Home FEEDING First Food Simple Recipes For Kids | Healthy Breakfast With Avocado

Hunger for more simple recipes for kids? Look here for an easy home recipe, combining oatmeal, avocado, banana and cornflakes. Adding milk, yogurts, raisins, banana, prunes, dried fruits and nuts are my old fashioned way of preparing oatmeal. However, Austin's momma is always keen to experiment despite a lot of uncertainties as if her kitchen is her laboratory. Can't put her on the blame since she is a chemist by training! 
Avocado is relatively an expensive fruit in Malaysia but it is one of Austin's favorite fruits since his baby days when we had just started him on solid. He was once upon a time very fond of bananacado (made from banana + avocado) mush, alas we didn't initiate much after he turned one though it is a superb quick fix breakfast for babies. If you're figuring out how to prepare bananacado, all you need is 1 ripe banana and 1 ripe avocado. Peel off their skin and mash. Serve immediately otherwise the mush will oxidize and turn black quickly. No harm to consume though. Only takes less than 5 minutes and certainly one of the simplest recipes for a baby.

Since avocado offers a diversified fats at which most is mono-unsaturated fat, high fiber, it is also a higher potassium content than banana. In addition, it is rich in B vitamins, vitamin E as well as vitamin K, despite unpopular and costly we are glad to serve as long as he wants it. This round, momma planned to surprise Austin with a new recipe for his breakfast that perhaps nobody would ever make it this way. Ta-da!

Ingredients: (makes ~ 1/2 cup) 
1/4 cup cornflakes
1/4 instant oatmeal
1/2 piece Hass avocado
1/4 cup boiling hot water
1 piece ripe banana (optional)
Some raisins (optional)


1. Combine cornflakes and instant oatmeal in a bowl. Pour the hot water, cover the bowl and set aside for 3-5 minutes.

2. Scrap out the avocado, mashed and add into the former bowl that contains cornflakes and instant oatmeal.

3. To add variation and taste sweeter, you may slice a banana or sprinkle some raisins/dried fruits. 

4. Serve immediately.

For Austin, he finished up every single feeding that I offered to him :)
