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.
- 30 g Oats
- 150 ml Milk
- Place oats and milk in a pan and stir over a high heat until the porridge thickens. The length of time this takes will depend on the type of oats you have chosen.
- You can also make porridge in the microwave. Stir the oats and milk together and microwave for approx 60 seconds.
- Add your porridge topper from my suggestions and stir through. Allow to cool before serving.
