Barley is a protein rich cereal and is very good for your baby when weaning begins. Flavour the barley water with jaggery which is a rich source of iron. Also squeeze some lemon juice into it to provide the much needed vitamin C that protects your baby from coughs and colds.


1 tablespoon barley
2 tablespoons jaggery grated
1 tablespoon lemon juice


1. Pressure cook the barley with 2 cups of water and the jaggery.
2. Wash, cool and liquidise it in a blender.
3. Strain and allow to cool completely.
4. Add the lemon juice.
Mix well and serve lukewarm.
