue to have breast milk until two years or older.
•At around six months of age she should start to have solid food.
•She should also learn how to drink from a cup.
•The best drink to give your baby, apart from breast milk, is cooled boiled water.
•If your baby is not breastfed, she should have an infant formula until she is around one year old.
•From one year old, Baby can be given cows’ milk or powdered milk.
•Baby does not need to have a ‘follow on’ infant formula. Spend the money on healthy foods instead.
•If Baby uses a bottle, fill it only with expressed breast milk or infant formula. If the weather is hot, you can give her water from a bottle or cup.
•Don’t let Baby fall asleep with a bottle – even if it is formula – or she can get ear infections.

Some drinks are not good for Baby
•Cows’ milk or powdered milk
•Tea (Don’t give Baby tea to drink. Tea can give her weak blood.)
(Do not give Baby cows’ milk or powdered milk before she is one year old)
This milk can:
• give Baby weak blood
• hurt her kidneys.


Sugary drinks
Don’t give Baby sugary drinks like soft drink, fruit juice, cordial, sports drinks or energy drinks.

•Sugary drinks will rot Baby’s teeth.

Looking after Baby’s teeth
•Don’t clean teats or dummies by putting them in your mouth. This will pass germs from your mouth to Baby.
•Don’t add honey to Baby’s drink, food or dummy.
•In fact, try not to use a dummy at all. For more information contact your local health worker
Note: in this pamphlet we talk about Baby as ‘she’ but all the information in here also applies to boys!
•To keep Baby’s teeth clean wipe a soft cloth over her teeth and gums or you can use a small, soft toothbrush very gently (Baby doesn’t need toothpaste).

Encourage everyone in your family to clean their teeth to help protect them from tooth decay

Hai Chitra,

You can give rice, dals, baked potato (not fried), idli, dosa, roti, but everything in small quantities.

You can also give health mix. Let me tell you the recipe.

Take 1 kg of ragi. Clean it well. Soak it overnight. Then the next day, drain all the water. Take a clean white cloth and put the soaked ragi in it and tie it well. Keep aside for 2 days. Now, the ragi would be sprouted. Now, fry this ragi in a kadai, plainly (pachai vaasanai pogum varai). Make this into flour( maavu machine il).

Now, take some water in a utensil. Put 2 or 3 spoons of ragi flour. Add some sugar or very little salt , just for taste. Mix it well without break. Now , the healthy and delicious ragi koozh is ready and you can give this to your son using a spoon.( it need not be made as liquid at this age).

After 1 year , you can add other grains also, like, groundnut, badam, wheat, jowar, barley etc.

Keep one thing in mind. Whatever new food , whenever introduced to the child, it should be given in very small quantities. And if he is having fever, please do not give these kind of foods, since it will be difficult for him to digest.

Hi chitra, some of our friends had shared their recipe, here is the method how i prepare for Tamizh.

Jowar – 500 gm
Wheat – 500 gm
Red Rice (Rice) - 500 gm
Fried gram – 300 gm

Flour Preparation

  1. Fry all the ingredients one by one until the aroma comes.
  2. Allow it to cool and make it as a fine powder in Machine. If the quantity is low you can even grind in mixer, but I didn’t tried personally.
  3. Store it in air tight container.
You can also soak these ingredients (Ragi, Bajra, Jowar and Green gram) overnight, next day remove it from the soaked water and tie it in a clean cloth. Allow it to germinate once germinated, dry it in sun for 3 days and then continue the same above process what is said in point #1.

Preparing Health drink:

  1. Mix 2 tsp of flour with 1/2 cup of water stir it continuously in a low flame till the mixture becomes thick.
  2. Once done remove it from stove, add a cup of milk and 2 tsp of sugar or jaggery and mix it well.
  3. You can serve either hot or cold.

Give the highly nutritious and healthiest drink to kids, they love the taste..!!!
