Both of them are good and can be given at different stages of child development. If you are in the USA you can get most of the ingredients in whole foods or sprouts where you get bulk grains and you can buy in little quantities. As we are using lot of ingredients we need only need 100 gms each.

1. Ragi … you can use ragi powder if you don’t get the whole ragi

3. Maize
4. Jowar
5. Wheat
6. Fried gram
7. Brown rice.. I preffer brown rice you can use the normal ones
8. Green gram
9. Soya beans
10. corn

all in equal quantities say 100 gms then the below items you need in less quanties say 50gms
11. Sago
12. Barley
13. almond / badam
14. pistachios
15. cashew / kaju
16. peanuts
17. cardamom for flavor just a few. Its optional and can be avoided.
Dry fry the above all the items and grind them fine and store it in an air tight container.
