Whole Wheat Milk Porridge for Babies - Godhumai Paal Koozh Recipe

Whole Wheat Milk Porridge for Babies

This Whole Wheat Porridge  can be started once the baby completes 6 months.We usually start with ragi porridge made with extracted ragi milk as in this post, you can try this porridge too as its highly nutritious.I still remember the day when I first introduced this porridge to gugu,he had a smiling face as he loved this porridge a lot.Do try this for your baby.

If your baby is allergic to wheat then take your doctors advice before introducing wheat.

I usually feed this koozh with jaggery syrup or karupatti syrup.
