  • 25 g/1 oz porridge oats
  • 200 ml/7 fl oz baby’s usual milk, plus extra if needed
  • A large pinch of ground mixed spice
  • 1 small ripe banana, sliced



  1. Place the oats, milk + spice in a small saucepan + bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for 8–10 minutes, stirring frequently, until the oats are soft.
  2. Purée with the banana in a food processor, or using a h+ blender, until smooth, adding extra milk if necessary.

Swap This For That

Try adding grated carrot instead of banana. Heat it through with the oats, spices + milk + add a dollop of peanut butter for a carrot cake porridge for older babies. No need to puree from 7m+.

Yummy For Babies

A scrummy brekkie for the whole family - just don't blend down for older little ones.

Handy Tips

Keep smiling! Smiley mealtimes keep babies happy about food. If your baby doesn’t feel like eating, even if it’s something deeelicious, that’s okay. Don’t look sad. Babies have hungry days + less hungry days – just like we do!
