Fatten Up The Baby HEALTHFULLY Oatmeal Breakfast

Submitted by: AUBREYJO

Introduction

My little one started dropping off the growth charts once we started solids, so here's what I'm feeding her in the morning (after 12 months) to get more calories in. :) My doctor told me to give her "cookies, ice cream and cake!" As someone who has lost 100 pounds, no way am I going to program my baby to prefer junk food!

Ingredients

    1/2 cup old fashioned oats
    2/3 cup whole milk
    1 TBS Sunflower seed butter (or peanut/any other nut butter, if your toddler isn't allergic)
    2 TBS flax seed (ground)

Tips

I make my own baby food, so I had some "high calorie" fruits in the freezer/fridge. The purees I have added to this are: pureed buttered apples and raisins, or chunky peaches with cinnamon & butter, or bananas, or avocado. She readily accepted them. If you mix 4 ounces of fruit with this, then it'll fit in a 6 ounce jar. If no fruit is added, it should fit in two 4 ounce jars. This is for babies who are used to a chunkier texture. If your baby is a newer eater, you can always blend it with more milk/formula and make it very smooth for them.


Directions

Soak oats in the fridge overnight in milk, add a dollop of yogurt [calorie amount not included in the calories). (Helps make the grains more digestible.) In the morning, add the oatmeal to a pan. Add flax seed, and use the Tablespoon you got the sunflower seed/peanut butter on to mix it with. Continue to mix until the "butter" is well integrated. It doesn't need to boil, or get too hot. Make sure to check the temperature before serving to the baby.


Serving Size: makes 2 servings that should fit in 4-6 ounce baby jars.**

Number of Servings: 2
