Apple-Banana Oatmeal

Mason is dismayed — his oatmeal is all gone!

Best for Babies 6+ months old

Breakfast is so fun.  Unlike lunch and dinner — where the veggies might not be sweet enough (say, mommy tries to coax Mason to eat green beans instead of sweet potatoes) — breakfast is a sure thing. You see, Mason knows he’s going to get oatmeal. And he loves his oatmeal. Loves it. He’ll eat it plain. He’ll eat it warm or cold. He’ll eat it with apples. He’ll eat it with banana. But his fave way to eat it is with a warm mixture of apple and banana. By itself, the organic banana is sweet and delicious. The apple, a Gala variety, is juicy and crisp. Combined the fruit makes a serendipitous match and mixed with the oatmeal it’s pure bliss, at least from Mason’s point of view.
