    Today i made porridge for my 6month old Jeremy using homemade banana powder. I prepared the porridge in palm sugar(kalkand) water. I didnt like the taste at all coz it had the raw taste(all unripe banana have) though it was sweet. Jeremy never ate it as well. I am yet to try it with milk. I hope it tastes better with milk.Is there something I am missing while making the porridge? Please suggest

    I have always made porridge with milk and felt that Joshua liked the aroma in banana porridge. Was the banana dried enough? Dry it until, it becomes crispy like a banana chip. Palm sugar is a good alternate for sugar. You can substitute with honey (however, not recommended for babies less than 1 yr).

    Shailaja, I would advice you to prepare the powder yourself than relying on packed food.

    This banana should not be ripped?

    Only raw banana is suitable to be dried and powdered. If you prefer ripe one, you can try feeding it directly as a mashed fruit.

    Fruits as such arent advisable if the baby has fever and cold. Otherwise, a fair intake of fruits, vegetables and cereals in addition to milk is highly recommended. However, I woudl always advice you to consult with your paedriatrician before you decide.
