Porridge for babies/toddlers

Postby shinri » Tue Nov 29, 2011 4:25 pm

Hi, I like to cook for my DD, who's 1 yr old now.
I tried porridge with minced pork, pig's liver, broccoli, radish, carrot, minced beef & ikan bilis.
Would like to include a wider range of foods so that DD can get better nutrition and be exposed to wider variety.

Any suggestions?
Mainly to cook with porridge.

Wow... thanks for the suggestions!
Will try ;)
Hmmm... about egg, I thought it's not so good to introduce early?
Heard due to some allergy or something.

Aiyoh.. my DD slow in everything, totally no teeth yet.
So can't give food that needs to be chewed..

Ya, don't intro eggs yet, best to wait till they are about 3-4 yrs old.

Until 3/4yrs old? So cannot eat their own birthday cakes. :sad:

:lol:

Actually, offals are not recommended for young children too. With anything new, always give only like a small teaspoon and observe to see if there are any allergic reactions. And only intro 1 type of new food each time over a period of like 3-5days.

My mum used to double boil frog leg porridge with pao shen for my kids. Fish is always a good choice for kids. With or without teeth also no problems. :wink:

Oh, I only boil with the porridge to get the taste. The actual pork liver will throw away after boil in the porridge already.
Nanny told me DD doesn't like fish in porridge.. unless it's steamed and served separately.

Haiz... so young already can choose the food :shrug:

Only egg yolk, not egg white. I mixed egg yolk (boiled) into brown rice cereal. I introduced this to my dd when she was 9 mo. She is going to turn one next mth.
