Recipe to Make a Delicious Oatmeal with Formula Milk for Your Baby

As a caring parent providing your baby with healthy and delicious meals is essential for their growth and development. Oatmeal is a fantastic choice due to its nutritional value and ease of preparation. Incorporating formula milk into the recipe can enhance the taste and add extra nutrients to your baby's meal. In this detailed recipe, we will guide you step-by-step on how to make delicious oatmeal using formula milk for your little one.

Combining oatmeal with formula milk can provide additional nutritional benefits for your baby. The oatmeal adds fiber and texture to the meal, while the formula milk contributes important nutrients. However, it's important to introduce each food separately and monitor your baby for any signs of allergies or digestive issues.


Organic rolled oats: 1/4 cup

Water: 1/2 cup

Formula milk: 1/2 cup (prepared as per package instructions)

Fruits (optional): Mashed banana, diced apples, or berries (as per your baby's preference)

Cinnamon (optional): A pinch (avoid using until your baby is at least 6 months old)


Small saucepan

Mixing spoon

Blender or food processor (if using pureed fruits or vegetables)


It's always advisable to consult with your pediatrician before introducing new food to your baby, especially if they have allergies or special dietary requirements.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Preparing the Formula Milk Begin by following the instructions on the formula milk packaging. To prepare the formula milk, measure the formula accurately and mix it with water at the recommended ratio. Prepare half a cup of formula milk for this recipe.

Step 2

Cooking the Oatmeal:

In a small-sized saucepan, mix 1/4 cup organic rolled oats.

Fill the pot halfway with water. 

At medium heat, make sure to bring the water to a boil.

Reduce the heat to low and cook the oats for 5 minutes, stirring regularly. This will soften the oats and make them simpler to digest for your infant!

Turn off the heat and set aside the pot to cool somewhat.

Step 3

Combining the Oatmeal and Formula Milk: 

Pour the prepared formula milk into the cooked oatmeal. 

Stir the mixture thoroughly to combine the oats and formula milk. 

Allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes giving the oats time to absorb the formula milk.

Step 4

Adding Fruits (optional): 

If desired, you can enhance the flavor and nutritional value of the oatmeal by adding mashed fruits.

Choose fruits that are suitable for your baby's age and introduce them one at a time & ensuring there are no allergic reactions.

Mix well with a tablespoon of mashed banana, diced apples, or berries to the oatmeal.

Step 5

Optional Addition of Cinnamon: 

Add a tiny pinch of cinnamon powder to the muesli/oatmeal if your infant is older than 6 months and appreciates the taste of cinnamon. 

To evenly spread the cinnamon, carefully mix the oatmeal!

Step 6

Serving the Oatmeal: 

Once the oatmeal is prepared, and all the ingredients are well combined, it is ready to be served to your baby.

 Ensure that the oatmeal has cooled down to an appropriate temperature to avoid any risk of burning your baby's mouth. 

 Use a baby spoon or your clean finger to feed your little one small spoonfuls of oatmeal.

Observe your baby while they eat to ensure they are comfortable and enjoying the meal. 

Store the leftovers in an airtight jar inside the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Discard any remaining oatmeal after this time.

Flavoring and seasoning oatmeal for babies


1/4 cup rolled oats

1 cup water or breast milk/formula

Pinch of salt (optional)

Flavoring options (choose one):

  • Mashed banana
  • Unsweetened applesauce
  • Pureed berries (strawberries, blueberries, etc.)
  • Mashed avocado

Seasoning options (choose one, optional):

  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla extract



1 - Combine the rolled oats and water or formula milk in a saucepan on medium heat. Add a pinch of salt if desired. Stir well to combine. Bring the complete mixture to a slight boil, then lower to low heat and let it simmer; Stir the oats occasionally to keep them from adhering to the bottom of the pan, then cook for 5 minutes until the oats soften and become creamy.

2 - Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the oatmeal cool slightly. You can transfer it to a bowl if desired.

3 -Once the oatmeal has cooled to a safe temperature for your baby, it's time to add the flavoring. Choose one of the flavoring options mentioned above. Start with a small amount and gradually increase the quantity as your baby gets used to new flavors. For example, add 1-2 tablespoons of mashed banana or unsweetened applesauce to the oatmeal and mix well. If you prefer pureed berries or mashed avocado, start with 1-2 teaspoons and adjust according to your baby's taste.

4 - If you want to add a hint of seasoning to the oatmeal, sprinkle a small amount of cinnamon and add a few drops of vanilla extract. Be cautious with the amount of seasoning you use, as babies have sensitive taste buds.

5 - Stir the oatmeal thoroughly after adding the flavoring and seasoning to ensure even distribution.

6 - Serve the oatmeal to your baby in a suitable bowl or plate. Make sure the temperature is safe for your baby to consume. You can test it by taking a small bite to ensure it's not too hot.

7 - Watch your baby closely during feeding to ensure they are handling the new flavors well and not experiencing any adverse reactions.
