Tarla Dalal    The best age to start weaning is after 6 months. So please consult your paediatrician before you begin early weaning at around 5 months. Also before serving this khichdi to your little one, individually serve rice and moong dal and check out for allergies if any for a week. After the baby has got used to each individually, then begin with a small portion of this khichdi.
