In today’s post I give you a step by step method to make home made dry fruit powder mix for toddlers and kids.

When I started giving cow’s milk for my daughter Tejaswini, my pediatrician suggested a very popular dry fruit powder mix brand available in the market. But as a parent who believes in everything home made for baby, I planned to make the dry fruit powder mix at home. This mix helped a lot during our train journeys as it was pretty easy to mix with milk.

I found the combination of nuts powdered at home much better than the products available in the market. Nuts contain good fat, Vitamins, minerals and anti oxidants. I prefer giving her this dry fruit powder mixed milk before bed time at night.

Benefits of Home Made Dry Fruit Powder Mix for Toddlers and Kids

  • Filling for the tummy : My daughter used to get up at least 3 times at night earlier. After I started giving this milk at night, she rarely gets up more than once ensuring a good night sleep for us too.
  • Can be added to porridge, home made cerelac, vegetable mash, raw banana porridge etc to increase the nutritional value

Too much of nuts is not good for babies or adults. So this powder mixed milk once a day is fine.

I made the powder mix of four nuts with a little dry ginger. Dry ginger will help in easy digestion and relieves gas.

You can also add cardamom powder to this dry fruit powder mix . It will add a unique aroma to this mix.
