at what age can i start giving sabudana to my baby?
Idea for giving solid foods should commence minimum of 6 months but its great that if they should have it approx 1 year
You should only introduce solids after six months. As for sabudana, it’s best to introduce it after your baby turns nine months. It is also a bit heavy for the baby to digest so best to start around n

what is more important to you - a higher quality of lifestyle and more money, or more love and time with lesser money?
i will definitely be happier with lesser money but more time and love spent with my partner. i have consciously taken the decision to not work now, because i felt that it was taking up a lot of tim

just for fun - when you were pregnant, did you actually look at cute images so that your baby would also look like that?
nope! I watch just because they are cute and not because I believe in it.
Yes I did see because my husband and mother in law asked me to. I didn't really want to but it did no harm.

do you add garlic to your toddler's foods? my 3 year old still refuses to eat if she finds it is there in her food.
yes i do add garlic to almost anything i cook. in fact, in any dish that i make with multiple vegetables, i always add garlic.
