Adventures in Baby Food Making: Apple Pie Oatmeal for Baby

FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

Baby food is normally BORING. Sweet potato. Carrots. Peas. Rice Cereal. Sure they make some combos like summer vegetables or apples with blueberries but there’s no pizzazz to them.

I say add a little spice! Little Bean has already had cumin dusted pork chops, greek spiced salmon and mexican chicken. I also add a bit of spice to his morning bowl of oatmeal. Here’s how I make Apple Pie Oatmeal for Baby….

    Since I put the formula IN breakfast I let him sip on water. It's gives him practice and a taste for it. I run a juice free house so this is his only option as he gets bigger.

    They won't last longer then 24 hours because of the formula. I simply saved them for lunch. It was his dessert.

    He's getting the hang of the cup.
    He played with it while I cleaned up! He's not quite drinking by himself but he's getting close!
