Spinach and Meat Porridge

This is a scheduled post.
A good way to add iron to baby’s diet is by feeding her spinach. The iron content in this green leafy vegetable is the richest among the others. From the info I got from a program, a newborn baby is having iron in her body through her mother. The iron will be used up for red blood cell production by the time the baby is 6M. So, it’s necessary to add this element to baby’s diet after you start feeding baby solid food since the source of iron in infant formula is no longer able to fulfill her needs. 

Spinach and Meat Porridge 

1 tbsp of white rice, rinsed
1 tbsp of millet, rinsed
5 pieces of soft lean pork (you can substitute it with another type of red meat or white meat)
spinach, chopped
200ml hot boiling water

1. Put all the ingredients into a small slow cooker, except the spinach and meat.
2. Add the meat when the porridge starts boiling.
3. 15 minutes before the porridge is ready, add spinach. Stir to mix up all the ingredients. Continue the cooking.
4. Off the power and leave it cool for a while.
5. You can either remove the meat from the porridge before feeding, or retain 1 or 2 pieces of the meat and puree the porridge before feeding.

Baby Food - Blueberry Cereal

Blueberry is suitable for baby who is above 7 months. High in antioxidants, vitamins and fiber, it is referred as "super-food". I introduced blueberry to my girl last week, when she was 10M2W. Blueberry cereal suits her taste buds. The color of blueberry cereal looks attractive too.

Tips for new mum: Introducing one new food at one time. You will need to monitor if your baby is allergic to it. My practice is introducing one new food to baby by weekly basis.

Baby Food - Blueberry Cereal

4 tbsp of cereal
2 tbsp of infant formula
2 oz of hot water
12 blueberries, rinsed

1. Mixed up cereal and infant formula with hot water.
2. Pour the cereal in a blender to blend with the blueberries.
3. Serve warm.
