Instant Soya and Poha Cereal for babies – TRAVEL FOOD for babies-No need to cook


Healthy and homemade soya and poha cereal for your babies which is high in protein and carb. Helps in weight gaining in babies.

This is my second travel food for babies. My first travel food is poha-cereal. This is very helpful for busy mom’s and while traveling with babies. Need is Instant soya and poha cereal and a flask of hot water, bowl and spoon.

This is a well thought recipe keeping in mind the Protein requirement for Vegetarians. Soya is a boon for vegetarians and hence very widely used in many recipes. Soya when roasted well, and doesn’t need further cooking. Also Thin Poha/Beaten Rice needs very minimal cooking and the same job is done by using piping hot water to make this mix.

This Instant Soya Poha Cereal can be started for babies after 7 months. As babies at this age need only one or two solids maximum per day. on your next travel you can carry a pack of this Instant Soya Poha Cereal Mix, a Flask of Piping Hot Water, a Bowl and a Spoon, and tada… babies food can be just made in a whisk.


On your next Travel with baby take this easy peasy Instant Mix
