Making your own baby porridge or baby oatmeal is super easy and a much cheaper way to feed a weaning baby than the packaged variety.
- Rolled Oats
- Milk – breast milk, formula or cows milk
- Place the oats in a food processor and blitz until they become fine, almost a flour consistency. Store in an airtight glass jar or plastic container.
- To make the porridge or oatmeal use 1 part oats to 2 parts milk and heat gently in a saucepan for 3-4 minutes, stirring regularly.
- To make flavoured porridge add grated apple, mashed banana, desiccated coconut, etc to the oats while cooking.
