Manna Ragi Rich For Babies – Product Review


Manna Ragi Rich

I remember during my college days , Amma used to give us ragi porridge . Yes those morning hours , when I used to rush to college skipping breakfast , she used to offer me a glass of ragi porridge in thin watery consistency so that I could drink and run. Times changed , now I am making ragi porridge for my daughter , though not in watery consistency. Ragi was started by me from Anshika’s 8th month . I was introduced to Manna Ragi Rich Powder then.

WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS ? Yes absolutely.

MY RATING : 5/5.

Since I Workingnot able to feed BM during day time.. I am thinking of starting this manna raagi mix now. What would you suggest other than this for his health… Note he already takes appLe pumpkin banana carrots and occasionally avacado all this in puree form… Thank you

    • Samaya, give him any foods that he accepts. No force feeding is required though. If he doesn’t take rice or dal its completely fine. Use wheat products or other flours when he reaches 8 months.

    • Debashish,

      Babies do have constant weight for 3-4 months which is known as failure to thrive. Its completely normal as they start putting on weight after a particular time. Dont worry, keep providing food and breast milk. His weight will definitely increase.

  7. Hi Sangeetha, have a great time a head.

    I have 9 months baby boy, as we plan to add this manna mix in his diet chat.

    As of now, I’m giving him a (MMS milk substitution) instead of Mother milk and give Ceralac twice a day.

    In noon time, give him a cup of mixture (rice /carrot/dal) in semi liquid form.

    He is looking lean & his weight is 7+ kg.

    Hello sangeetha.. how are you? I have a 5months old baby boy. He is totally on formula feed now. From when can I start weaning for him? Shall I start giving him ragi rich from now?

    • Hi Veena ,

      Its always better not to start solids before 6 months of age. You can start with purees and liquids at 5 months that too with the consent of your pediatrician. You can start weaning by 11 months. Ragi rich is better to start from 8th month or so in plain water or formula ..

  10. Hi ma’am,

    hiii sageetha
    how r u?
    whole cream milk means formula milk?or ny other?pls clear this?
    i hav read in many articles but couldnt figure it out.

    • Hi Reshma , am doing good.

      No da whole cream milk means whole fat milk that we get from outside , like we get milma milk in packets in kerala.

      The whole fat in it helps babies for their fat requirements. Hope you are clear now.
