Barley is a protein rich cereal and is very good for your baby when weaning begins. Flavour the barley water with jaggery which is a rich source of iron. Also squeeze some lemon juice into it to provide the much needed vitamin c that protects your baby from coughs and colds.

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