I am starting to do some recipes from the Super Baby Food book, namely the Super Porridge. I eat porridge everyday and wanted to start giving my babe some too. I'm starting with oats, since that's what I eat and I already have them. Is there any nutritional difference in buying rolled oats vs. whole oats? The ingrediants listed on both bags are identical, and the rolled was once whole. Do you loose any value if you buy the oats pre-rolled? Before I cook them I have to grind them to a powder in my food processor anyway. Hmmm......any thoughts out there? Thanks in advance,
I think you should buy the purest form possible. My kids loved that porridge, BTW.I didn't end up doing it as much as I origionally planned though. I find a coffee grinder works great. I wpould also try blending it with other grains.
