Banana Apple Porridge

I like to consider this recipe as Luca’s “comfort food”. He loves bananas. In addition to that, rice makes the final result more creamy.

It’s a super easy recipe, trust me!

I have to admit that sometimes I add a spoon of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon and I join Luca in tasting this yummy dessert.

    first of all i want to say thank you for posting all those wonderful recipes.

    my son is 6 months old and i start to give him solids. But i think I am giving him too much.
    the pediatric told me that there is no such amount to follow .
    But then i see your site and you only put 3 to 4 ingredients in a meal. I kinda give him the (italian mix) ( carrot, swt potato, courgette, onion, caulliflour, broccoli, chicken/turkey/beef) and sometimes I replace 2 ingredients with pumpkin and peas to make a different taste.

    I would like to know your opinion.
    thank you

      Hi Louise!
      sorry I replied from my cell and I didn’t see your question 🙂
      I think you’re doing great.
      Every main meal (lunch, dinner) that I prepare for my little Alex (he’s 7 months now) has the same food categories:
      vegetables + proteins (either meat, fish or eggs) + carbohydrates (baby cereals) + good fat (extra virgin oil of olives) + extra touch of taste ( 1 tsp grated parmesan cheese). That’s what I call “the Italian mix”
      Basically I’m trying to reproduce all the ingredients contained in breast milk 🙂
      The vegetable mix can contain as many vegetables as you like (you might just decide which vegetable considering your baby’s age).
      I usually mix 3/4 veggies at a time and I double the quantity of 1 veggie because I want a flavor to pop up. One day it will be zucchini, the following carrots..if you mix a lot of veggies you will have a more blended flavor. so, as you can see, it’s just a matter of flavors, not nutritional factors.
      I hope I was helpful, let me know if you have any more questions!!
      ciao ciao
