Healthy Nuts Powder for Babies / Nuts Powder for Babies / Health Booster for Babies



FOR MORE BABY FOOD RECIPES, CLICK HERE..

Maha is started her 11th month now. I am looking for new recipes and new healthy foods to include in her diet. I didn't start on cow's milk yet. I should wait for one more month to include that in her diet. This is one amazing health powder which i made and it was such a healthy one. I added only badam and cashews in this, along with that i added roasted gram dal and dry ginger which are so healthy for your babies. I started giving this powder only after 10 months. I will share another version of dry fruit powder which is good for babies after 1 year. 

If you want to make this for older babies. just add some pista, raisans, walnuts, dates to make it more healthy.


This is great as a daily health booster for your babies. You can add a spoonful of this in your babies porridge when you cook it and feed her. This is like magic and maha loves it so much. I add this to my ragi porridge, banana porridge and a new recipe which i will share soon. You can infact add this whatever you make. Just for a idea, check out my baby recipes

  68. Hi Aarati,
    very healthy recipe..
    I am regular follower of your blog.My son is 13 months old. I am preparing dry fruit powder at home from 3-4 months.
    I am adding almonds, pista, cashew , kesar , nutmeg (1-1.5 tea spoon for 100-150gm qty of each nut) , walnut , dry date in that.
    I am adding 1 tsp of powder to his 500ml milk in the morning and boil it for some time. I have to sieve this milk as powder is not so fine and he tries to omit if get particles of powder in milk. I am using this boiled milk for complete day, sometimes left over in next morning's porridge. Is this a correct way to use .. I can not add this in porridge as he don’t swallow it. Also if I am giving it only through the milk then how much should be quantity?? If adding turmeric will help?? as many times he suffers from cough.
