Yummy teething biscuits that help the baby ease the discomfort of teething? Yes! You heard us right. However, most biscuits in the market are made with refined flour and sugar and that is not good for health. They might also contain other preservatives that you would not want to give to your child. Ragi biscuits for babies are your perfect solution for a tussle between your child’s palate and your determination to give them only healthy food. Packed with the goodness of ragi, these biscuits are rich in iron and calcium. These biscuits can be enjoyed by kids of all ages as the crunchy and tasty biscuits are not limited to only babies or toddlers.
Teething starts at the age of 8-9 months and ragi biscuits for babies is an apt snack to give in order to fulfill their nutritional needs. With excess drooling irritation and discomfort, handing over ragi cookies to the teething baby can be an ideal solution. This is the time when your little one will start to learn eating techniques like biting and chewing as well. The chances of an improvement in fine motor skills is also highly probably at this stage.
The ragi biscuits recipe is my little one’s favorite. I make this often for her and she loves it. I thought of sharing it with you.
My grandmother’s ragi cookies recipe has been working for every single new mother in the family. The other day I looked up on the internet to check on ragi benefits and realized that ragi biscuits for babies is one of the most popular teething foods amongst South Indian moms. Infact the benefits of ragi are worth calling this traditional grain a super grain! One of the best benefits of starting ragi early on in life is that while a 6-months old maybe be breastfeeding, but that alone may not ensure sufficient iron in the child’s body, so ragi is a good way to restore depleted iron levels, especially at an early start.
Did you know ragi benefits?: It has 3 times more calcium than a glass of milk!
The health benefits of ragi needn’t stop when a child reaches toddlerhood either. Many children have severe calcium deficiency and ragi is a great way to solve this problem.
