Free Healthy Recipe - Toddlers Creamy Pear and Sultana Porridge

Low fat, Low GI, Low sugar, Wheat Free

Oats are a nutritious complex carbohydrate, that are high in B vitamins, low GI, easy to digest and easy to cook with. Cooked oats make the perfect toddlers breakfast, especially compared to most commercial kids cereals that are packed with sugar and salt. The addition of fruit adds fibre, and together with milk, adds a natural sweetness without the need for sugar. Perfect for hungry little tummies!

Ingredients
¼ cup milk
2 tablespoon filtered water
¼ cup ripe pear, peeled and grated
1 teaspoon sultanas
cold milk to serve
Method

Place all the ingredients into a small pot. Cook on low-medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to a simmer and continue to cook for a few minutes, still stirring. When the oats look cooked, but still a thick consistency, take of heat and serve with a little cold milk. The cold milk will quickly cool the porridge, and when stirred through, will also thin the thick porridge, without making it too runny for a self-feeding toddler. Best eaten immediately.
