Health Mix Powder / Multi-Grain Powder / Sattu Maavu, a healthy and nutritious powder which can be given to all age group people. I dont think you can give this to a new born, but yes it can be given to kids aged above 1 year. It was my long time wish to prepare Sattu Maavu at home as it is one of my fav Morning Drink. 
Recently i bought 2-3 tamil cookbooks on Kongu Style cooking from Book Fair, and i was all excited when i saw this recipe in one of those books. I have altered the ingredients used in original recipe and added one or two extra. This Powder can be prepared with any combination of below mentioned ingredients. Until yesterday, i made health mix drink with Store-bought Powder but from now on i'm going to enjoy this aromatic drink with homemade flour. I have also shared Peanut Ladoo recipe made with health mix powder. Lets move on to the recipe,
