Baby food in Germany

Baby food in Germany – Third baby meal

It is recommended to start with the third baby meal one month after the second meal introduction. The third baby meal is a cereal fruit porridge in the afternoon, between lunch and dinner.

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 fruit and a whole grain cereal.

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

  1. Cooked 10 g of cereals in water
  2. When it reached the desired consistency, I added it to a bowl
  3. I added 100 g of blended fruit to it
  4. Waited until it reached a baby friendly temperature
  5. Added 1 tea spoon of olive oil/rapeseed oil

The baby’s third 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

Well tolerated fruits are

  • Apple
  • Banana
  • Peach
  • Pear
  • Nectarine
  • Apricot
