Cooking for babies can be a bit intimidating. Their preferences on what they like, keep changing. One day, they would finish off the bowl of delicious avocado without any fuss. Next time when it’s served again, the majority ends up on the floor or clothes or throughout the baby’s face. This is the time when they are experimenting with texture, smell, taste and the sight of the food. So we as moms are destined to just keep trying. If that day was not a good day for ‘avocados’, try giving it after few days. Through such trial and errors, I found my daughter’s preferences. I have served her bananas, so many times with different combinations. But the very smell of bananas makes her shut her mouth really tight. So I don’t give her bananas anymore. In this post, I am sharing a recipe, which doesn’t include bananas, of course, but it’s made of ‘Cracked Wheat’ and blueberries.

Cracked Wheat is made from crushing wheat berries into small pieces. It is a good source of iron, protein, carbohydrates and fiber. A porridge made of cracked wheat is a wonderful meal for a baby. In India, cracked wheat is a staple in baby’s diet. It is served in sweet as well as savory form. I introduced my daughter to this wholesome grain around the end of 9 months and she liked it. Cracked wheat is usually available in pre-packed packages at whole food stores, organic stores and Asian grocery stores in the Indian food aisle. Store these little grains in an air-tight container after opening the packet.
