So this week I finally introduced grains into my little one's diet. Well actually a seeds, but some still put it in the grain category. I made a cereal from Quiona flakes, and it was pretty easy to make. Just boil water, then add flakes and boom, in about a minute it was done. I fed it to her plain and she ate it but made a face like, um mommy what is this ish? So then I mixed it with mashed bananas and it was all good.
I like Quiona because it is naturally high in iron, no fortification necessary, plus it's got protein and a lot of other naturally occurring vitamins and minerals. I tried some with butter and sugar added for my own taste and it's not that bad. I think I may be able to get used to it. I have used regular Quinoa in beef soup and I loved it! But for now it's a great food for baby.
