Did you know NAVARA RICE can be the best baby food for your child? 

Navara rice is considered as Rasayana and a rejuvenator in Ayurveda. Navara helps improve immunity and has various medicinal properties; that's why it is priced high in Ayurveda. Baby food made from Navara rice is a traditional Kerala recipe that is nutrient-rich and easy to digest.


Navara rice, also known as Njavara or Kerala Navara rice, or Shashtika rice, is a variety of rice grown in Kerala. It is considered to be Rasayana (Rejuvenator) in Ayurveda, and it is used for making many traditional dishes like Karkkidakakanji / Marunnukanji (Navara gruel), Navara palkanji/ Navara Milk Porridge, etc. The rich nutrient value makes this rice easy to digest; hence it can be eaten by people with a weak digestive system or those who suffer from gastric problems.


When preparing food for your baby, remember that babies need a lot of energy and nutrients to grow. However, they aren't able to digest complex foods yet. This is why baby food is made from simple, easily digested ingredients.

The most important thing to remember when buying food for your little one is to be safe. That means avoiding potentially harmful additives like preservatives or colorings and ensuring the food doesn't have too many additives, as these can upset a baby's stomach or cause allergic reactions.


Baby food made with traditional products is better than commercial baby foods because they contain no preservatives, artificial flavors, colors, etc. Navara rice is recommended for babies who have completed 6 months (this should be cooked well and made into a paste/porridge with milk). It can also be used as a booster for underweight babies.

It contains essential amino acids that help your baby grow strong bones, muscles, and organs at this early stage of life. It's involved in many body functions, including the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the proper functioning of the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. Navara rice helps to improve immunity with its rich supply of micro-nutrients such as Vitamin B1, calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium. And Vitamin C in it is necessary for the growth, development, and repair of all body tissues. 

This traditional Kerala recipe for babies is made from Navara rice cooked with coconut milk or regular milk, spices (optional), and jaggery syrup (an unrefined cane sugar). It's easy to digest due to its soft texture, so it's the perfect first food for your little one!

Baby food prepared with Navara rice has the following nutritional value:

  • It contains minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, etc.
