Barley is a protein-rich cereal that will do wonders for your baby. This nutritious weaning food is also easy and simple to make and will not take up too much of your time during this busy and stressful timeframe, when your baby demands a lot of your attention.

You can start with plain Barley Water, when you begin weaning your baby, and once the child is 10 to 12 months old, you can start flavouring it with jaggery, if your paediatrician approves.

Nice healthy natural recipe for babies. Crucially there is no sugar added.
