5 Wonderful Benefits of Oatmeal for Your Baby

When it comes to starting your baby on solid foods, you can’t go wrong with oatmeal. It is a very nutritious food that is gentle on your baby’s digestive system and packed full of nutrients. Here are five wonderful benefits about oatmeal you should consider when you want to start feeding your child solid foods. 

  1. High in Fiber and Nutrients

Oatmeal contains high amounts of fiber, magnesium, iron and zinc. As your baby grows, he or she will need to eat foods that contain more nutrients and vitamins than those that are found in breast milk, formula and cow’s milk alone. Oatmeal is good for you to use as a starter food and for them to eat as they get older because the oats retain their structure and are a good source of nutrition to aid in their growth and development. 

  1. Gentle on Digestion 

It is recommended for babies to start solid foods when they reach six months of age. Oats are single grain foods that are easy on your baby’s digestion system. They help promote fullness and a healthy appetite and prevent gas.

  1. Prevents Constipation

Many babies tend to experience constipation when they start new foods. Oatmeal is a fiber rich food that acts as a natural laxative to help prevent constipation. The fiber in oatmeal adds bulk to their stools to make the bowel movement process easier and gentler.

  1. Blends Well With Other Foods

You are not limited in how you prepare oatmeal for your baby. You can mix fruits, vegetables and other foods to it to make it more flavorful and exciting for your baby to enjoy. You can also use it to help with the introduction of other new solids.

  1. Promotes Health 

Oats contain high amounts of protein and other healthy ingredients that can help boost your child’s immunity and improve the condition and appearance of their hair and skin. It is also a good source of energy.

Make sure your baby is ready to start solid foods before you start feeding them oatmeal. Some babies are picky eaters and tend to resist foods with certain textures, colors and tastes.
