First Foods - Banana Treat
Ex-medico, food blogger, food enthusiast from Melbourne. Find more recipes on my personal blog
Newborn babies know only mother's milk when they are hungry. Doctors generally advise to start including external foods once the child is 6 months old. Once such baby food is mashed banana with milk.
Since the baby's taste buds are familiar with milk, this preparation is easily accepted by them. Also banana gives energy and is a good source of minerals.
Approx 1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup mashed banana (check that it is well ripened)
1/2 tsp sugar
Take milk in the feeding bowl and add sugar. Mix well.
Let it stand for a few minutes so that the sugar dissolves completely. (Adding sugar is completely optional)
Mix in the mashed banana.
Feed your little one this banana treat, which they will surely enjoy.
