My kids love to assist me when I am in kitchen during holidays. Today is their holiday for 15th August (Indian Independent day) and they were interested to make this juice. They loved it very much and were so proud that they had made it all by themselves and have  saved  one glass in refrigerator for their father. I have just guided them.

Pomegranate and sweet limes are low in carbohydrate.

  1. I love pomegranate. Great job 🙂

  2. Hi Tanusree,

    I had been giving my 14 month old sweet lime and pomegrante juice mixed from last 3-4 days. I wanted to know if mixing them together reduces the benefits pomegranate will otherwise offer. My kid is low on Haemoglobin and I want to increase that using natural things and not medicines.

  3. Make sure that the juice is unsweetened as sugar being inflammatory can reduce some of the health benefits of this fruit.Otherwise mixing the pomegranate juice with sweet lime juice will not reduce the benefit.

    For increasing the hemoglobin You can also give your baby Spinach soup,Boiled apple paste twice in a week.If you are non vegetarian ,you can try boiled flesh of fish with some boiled musurdal(red lentils) and boiled rice(If possible pressure cook the three ingredients together with some salt and buter) .if you are a vegetarian you can use carrot or other vegetable in the place of fish.Give this in alternate day.

    • Thanks Tanusree…. That helps a lot. I use just 1/4th teaspoon of grinded mishri and little bit of rock salt to add flavour to it

  4. my b12 level is 104 which is very low how can i recover the normal level. i am a vegetarian will you prescribe .how the level should i increase.

  5. my b12 level is 104 wcich is low .
