Ragi Porridge – a miracle food for people of all ages. My kids have been fed this porridge as part of their weaning meals. Ragi porridge is also a quick breakfast option for people of all ages and considering that it is rich in calcium, iron, soluble fibre & vitamin D, it is one of the healthiest foods to include in your regular diet.
Start giving ragi porridge after introducing Rice and moong dal. Ragi can be given from the 6th month onwards.
