Annaprasana means feeding food. This function is done in 5th month for baby girls and 6th month for baby boys. Annam prabrahma swarupam – food is face of God. This ritual is to first clean up the effects of what babies eat when inside mother’s garbham including their own excreta so that the food which is face of God can be given inside. The vedic chants invoke bhoomi, sun, dikpalakas etc to help get insect free and nutritious food which the baby can eat and also that baby when grown up can give everyone such food. The baby is then fed with paste of rice cooked with cow milk and jaggery after offering the food to God with a golden item by father.
