Nutritional values

The porridge provides babies with a lot of useful things: the iron from the oat flakes in combination with the vitamin C from the juice can be particularly well utilised. Additional B vitamins are provided by the flakes, beta-carotene by the sweet potato and lecithin by the peas.

Instead of orange juice, you can use apple or pear juice; instead of sweet potatoes, pumpkin or carrots are also suitable.
