Serving Suggestions


  • This will thicken a little on cooling.
  • If you are making this for a toddler you can skip mashing the pears.
  • You can use drained tinned pears for this recipe. There is no need to cook the pears but heating them and using a little of the natural juice is required before you add the cereal.
  • You can adjust the amount of cereal to make the consistency that suits your baby.
