How to Make Oatmeal for Baby

by | Updated: July 29th, 2019 | Read time: 1 minute

As an adult, the prospect of eating a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast may not exactly be an exciting one. But for a baby or toddler, homemade oatmeal can be a tasty morning treat, especially when served airplane-style (“Here comes the oats!”) OR self-fed with a tot-friendly utensil. Bonus for busy moms and dads: it’s quick to make and easy to customize to your little one’s tastes! Plus, baby oatmeal offers a simple way to sneak in a serving of powdered probiotics, which support both digestive and immune health.†


Baby Enjoying Homemade Oatmeal

(makes 1 serving; any leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated later)

2 Tbsp. organic quick oats
3 Tbsp. hot water
1/2 half banana, mashed
1/4 tsp. baby probiotic powder
1/4 tsp. sunflower butter or coconut oil
Dash cinnamon


For younger tots, grind oats in food processor or blender before cooking.

1. Bring water to a boil.

2. Measure oats and add to small bowl. Add hot water then stir in cinnamon and let sit for 5 minutes to soften oats. Add a little more water for thinner oats based on baby’s preference.

3. Stir in mashed banana, sunflower butter and probiotics.

4. Serve to baby with a spoon or let baby self-serve, depending on age.
