Blueberry Banana Oatmeal Porridge

For the above, I used 2 small bananas

Wow! So quickly and the 1st month of the year has gone past in a whiz. We are into February now! It's so scary how everyday just flies past!!

So here's a quick, easy, yummy and nutritious breakfast recipe to start the month rolling! You can make this for your tot or for yourself! Cat, here's the oatmeal I was talking about.... especially for your eyes :) .... keke!

Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp of Nestum
  • 2 tbsp of Instant Quaker Oats
  • 1-2 small ripe banana
  • Handful of blueberries
  • 1 scoop of formula milk OR some fresh milk **
Method
  1. Mix nestum, oats and formula milk together and add 1/2 - 1 cup of hot water

  2. Stir till all combined. Adjust consistency of porridge by adding a little more hot water to make it more diluted.

  3. Mash half of the banana and stir into porridge

  4. Slice the balance and add to it together with the blueberries

  5. Serve and ENJOY!
** If using fresh milk, boil milk and add to the dry ingredients. You can use all fresh milk or 50 milk, 50 water. It all depends on your tastes and needs.

Notes
  • Be careful not to add too much or the whole cup of water all at once as oats do absorb water and after about 3 mins res, it will expand and thicken up. Do it bit by bit or it may be over watery. Adjust to your child's prefernce or your preference. I like mine slightly thick. :) But should you add too much water/liquid, you can just stir in another scoop of nestum or oats to thicken up. No hard and fast rules, just play with the texture!

  • I like adding more nestum as it is more fragrant so kids are more encouraged to eat this.

  • If you like, you can use ALL nestum too! This was my favourite breakfast when I was growing up! A bowl of nestum, hot water & condensed milk or hot milk and sugar! I could eat this everyday and I made it myself when I was in Pri 1.

  • Banana is naturally sweet so there is no need to add any sugar.

  • Experiment with different fruits or use the fruits of your choice.
