Baby Porridge

You can use traditional whole oats or the more refined quick oats. 

You can use any milk of your choice. Babies benefit from whole cows milk, breast or formula until age 2 then if they are eating well you can switch to semi-skimmed milk. Plant milks are quite low in nutrition but a small amount in food can be used from 6 months and often provides a lovely flavour.
