Babies will love this deliciously sweet combination of strawberries, watermelon and oats. This Strawberry & Watermelon Baby Porridge is perfect summer meal for a weaning baby or toddler!
Weaning babies can be a very stressful time.
We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to introduce so many different foods to our little ones in such a short space of time, not to mention prepping and cooking a zillion different types of purees in one day!
When it came to weaning my son I found that by using simple ingredients that I already had in the house, I could make delicious and nutritious meals for him that didn’t require a lot of time or effort.
We have an abundance of summery fruits around at the moment making it the perfect time to try this combination of strawberries and watermelon. So sweet and so delicious!

What a great idea! My baby and my 4 year old both munched it down! Such a great way to get a healthy dose of Vit C into little tums 🙂
