::Resipi:: Barley Millet Porridge with Sultanas

Serve 1-2

  • 1/4 cup of organic barley flakes

  • 1/4 cup of organic hulled millet

  • A handful of organic sultanas/raisins

  • A dash of organic cinnamon

Rinse the barley and millet in a mesh collander under running water. Add 1-1.5 cups of water and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to medium-low heat and let simmer, partially covered for 15-20 minutes or until both ingredients are cooked and have fully absorbed the water. Stir occasionally. Meanwhile, cut the sultanas into tinier pieces (in order to prevent them from being a choking hazard)*. When cooked, add the sultanas, a dash of cinnamon and serve!


Sultanas or any other similar dried fruits are usually not recommended for younger babies as they may pose as a choking hazzard. Also, they are believe to cause cavities in children as they are high in natural sugars. This, however has no concluding evidence.

Con list aside, sultanas is packed full of nutrients. They are low in both fat & cholestrol and high in potassium & iron. They also contain calcium and fiber.

So, to serve or not to serve is a really a judgement call. If you are uncomfortable with serving sultanas to your child (which is totally understandable), just omit it from the recipe above.

*Alternatively, you could soak the sultanas in warm water and mashing them with a fork
