          Rice-mash / Rice-cereal is the first food that should be given to your infant. Reason , it’s easy to digest and is soothing.


  • 1/4 cup white rice (well cooked)
  • 3/4 cup of boiled milk

Note : If it for the first time, make it very thin. The rice to milk ratio should be 1:4.


Take milk in a thick bottom vessel, add rice to this and cook for about 10- 15 mins(or until the milk is fully absorbed) on low flame.

                                  Allow to cool and mash it/ puree
