    As a nurse practitioner, I’m concerned that you are telling people to give babies “low fat” dairy. Children under age 2 should ALWAYS be fed full fat dairy products. Fats are crucial for brain and nervous system development at this age, as well as provide needed calories for rapid growth. Human breastmilk is about 50% calories from fat, mostly saturated, proving how essential fats are to babies. I hope you change your recipes to use whole milk products, then I will recommend your site to patients. Until then it goes against what is recommended by nutritionists to use “full fat” dairy until age 2.

    This is something I just came up with, so measurements are ~ if you want to use it, you might want to make it and nail down measurements

    Barley with Mushrooms

    1 cup uncooked Pear Barley (boil it with 3.5 cups water, until all water is absorbed, make sure it is nice and soft for baby, if not add more water)
    a little onion (a thin slice, chopped very fine)
    .5 – 1 tsp minced garlic (adjust to personal taste, my baby loves garlic)
    10 mushrooms, chopped fine
    a handful of spinach or field greens, chopped
    a sprinkle of cheese of your choice (more if you are trying to add calories in diet)
    a splash of olive oil

    Method:
    Prepare barley, set aside
    add a bit of olive oil to a pan and heat on low
    add onion, when it starts to turn clear add garlic and mushrooms, cook until mushroom release their liquid and go soft
    add in barley and cook until heated through (add a dash more oil only if anything is sticking to the bottom of the pan)
    add cheese and spinach and stir until spinach wilts
