    Hi Geeta,

    You havent mentioned me your height.So I cannot tell your ideal body weight.

    The best exercise I suggest is to walk for 30- 40 minutes daily. You will surely lose the extra flab very easily and tone up too.

    Even yoga is very good as it does not need any instruments or weights. It can help you lose weight and tone as well and can be done any where. All you will need is a nice mat.

    Good luck and let me know the results!!!

    Sanjana – excellent post. I’ve been trying very hard to steer people away from white bread as it seems like the biggest problem that is contributing to obesity these days.

    This is a great site, and keep up the great work.

      Hi I do not know the recipe for making whole grain bread as I have never thought of making it. Find it easier to pick it up from a supermarket. Rava can be included. Buy whole or thick rava as it is more nutritious. At this age, thin vegetable soups, dals soups, seasonal fruits juices can be given. I suggest citrus fruit juices and do not forget to give soups which have green leafy vegetables. Your baby’s iron stores in the body will start decreasing hence add greens. Do not over-dilute as this will decrease the nutritional value. Rava kheer with milk and jaggery, ragi kheer, rice kheer can be given. The cereal can depend on your staple diet. Other than porridges, starchy vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, yams, sweet potatoes can be given. do not forget to add fats such as ghee, butter or oil in the food. Avocados are very good as they contain good fats and this can be prepared along with milk. It can become a complete meal with carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
      Try out these and let me know. Contact me for further advice.

    hi Sanjana,

    great post.. good to see people from Manipal doing good here :)
    I have a small question. People say that too much of bread is not good for health. What is the optimal quantity that one could have in a day?? And if too much of bread is not good for health then how come Roti, which is an irreplaceable part of indian diet, is good for our health??
