Hence, regular consumption of these seeds provides iron to the body. It also improves our digestive system.

Adding jeera water to our little one’s diet chart is also beneficial. And I started to give jeera water to my little one when she was 7 months old. In the beginning it was only a few spoons of water as I did not want to fill her stomach with water which can disturb her digestive system. Slowly I increased the quantity and nowadays she starts her day with warm jeera water.
Regular consumption of jeera water helped her to:
Improves digestive system
