I don’t believe in numbers because it is all about the baby being healthy and active. But this looks interesting as it contains all the healthy stuff. Should try it out. Thank you for sharing Neha. 🙂

Neha Sharma · 13/11/2017 at 4:33 PM

This is the superfood, I think baby’s first food can be this mix porridge around 7 months. I skipped the market bought cerelac and introduced homemade cerelac which was something like this only. I can’t say about the weight gain, but this is definitely healthy and nutritious for babies.
