Health Drink

No, no I ain't giving out the ingredients of Boost/Bournvita in here. Its just a simple home made HEALTHy DRINK. As kids, me and my bro used to find reasons to not drink this but eventually got used to drinking it like any other health drinks out there in the market. To avoid my son finding reasons ;), I started giving him this drink right from his 8th month :). 
Corinder seeds - 1 cup
Cumin seeds - 1/2 cup
Fenugreek seeds - 1/4 cup
Wheat(optional) - 1/2 cup
Almonds(optional) - 1/2 cup
1. Roast all the ingredients individually in low flame. Roast wheat till it starts splattering.
2. Powder all the ingredients and store it in an air tight container.
3. For best results add powder to boiling milk and strain it before giving it to your kid.

You don't have to simply take my word that this is a health drink. I have put forth some facts.

Coriander seeds - Good source of dietary fiber, iron, magnesium and helps in digestion.
Fenugreek seeds - Excellent source of minerals like copper, potassium, calcium, iron, selenium, zinc, manganese, magnesium and source of vital vitamins that are essential for optimum health.
Cumin seeds - Known to increase digestion power, contains essential oils, contains good amount of B-complex vitamins.
Almonds - Rich source of energy and nutrients.
Wheat - Not sure if the details are necessary because you can call wheat as the base foundation of nourishment.
Hope your kid enjoys drinking this :) Good luck.
