!!As always, ask your pediatrician before introducing new foods to your child!! I've been making these for my daughter, P2, since she started on pureed fruits and veggies. When your child reaches the recommended age for yogurt, try adding a couple tbsp to give a creamy consistency. These are great for when your on the go as well! FUN FACTS: Flax is a good source of Omega-3 oils, antioxidants, fiber and other essential nutrients for babies (and adults) which makes it the powerhouse of beneficial nutrition for the whole family.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 fluid ounces water (add until you reach your desired smoothness) or 4 fluid ounces infant formula (add until you reach your desired smoothness)
  • 3 12 ounces pureed fruit (or mixed blend, e.g. blueberries and spinach) or 3 12 ounces vegetables (or mixed blend, e.g. blueberries and spinach)
  • 2 tablespoons oatmeal (or pulse some dry oats in your blender until they become powder fine) or 2 tablespoons baby cereal (or pulse some dry oats in your blender until they become powder fine) or 2 tablespoons mixed grains (or pulse some dry oats in your blender until they become powder fine)
  • 1 teaspoon flax seed meal (finely ground flax seed)

Directions

  1. Start out by pouring 3 ounces of liquid into feeding container (e.g. sippy cup. This method is ideal because you don't have to worry about breaking out the blender). Add pureed fruit/veggies, oatmeal cereal and the flax seed meal. Add lid and shake well. Add more liquid if need be.
