Baby food in Germany

Baby food in Germany – Second baby meal

In the beginning of the 6th month and not later than the beginning of the 8th month you should introduce your baby the second baby meal: Milk cereal porridge.

There are many instant flakes options in supermarkets with baby food in Germany. Some of them are even made with biological products. Just be sure that those have as main ingredients milk (formula) and a whole grain cereal.

If you are preparing it yourself, here you can check how I did it for our baby:

  1. Cooked 20 g of cereals in 200 ml of milk
  2. When it reached the desired consistency, I added it to a bowl
  3. I added 2 Table spoons of blended fruit to it
  4. Waited until it reached a baby friendly temperature

Your baby’s second baby meal is done!

You can use different cereals, but for the beginning one type of cereal per meal is enough. 20 g of whole grain cereal corresponds to:

  • 2 Tbsp. of oats
  • 3 Tbsp. of spelt
  • 4 tbsp. instant flakes

These recommendations are based on the guidelines for introducing solids to babies of the In Form (Deutschlands Initiative für gesunde Ernährung und mehr Bewegung / German initiative for healthy nutrition and more exercise).
