This immunity boosting raab is not only good for babies and toddlers but also good for adults. You can also use wheat instead of bajra, since wheat also has iron, thiamine, niacin, calcium, vitamin B6 and so many other nutrients. Please make sure that your baby has already tried bajra or wheat using the 3 day rule. Raab is the best food to serve babies during a cold. It can be given to Babies below one year as porridge. It’s best to avoid jaggery and milk when offering to babies over one year.
