The Outstanding Oatmeal/Havregryn/麦片粥[mài piàn zhōu]

For babies from 6 months to avoid allergy to gluten.

If there is only one single grain I would choose to introduce to J, it would be the outstanding oatmeal as it is inexpensive in Denmark (even the organic ones), readily available, fast and convenience and highly nutritious.

1. Cook 75ml of oatmeal with 200 ml of formula milk under weak heat (no. 4 on our electric stove) and stir until it is soft and tender.

2. Stir in 1 teaspoon olive oil

This makes an excellent wholesome breakfast for adults too. You can cook it with low-fat fresh milk under low fire (no. 4 on my stove). Heat 250 ml of milk under low fire, and then add 4 TBS of oatmeal. Cover and let it simmer for 5 minutes.

1. Cool down, pour into ice cube tray and freeze.

2. Once frozen, knock the cubes out and store them in freezer bags (makes 2-3 ice cube trays, can store up to 8 weeks)

Nutritional Value:
Oats are an excellent source of soluble fibre, protein and the B vitamins thiamin, riboflavin, B6 and vitamin E. They also provide iron, calcium, magnesium, selenium, phosphorus and zinc.
