Brief Answer:
Relevant procedure suggested.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir/Madam.

I understand your concern.

You possibly have to prepare Nestum Rice stage 1. This is for 6-24 months baby.

First and foremost buy Nestle's Nestum Rice stage 1 locally available.

After opening this pack, the content should immediately be transferred to an empty, clean, dry & airtight container. After each use, replace lid tightly & store in a cool & dry place.


1.Boil milk. Allow it to cool down.

2.Pour milk into baby's bowl and add NESTUM.

3.Stir until the pap is smooth. Feed your baby with a clean spoon.

4.Also, Ingredients like fruit juices and mashed fruit, cooked and pureed spinach, boiled and mashed dals, cooked and mashed vegetables and curds, can be added to already prepared NESTUM, to make nutritious feeds for the babies.

Post your further queries if any,
Thank you.
