Abstract:

Promotion of optimal growth in infants calls for introduction of adequate food supplements in the form of complementary foods in addition to continued breast feeding from the age of 6 months onwards as complementary feeding plays critical role in children. Study was carried out to develop complementary food formulation, sensory evaluation, nutrient and antinutrients analysis. Finger millet, oilseeds, milk solids, jaggery, processed chia seeds and basella alba leaves were used in different proportion. Quality parameters were analyzed using AOAC and other protocols. Results revealed that complimentary food formulation I (soaked and dried chia seeds incorporation) received best acceptance than complimentary food formulation II and differed significantly. Best accepted formulation I had moisture 14.35, protein 28.3, fat 18.8,ash 3.4, crude fiber 3.64, carbohydrate 31.56per cent respectively and energy 407 Kcal per 100gm. The calcium content -302, zinc 5.92 and iron 2.7mg/100g respectively. Polyphenol, tannin and phytic acid content were 0.84(mg/100gm), 1.6(µg/1g) and 0.69(mg/100gm) respectively. Hence concluded that complimentary food formulation with soaked and dried chia, basella leaves and other ingredients had very good nutritional profile and acceptability which can be introduced to children after 6 months age to meet the nutritional requirements.
