Read Carefully : Ragi porridge is very good for everyone, especially for babies. This can be prepared with jaggery (sweet) and alternatively be served with curd (yogurt). We can start ragi porridge from the 6th month onwards. While introducing any food we should check if it suits the baby or not. In order to check, the other solid foods should be moderated for the day. If you are introducing ragi for baby, start with small quantity (like 1/4 tbsp) and increase it day by day up 2-3 tbsp. Don't feed more ragi as it may cause constipation to the baby. This must be fed only once in a day and if baby gets any irritation or if it doesn't suit, immediately stop feeding (Remember that testing with a very small quantity is absolutely essential).

Important: When ever introducing a new item for baby consult the paediatrician (doctor) first.
