Porridge with fruit compote

Annabel Says: Berry fruits such as blueberries and raspberries are bursting with nutrients to give your baby’s immune system a boost. Frozen fruit is a convenient alternative to fresh and is just as healthy too. 


150g (5oz) blueberries

250g (9oz) raspberries

1 ½ -2 tbsp caster sugar

35g (1 ½) porridge oats

250ml (9fl oz) milk


Put 100g (4oz) of the blueberries and 150g (5oz) of the raspberries into a saucepan with the sugar. Stir until dissolved then simmer for 3-4 minutes until the fruits have softened.

Push the fruits through a sieve into a bowl to remove the seeds and skin. Add the remaining whole fruits to the purée.

Measure the porridge oats and milk into a saucepan. Bring up to the boil and simmer for 3-4 minutes until the oats are cooked. Serve with the fruit compote.

Makes 2-3 portions
