OATS

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Fullplate -

Tod­dlers are not renowned for their steady moods, and feed­ing them high-GI foods, such as sug­ary ce­re­als, which cause a steep rise and fall in en­ergy lev­els, isn’t go­ing to help. En­ter oats – these grains have a low gly­caemic in­dex, which means they pro­vide a slow-re­lease en­ergy sup­ply, and they take a long time to di­gest. Try por­ridge for breakfast (whole oats are bet­ter than in­stant), topped with fresh blue­ber­ries or sliced straw­ber­ries, or spread an oat­cake with cream cheese or peanut but­ter to cre­ate a sat­is­fy­ing snack.
