Basic Baby Porridge

June 7, 2022

Baby porridge is one of the most nutritious foods you can feed your child.

Since he was approximately five months old, I’ve been giving Baby G porridge. He likes porridge and eats it every day, twice a day. He eats up to 1.5 bowls of porridge every day! ‘

After introducing sweet potato puree to him for a few weeks, I began feeding him porridge. Because I know how much he enjoys sweet potatoes, I make my baby’s porridge with rice, sweet potatoes, and water.

Baby porridge can be used in a variety of ways. To be creative, you may swap out the sweet potato for various other root vegetables such as ordinary potato, carrot, pumpkin, butternut squash, or kabocha (also known as a Japanese pumpkin).

As a new parent, you need to be cautious about introducing your kid to fresh foods to not develop a food allergy. Try one ingredient at a time before moving on to the next.

My pediatrician advised me to add an egg yolk to Baby G’s diet once he was six months old because he doesn’t like formula. Consult your doctor before introducing your baby to egg whites because some babies are allergic to the whites.

I will provide the recipe for my premium baby porridge soon; it’s so excellent that I don’t even mind eating it myself.
