Q. Hi Ma, I have just started my baby on cow’s milk, but do not want to add sugar to her milk. She does not like unsweetened milk, what can I do ?
Ans. Hi, You sweeten the milk using a number of natural or healthy sweeteners. Heat a ½ litre of baby’s milk in a pan. Add half a cup of water to it so that it does not thicken too much for the baby upon boiling. Take a fresh date (khajoor) and chop it into small pieces. Add it to the milk. Bring it to boil and let it simmer for 4-5 minutes. Strain the milk using a fine strainer. Remove the dates. You can eat it or add it to some food. The baby will not ask for sugar after this. She will also get the goodness of dates. If you do not have fresh dates available, you can also use dried date (chhuhara) instead.
