If you have started giving your baby semi solid and solid foods, it’s time to introduce them to healthy grains like oats. Oatmeal contains a lot of vitamins and minerals like calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium along with a lot of gut-friendly fibre. While there are very few oats brands in India specifically catering to babies, we do have a lot of other premium quality brands that you can use. I have done plenty of research to bring you this list of the best oats brands for babies in India:
Best Oats Brands For Babies in 2021
- Best Oats Brands For Babies in 2021
Happa Organic Baby Food
A great way to introduce different types of grains to babies is by blending them with fruit. Happa makes this so much easier especially if you’re balancing work as well as home with the ready to serve baby food.
The packaging is also in single serve quantities, ideal when you’re traveling.
The blend of oats powder with 100% pure apple puree is naturally sweet, rich and thick, keeping your baby full for a long time but easy to digest as well.
You can serve this directly from the packaging as a cold meal or put the pack in hot water for a few minutes, pour it into a bowl, and then feed your baby some warm porridge.
The oats and the apple used in making this puree are completely organic, contain no added sugars, flavours, colours and are safe.
Slurrp Farm Natural Oats Powder
The brand “Slurrp Farm” was created by two mothers to find ways to make feeding their babies and children safe and healthy food.
The Natural Oats Powder sold by Slurrp Farm is processed from 100% pure and USDA certified organic oats grains with no additives, artificial flavours, preservatives or colours. The powder is very fine and reduces the time you need to cook regular unpowdered rolled oats. Simply mix the quantity you need with water or milk and cook for a couple of minutes on a stove top for your baby’s porridge.
This is also a convenient form to carry when you’re traveling.
You can simply mix the powder in a cup of boiling hot water (carried in an insulated bottle or flask) and leave it covered for 5 minutes for an instant porridge.
The oats in the form of powder are also easy to digest for your little one.
Happa Organic Baby Food- Oatmeal + Banana Porridge Mix
Another creative oatmeal porridge from Happa Organic Baby Food if the Oatmeal Banana Porridge Mix. Similar to the Slurrp Farm oats powder, this is also in the form of powder but it has banana powder added to it for added nutrition and natural sweetness and flavour.
You can prepare the oatmeal the same way as you do with regular rolled oats, but since it’s in the form of a powder, it gets cooked a lot faster. It’s also very convenient when you’re on the move and only have access to hot water but not to a stove.
Like other Happa products, the oats and the banana are sourced from organic farms and are processed hygienically.
It has no unnecessarily added preservatives, flavours, colours, sugar or salt.
You want to feed your baby the most nutritious food possible and I’m sure you want it free of harmful pesticides and chemicals.
While adults can stomach any kind of food, babies’ guts are not strong enough, so choosing organic food is one way of ensuring that their stomachs are taken care of.
TummyFriendly Foods packages 100% India-organic certified and USDA certified organic oats without GMO.
This healthy food is packaged in a hygienic environment and stays fresh right until the time you open it.
After that you can transfer it into an airtight container to retain its freshness. Like all oats, this is easy to prepare with water or milk.
You can also process it in a blender to powder it and use it in your food prep for your baby.
Little Moppet Foods Banana Oats Cereal Porridge Mix
Another best selling brand of food for babies is the Little Moppet Food, made by a mother for her baby.
There are quite a few variants including the ones with oats. Ready to use, the Banana Oats Cereal Porridge Mix has nothing but the best quality, organic oats mixed with organic kerala banana powder for enhancing the flavour as well as the nutrition.
This powder is quite fine and mixes well with water without lumps. You can then cook this as usual and serve it warm for a delicious and nutritious meal.
Though on the pricier side, this mix is convenient for busy mothers looking for ways to introduce new tastes and food for their babies.
It contains no added preservatives, colours or flavours, so make sure you store it in an airtight jar once you open it.
Little Moppet Foods Oatmeal Porridge Mix
If your little one does not like sweet flavours or isn’t a huge fan of bananas, you can try the plain non-flavoured oatmeal porridge mix by Little Moppet Foods.
Plain oats also allows you to customise the porridge with flavours of your choice. It is free of added salt or sugar and is completely organic.
The powder is finely ground and blends easily with any liquid, be it milk or water.
Simply cook the oats and then mix it with fruit purees that your baby likes for a different flavour. You can also add formula to it once it is cooked to up the nutritional value.
It is priced similar to the Banana Oats Cereal Porridge Mix by the same brand.
Quaker is a pioneer in the field of oats, one of the earliest brands that introduced instant oatmeal, making our breakfasts so much healthier and easier. Infact, the name Quaker is almost synonymous with “Oats”.
While Quaker does not have a line of oatmeal specially formulated for children and babies, the regular rolled oats can be run through the blender to powder them.
The oats packed by Quaker come in well sealed packets and jars that retain the freshness and they have a pretty long shelf life if you continue to seal it well and store it in a cool, dry place. Take the sufficient quantity of oats and run them through a dry blender.
Either make this in bulk and store in a jar for a few weeks or you can powder the quantity you need everyday.
Quaker comes in several different package sizes and weights giving you the convenience of buying the quantity that you need.
You can also purchase Quaker oats in jars that have a tight lid for storage or in refill packets. Quaker does have flavoured oats as well, but my advice is to use those for adults and stick to the plain ones for your baby.
The king of breakfast cereals, Kellogg’s, also has a set of oats that are as popular as Quaker and Saffola in India.
While Kellogg’s sugary breakfast cereals have gained a bad rep over the years, you can trust the oats sold by the company. Kellogg’s packs 100% pure wholegrain oats without any added colours, sugars or salt.
Like Quaker oats, you can either cook Kellogg’s oats with water, cool it down to room temperature and feed your baby, or you can powder it in a mixer or grinder before using it.
You can add purees of other fruit like mangoes, bananas, apples or strawberries to sweeten it. This is also a good way to introduce savoury flavours to your baby by adding a bit of salt to it. Since oats naturally have a high fibre content, the meal will keep your baby happily full for a long time.
Saffola is very popular for the masala oats for adults with very interesting and delicious flavours. However, for your baby, choose the plain Saffola rolled oats or instant oats which are packed without any added flavours, salt or sugar.
Saffola is also priced reasonably and is more affordable than the oats that are specially packed and marketed for babies.
You also get a lot of discounts and deals online which makes it even cheaper and value for money.
Saffola instant oats can be a go-to food to prep for your baby because it cooks in just 3 minutes and it doesn’t require any complicated preparation or a whole lot of ingredients.
The packaging is good as the oats smell and taste fresh. After opening the packet, you will have to transfer the ingredients to another box.
If you’re looking for the texture of old fashioned oats but cannot wait around for them to cook, try Nutriorg’s Instant Oats.
These oats are kind of a mid ground between old fashioned rolled oats and today’s instant oats with a medium thick texture.
These will still need to be ground before you cook them for your baby but the organically sourced grains pack all the nutrition without unwanted pesticides, insecticides and chemicals. The oats also come in a very convenient jar so you don’t have to find another form of storage for them.
The oats sold by Nutriorg are definitely priced as a premium product and cost way higher than the other well known brands like Quaker, Kellogg’s and Saffola.
Happa oats is safe and extremely careful in providing you with the best quality food for your baby.
