It’s a fact. I love weaning, especially baby led weaning. It’s such a delight to watch a baby learn how to handle food and watch them try new tastes and textures. However it is one messy process! I tend to take the attitude that it is all one big learning process and a little mess is a small price to pay. There are some mornings when I need a quick breakfast that has less chance of being thrown a fair distance 😉 this is my go to breakfast on those days. One thing I particularly like is that I can prepare it the night before, saving me even more time in the mornings. I take them out of the fridge and take the chill off in the microwave.
These porridge fingers are soft and squidgy, so lovely for little fingers to pick up. I either put berries in them or serve fruit on the side. They have gone down so well in our house that I now have to make up a large tray as Miss K (who is almost 4 years) eats them too.
Use your usual milk (breast milk works well as does cows milk) and experiment with the fruit. These were made with redcurrants.
No salt, No sugar, just wholegrain goodness, milk and fruit.
Here is my “after” picture, this is a less messy breakfast for us 😉
- 3 tbsp oats
- 2-3 tbsp milk
- 1 tbsp berries
- Mix the oats, berries and milk in a bowl.
- Press the oats down and the drain off an excess milk.
- Microwave on high for 1min 45 - 2 minutes.
- If the porridge is not thick then cook for another 30 seconds.
- Leave to cool and serve or put in the fridge for the next day.
