Celerac is quite safe for six month baby. The important nutrients that cerelac have is Calcium; protein; Vitamin D; Vitamin A and Vitamin C; Iron; Zinc and it also contains omega 3 and 6. If your babies don't have khichdi or suji kheer, try giving them different flavors of celerac. There are many in the market, you can try with Cerelac Shishu Aahaar (wheat rice moong dal khichdi ), Rice, Wheat, wheat apple. You can even try a few other brands like wholesum foods, Pristine 1st bites, Galpu. You can find these products online at www. firstcry. com/formula-and-supplements/2/79. Hope your kids will the taste.

Soak 1/4 th cup Moong, Chana and arhar dal along with 1/2 cup of rice separately for half an hour. dry roast 6-7 almonds and cashew nut. Then roast all the above cereals. U can also add Dalia( broken wheat). After roasting all above grind them as fine powder. If u want u can add powdered sugar into this. Or else u can jaggery at the time serving. For preparing add two - three spoon of powder in a bowl boil with water for 5-7 minutes then when it turns into paste consistency add milk. Before serving u can add jaggery.

Hi neha, when my daughter was about that age I gave her Mixed vegetables puree. Like a small piece of potato two three peas small piece of carrot and tomato then pressure cook it then blend it with a blender until smooth paste add water accordingly and add salt and a few drops of ghee... it tasted like pav bhaji and my daughter enjoyed it.

Cereal can be accompanied with homemade foods. Although it is very convenient for feeding baby outside home. I have prepared homemade Cerelac by soaking and roasting different grains. My 9 months child is able to digest that easily. U can try it too.

It is acceptable to give cerelac to babies but alongwith home food. You can keep it as a night meal. Do feed your children home food as it is true that cerelac causes constipation. Moreover it is artificial food. it is always the best to feed your children natural food that is fresh. :)
