Homemade Dates Syrup | Natural Sweetener

dates syrup

Dates in one with more iron content. Anemic people and pregnant women must eat this daily. But it is very difficult to make my toddler son eat it. I decided to search for any method of making him have this fruit and landed in swathi 's place where she had a method of making syrup using it. I made it, added to my son's milk and he just loved it.
