and morover i am still feeding my baby and i will upto 2 yrs. Dont worry... just give him foods like khichdi aand then add Tadka dal(thodi c) for changing flavor. It helps in my case. Make him taste everything. Pulao, veg dalia, Stuffed parantha, And make him eat whatever is being cooked for other people in your house and dont give him options like if he dont eat parantha u would make rie. Dont do this. Wait for him and give him again after sometime.

Hi Sirisha ! From my experience i would say babies need time to develop taste for anything. You would be like your baby isnt eating anything except breast milk. Try to give him creative food and remember never force feed him. Dont make him eat where there are distractions like tv or some other person. Chose a calm place and big thing dont get annoyed when he is not eating. He is a toddler. Mood swings are on and at this age he is more into other activities. Give him fruits and if he is having dosa or idli then dont worry they are healthy.. !

Hi Samar, It might be a good idea not to start your child off on any strong flavours so early. Roohafza is very high on sugar and once the child develops a taste for such high sweetness, it might be difficult to tone it down. But all said, if you can limit the quantities and ensure it doesn't become a habit, there may not be a harm.

Hi Samar, I agree with Taruna here. It is better to give children healthy things and start them young. You can flavour milk with elaichi powder, dal chini powder, tulsi leaves, fresh fruits or fruit purees (strawberry etc. ) There are enough recipes available on making badam sharbat at home, strawberry syrup, etc. It will take effort to make them, but it is going to be worth it.

Hi Samar, nothing in small quantities is bad for children, but you need to consider a few things 1) how often do you want to serve roohafza milk and how difficult will it be to break a habit, in case he gets so used to it that he refuses regular milk? 2)how far is it ok to expose a child to things that are tasty, but not necessarily healthy? 2) Eventually all children are exposed to all sorts of food, so we need to help cultivate a taste in them for healthy and fresh stuff. These broad questions might help you take a decision.

Hi Samar, I always prefer to give healthy food items to my daughter. My daughter does not like to drink plain milk. So I have given her many things with milk like oats, cornflakes, sooji, sabotdana, rice, chikoo, banana, mango. I never added white sugar. I always use gud as sweetener. I have started all these when she was 10 months old.

Hi Samar! It's perfectly fine to add Roohafza to milk. As it already has sugar in it, please avoid any additional sugar. u can make the child try different flavours like khus, chocolate powder, bournvita, rose, badam etc. These can be made at home too. Or milk can be given as rice or suji kheer, custard, puddings etc.
