Simple traditional technologies like chapati making, popping, flaking and vermicelli extrusion were employed for formulating weaning foods from blends of cereals/millets and legumes. The weaning foods had protein efficiency ratio ranging from 2.6 to 2.8 and were acceptable to children. The cooked paste viscosity of the weaning foods was high and could be reduced to low levels by inclusion of 5 % barley malt powder in the formulations. Production of these weaning foods at household, community or factory level is practicable and is suitable in urban as well as rural areas.
