8 easy khichdi recipes

Are you wondering what to feed your child? Or, Is your child on solids and do you want to introduce more healthy and wholesome food to add extra calories and protein to his/her diet? Then there’s no need to look any further. Here’s a list of 8 easy khichdi recipes for babies, toddlers and kids.

What is khichdi?

Khichdi is an easy, simple and nutritive one-pot meal that a mother may prepare in a flash for her child. It is also called a stress-free one-pot meal because of its ease of preparation. This simple yet flavorful dish has marked its existence since the time of the emperors and has come a long way from the royal kitchens of India. 

Usually, khichdi is prepared by a combination of rice and lentils. Ingredients such as vegetables, spices, ghee etc., make it more tasty and nutritious. It’s also a versatile dish, as khichdi can be prepared in a variety of ways. (How dal benefits our health?)

Since it is enjoyed by all ages – children, adults, the sick and the well, men and women, the wealthy and the poor, it is known as comfort food. In addition, more reasons for khichdi,  being called as comfort food is its ease of preparation, digestion and the health benefits it renders. (Healthy & nutritious recipes for kids.)

Benefits of khichdi FOR CHILDREN:

Khichdi is gluten-free, easy to swallow, cook and digest. (What is gluten free diet for kids?) Khichdi is served as an ideal meal for babies because of the following benefits:

  • Rice provides carbohydrates, lentils provide protein, and veggies provide vitamins and fibre, making khichdi a perfect recipe for a growing baby who requires energy and proteins during her first year of life.
  • Gluten-intolerant babies can also consume khichdi.
  • Usually, a spoonful of ghee, which is a natural laxative, is commonly served alongside khichdi. This aids in smoothening the bowel movements in babies. (Homemade ghee can be given to babies once they complete one year of age).

Khichdi recipes for babies can be made entirely of overcooked rice, lentils, and salt, with no spices. Because babies are still learning to chew, a soft diet of overcooked, mushy khichdi can be one of the first solid foods they try. If your infant doesn’t like khichdi right away, try it again a day or two later. It takes time for the child to adapt to any new flavours. Use a pinch of salt as newborns should not be given too much salt or sugar during their first year of life. (What are other solids foods for babies?)

Khichdi recipes for babies can also include oats, sabudana, dalia/ broken wheat, millets, fresh veggies such as carrot, pumpkin, broccoli etc., and greens like spinach and fenugreek with few spices.

Baby feeding schedule: 9 to 12 months old

As your baby completes 9 months of age, He/ she probably moved on from breast milk or formula milk to some different solids. At this tender age they are exploring their preferences and changing their mind from day to day in terms of foods and tastes. Babies really grow fast in the first year of their age and their nutritional needs also change accordingly. They themselves didn’t know their likes and dislikes, thus use to experiment with foods each day. Slowly as they get to know the taste of different food items they develop taste buds. This is the time when you need to make a proper schedule to feeding up baby.

Some babies show more interest in fruits, some may prefer veggies, some like to eat in pureed or mashed form, whether some enjoy chewing or like finger foods more. As it is a growing age baby goes through a lot of physical and mental developmental changes. Feeding up baby according to the planned schedule can help to provide a balanced nutritional diet that not only fills their little stomach but also meet all the required nutrients they need in a day.

As your baby completes 6 months of age, feeding up solids to them becomes important for them, because at this time they need additional nutrients for their growth and development. Around 9- 12 months of age a baby may require approximately 700-900 calories per day.

Never force: Let the baby choose the quantity of food he/she wants to eat. Never force a baby to eat anything. You can only decide what to feed, it’s entirely the baby’s choice how much to eat.         

Self eating: It may be a little messier, but allow your baby to eat with his/her own hands. Just make sure that your baby’s hands are clean as they tend to touch everything at this age.

Attentive: Keep a close check on your baby while he/she is eating. Offer food in small pieces as big ones may choke.

Sitting position: Use an upright position while feeding your baby. Make the baby sit on a high chair or just make sure that he/ she is not in a lying position.

Milk bottle: Never put your baby to sleep with a milk bottle. This can cause dental issues in babies.
