Blue BananaBerry Cereal



If you are feeding your baby any type of baby cereal or oatmeal, you most likely have figured out, it tastes really bland… really, really bland. I know I would not want to eat it by itself, so I KNOW my picky little eaters do not want to eat it alone either. The great part about having such a boring food is that you can very easily and very quickly customize the meal to be both nutritious AND healthy for your baby.

Over the course of this blog, I plan to create different types of baby cereal recipies for baby. My boys are almost two and sometimes I still give them cereal because they like it, and it is very versatile. The first recipe I want to share is great as breakfast, desert, or even just a healthy mid-day snack. I first made this for them at the same time I made my Lactation Smoothie. This recipe is essentially is the same as my smoothie, only without the peanut butter and lactation tea. This recipe is very flexable, so feel free to play around with how much you use of each ingredient. It really is dependent on how many babies you are making this for (I made it for twins) and your babies tastes and preferences.

 Ingredients:


  • 6 Whole Strawberries - sliced
  • 1 whole banana, sliced
  • ¼ Cup Blueberries
  • 1/4 C Whole Milk
  • 1-2 Cups of Baby Cereal or Oatmeal


Directions:

  • Add all ingredients to the blender and mix until smooth.
  • Run a spoon through the mixture to make sure there are no big chunks or choking hazards.
  • Add to bowl of cereal and stir until fully mixed.
  • Optional: top with cinnamon
  • Serve to your happy, hungry little munchkin(s)! 

Tip: If your baby is underweight, add butter or olive oil to boost calories!

    1. Do you get strawberries or raspberries? I think either would make an awesome substitute. I have not made this in a while and Oliver is getting VERY picky about his food. I think I know what he is having tomorrow!! ♥ Thanks so much for your comment!
