Baby Porridge – Healthy Breakfast

Baby Porridge – Healthy Breakfast

Why not try organic porridge with fruit for baby’s breakfast.

It is much healthier version than pre-powdered baby breakfast options that are on the market. Some of these contain sugar, tapioca starch, semolina, fillers etc!

 

Oats are gluten free, containing a protein called avenin which is similar to gluten.

So you can grind them up for baby for stage 1 weaning if you think they are ready. Otherwise stick to baby rice which might be lighter on the stomach.

 

Oats are a fabulous source of protein, and contain Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, Manganese and B Vitamins.

 

Stage 1 Weaning Recipe

25g/ 1 Oz Organic Porridge Oats

50g/ 2 Oz Fruit your baby likes (Small chunks mango, peach or blueberries work well)

250ml/ 9 Oz of Baby Milk

 

Method

Cook on low heat until it comes together. Let it cool. Blend with hand blender or free standing blender. Blend to your baby’s level of weaning. Add more milk to lessen thickness. Poor into trays for freezing.

 

Stage 2 Weaning Recipe

25g/ 1 Oz Organic Porridge Oats

50g/ 2 Oz Fruit your baby likes (Small chunks mango, peach or blueberries work well)

350ml/ 12 Oz of Full Fat Organic Milk

Pinch of Cinnamon

1 Tablespoon of grated Carrot

 

Method

Same as above, but you can use a fork to mash as you wish, instead of the blender.

 

A warm start to the day for your little one!
