Adding cinnamon with apple is new to me and the best combination ever for digestion.I heard about this combination in baking area.Right now i add a tiny piece of cinnamon with this,you can also add a pinch of cinnamon powder.You can also skip this as we already add jeera or asafoetida/hing to our cereals.
Sometimes i used to cook apple cubes with this cereal powders in pot with more water then strain it.Then i pureed the mixture and feed him the strained water seperately instead of water.
