Use pears or apples for this fruit-packed breakfast, suitable from 7 months

  • Preparation and cooking time
    • Prep:
  • Easy
  • Serves 1


  • 100g Porridge oats
  • 150ml Baby's usual milk
  • 100ml Water
  • 1 Pear or apple, peeled, cored and grated
  • A pinch of cinnamon


  • STEP 1

    Put the oats, water and milk in a small saucepan over a low heat. Simmer gently for about 5 minutes, then stir and simmer for another couple of minutes.

  • STEP 2

    Take the pan off the heat and stir in the fruit and the cinnamon.

  • STEP 3

    Make sure it’s cooled down all through before serving to your baby.

  • STEP 4
    • Grating the fruit makes it mix into the porridge really well.
    • For older babies, you could add sultanas as well.
    • You don’t need to include sugar as the fruit will sweeten it enough.
