Yes, you can add different veg or fruit into the oats. Afterall variety is the spice of life. Do avoid all forms of seasoning. The first time my daughter tried oats, she had some that I had made for my husb (with sugar). She loved it.
So the next day, I made some for her too but without sugar. She didn't have as much (not sweet mah) but by the third day, she must have forgotten about the sweetened oats that she had had before, and she ate a substantial amount again.
Oats are a wonderful source of fibre and its much better than having sweetened cereals. However if there is a possibility that your baby may be allergic to it, then wait till baby is older (say over 12 months) before introducing it.

Another ques If i wanna cook barley cereal, which type of barley i should purchase as I want to cook homemade barley cereal for my son.
Yap, Treston is eating well but not drinking well...Overall if its under my mum care, he can drink up to 240ml via spoon feeding...If im feeding him, then really gonna control my patience cos he like to make things difficult to me, haha...
For the Happybellies oat & brown rice cereal, i think its very good, contains prebiotic, Dha etc.
Cooking is simple, just add hot water and stir, once done, just mix with pumpkin, avocado etc...Treston can take one bowl of the cereal!!!
what veggie or fruits you added to yr child oatmeal?
Let my son to try for ist time, i mixed it with banana, try it the day after with pumpkin, he ate it but gave me a weird look and did not finish what i cooked for him, dont know issit he not used to the oat's taste.
Should I add more veg or fruits so that to overlap the oat's taste and to get the nutrition by eating the whole bowl.
is it the oats taste or the pumpkin taste? did he finish when he eats the banana oatmeal cereal?
What oats did you buy? Baby oats taste very mild & it very well-received by my boy when he was an infant. Only when he was around 1.8yo then we changed to rolled oats cos the texture is thicker.
Btw, which banana did you buy? You must go market and buy the small tiny ones. Those are sweeter & nicer tasting when cooked with oats.
Yes I bought the butternut pumpkin and he is fine w it, for the banana, i bgt it at the market, small ones as you mentioned.
I bgt the origins organic baby oats that you recommended in the previous post.
Just that he still doesnt like it, i try it every alternate days that hope he wil start to eat it.
For the banana, make sure it's very ripe so that it's sweet. My boy can wolf down 4 bananas on his own without us noticing! We only realised when we saw the peels!
My son has oats almost every morning. Oats with different things everyday, eggs, pumpkin, carrots, tomatoes, cranberries, blueberries, banana, peach, apples, pear, etc etc. Sometimes he is still hungry, my maid will make sandwich for him or give him crackers with salad.
my girl loves oats too. she too has it almost every morning n she always clear her bowl! i only cook with water(not milk) and fruits.. today i tried cooking it with some apple water which is left when i steam the apples n she didnt like it! only took a few mouth.. maybe too sweet.. not sure of she likes it with milk but was thinking since she love it as it is now then maybe i wont add milk into it hehe
never. since day 1 she love it! i can even serve it plain(without fruits and veg)! i love oats myself also! hehe. when i was preggy i drink alot of oats milk also.. bought from supermarket in taiwan. dont know if thats y my girl love oats lol. she sometimes will reject eating porridge but never oats...
