OK, by mid-fall my kids are admittedly sick of anything pumpkin-related. See Claire’s face above. But that’s because I put it in anything. And everything.
You can add almost anything to oatmeal but pumpkin oatmeal is one of my favorites for baby-led weaning. You can substitute between 1/4-1/2 of the liquid in your typical oatmeal recipe for canned pumpkin.
Be sure to use canned pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie mix (that has added sugars that babies can’t have). This also works with steel cut or overnight oats but may need to add more liquid.
