For a nutritious meal for a when babies are getting off the bottle such as a 5 month old, one idea is to mix in a bowl 3 ounces of baby water, 1 1/2 scoops of a baby formula such as Similac, then add an oatmeal cereal mix such as Gerbers until it starts to thicken a bit, but still has a bit of liquid consistancy. Next mix in a 2.5 ounce vegetable or fruit packet. An example one might use those little rectangle packages from Gerbers. Babies seem to love this healthy nutritional meal. Please take care to check with your doctor to ensure that your baby is ready for this kind of a meal.
