Apple oats porridge is a highly nutritious and fiber-rich meal for your baby. Rather than giving plain apple porridge or oats porridge for babies, the combination of apple oats porridge works out great.
If your child is not very fruit savvy, trying out this apple oats combination can be a wonderful solution. My son personally loves it and calls it “White Liquid Kheer” without knowing what goes into it!
Before introducing any new food, remember to follow the 3 Day Rule. It’s also important to sterilize the utensils and equipment needed for cooking baby food.
