Add 1 teaspoon of edible oil (such as canola, sunflower, hemp, or olive oil)

Dairy-Free Porridge with Fruit or Vegetable Purée
Mix 20 g of cereal (4 tablespoons) with 100 g of fruit purée from a jar (or from one of our Holle purée squeeze pouches) or 100 g of freshly prepared fruit purée.
Add 1 teaspoon of edible oil (such as canola, sunflower, hemp, or olive oil).
