I'm 'eating through the cupboard jars' and found a packet of it that I bought during my weaning larder frenzy. Please help.

is it not for budgies?

grin Love you! I was about to say, 'hold on, I'll ask the budgie!'

I had a cod fillet coated in poppyseed and millet the other day (from M&S). T'was lovely. Not sure if I could recreate it at home, though.

yes, this is exactly my problem. perhaps I should just dump it like I did the dried chick peas sad

You could make those millet kebab shaped things and hang them on string throughout the house for the kids to pick peck on.


Sorry. Childish. Sorry.

Don't dump it, what a WASTE. Think of all the starving budgies out there!

Why did you buy it, may I ask?

Do a search and you will get some ideas. Best tip I got was to add it to mince dishes to stretch the meat - not exactly a recipe for millet as such, but it does use it up! (my kids haven't noticed so far).

Good idea Eliiott. I bought it cos I thought it would make a welcome change to rice/quinoa/couscous etc. Needless to say the quinoa and couscous are still sitting right next to the millet. Just thought I'd deal with it first.

I think my hamster ate millet too. Maybe I should take it to the city farm.

grin I've done exactly the same. My kids don't even like couscous though so I haven't dared try it 'neat'.
