      Hi Rekha,
      Yes, you can eat millets as part of the balanced diet. Millets have many health benefits and add to the diversity of the meals. Make sure to eat enough iodine rich foods and use iodized salt while cooking. Anti-nutrients present in millets are deactivated when cooked or processed. Have them in moderation as part of your balanced meals.
