Finger Millet

Health-giving super food

Rich source of calcium

Finger millet contains thrice the amount of calcium as milk1 and almost 8 times the amount found in other cereals3. Bioavailability of calcium from meals prepared from finger millet is higher than from other wheat- and sorghum-based meals2

    Suitable weaning food for children

    The high levels of nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins and calcium makes finger millet-based complementary foods appropriate weaning foods for babies.
