Before cooking, I soak the millet grains overnight. Soaking grains for 7 hours or overnight is recommended for babies younger than 10 months. After 10 months, soaking for 4-5 hours should be sufficient.
Grains such as whole wheat, millet, rye, quinoa, brown rice, and oats contain phytic acid, which is hard for young babies to digest and may cause tummy upset. Soaking grains before cooking will reduce phytic acid and make grains easier to digest.
I cook my millet porridge in the Seed Lunch Box. For 1 tablespoon of millet, I add about 100ml of filtered water and set the timer to 35 minutes.
Chop, steam, and blend purple carrot and purple sweet potato together. The darker purple cubes are purple carrot.
Then, mix the purple-colored puree with millet together.
