Yummy For Babies

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

Swap this for that

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+.

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!
