Blueberry Oatmeal for Baby, Toddler & Kids – the perfect warm and healthy breakfast for any age! This vivid oatmeal can be made into a baby puree, cooled into chunks for baby-led weaning, served separated with add-ins for the skeptical toddler or in a bowl with all the toppings for kids (and adults).

Blueberry Oatmeal

This vivid oatmeal is a family-favorite at my house💜.

Even my little one who isn’t easily convinced that oatmeal should be a food group is lured into this breakfast porridge because of it’s fun purple color!

I love that this oatmeal comes together in roughly 10 minutes and uses ingredients I always have on hand🙌! Because this recipe is so easy, I can easily make it while I’m making my mushroom coffee (it’s a thing, just go with it) on a busy weekday morning.

It’s also very versatile and can be served to any age of kiddos – from 6 months and up!

One Family – One Meal! 👶👧👦👩

This means you can puree up a portion for a baby puree, let some chunks cool to serve to baby as a finger food, separate out the oatmeal and toppings to serve to toddler or serve the oats in a bowl with all-the toppings for kids and adults.

  • made in 10 minutes
  • can be served to baby as a finger food or as a puree
  • toddlers, kids and adults love this oatmeal
  • for ages 6 months and up
  • fun vibrant color
  • full of antioxidants, fiber and other essential vitamins and minerals
  • can be cooked once and reheated throughout the week

  • Old-Fashioned Oats: are filled with fiber, antioxidants and micronutrients like manganese, selenium and phosphorus. In this recipe I am using old-fashioned oats, but you can also use steel cut oats as well. The cooking time will increase, so please read the package for directions. If gluten-free, make sure to use oats that are labeled gluten-free.
  • Frozen Blueberries: rich in antioxidants, high in fiber, manganese and vitamins C and K. I usually use frozen wild blueberries (from Trader Joes, but I’ve seen them at Target before) because they are smaller and easy for baby or toddler to eat. You can use any blueberries you have for this recipe, just know that you may need to cut the blueberries in half if serving them to baby as a finger food or toddler.
  • Cinnamon: this power spice helps blood sugar levels, digestion, immunity and boosts brain functions. Cinnamon also makes this oatmeal taste amazing!
  • Vanilla: is great for brining out the sweetness of the blueberries, plus it makes this oatmeal taste like blueberry pie.
  • Coconut Sugar or Maple Syrup: using sweetener is optional, and shouldn’t be added in while cooking if you are going to use for a baby puree or baby-led weaning. But you add in a little maple syrup, coconut sugar or even brown sugar while cooking if you want. You can also sweeten at the table with a drizzle of maple syrup or a pinch of coconut or brown sugar. I usually add in the sweetener as I am cooking the oats, but that is just what my family does since my kids are older.

  • In a medium saucepan, bring liquid to a boil.
  • Add in the oats, blueberries, cinnamon and vanilla, stir and reduce heat to a low simmer.
  • Cook on a simmer for 8-10 minutes or until water is absorbed, stirring occasionally.
  • Spoon into bowls, add toppings if you wish. I like to add in some more frozen blueberries on top of the cooked oatmeal because it will help cool the oats down.


You can easily have your kids help you make this oatmeal

  • Toddlers can help measure and pour the ingredients into the pot
  • They can add toppings to the oatmeal to serve.
  • They can pick out and measure all of the ingredients.
  • They can spoon the oatmeal into bowls and add toppings to the oatmeal to serve.

  • Baby Puree: make per the instructions, omitting the sugar. When finished cooking, let cool slightly and then add the desired amount to a blender or food processor. Puree for 60-90 seconds for a smooth puree adding in extra liquid (milk, water, formula or breast milk) in 1/4 cup increments if needed.
  • Baby-Led Weaning: make per the instructions, omitting the sugar. Let the oats cool almost completely. I like to place a spoonful or two on a plate to help this cooling process speed up. Once they are cool, the oat clumps will stick together making it easier for baby to be able to pick up and eat. You could serve this with a stick of toast with butter and some banana chunks. If you chunk bananas up with your fingers they won’t be as slippery as they are if you cut them with a knife.
  • Toddler: I have found that serving foods to toddler that are separated help toddler be able to categorize foods better and be more comfortable eating them. So I like to serve these oats on a plate by themselves with sliced bananas with hemp seeds sprinkled on top and toast triangles. To help toddler be part of the process and in control – you can have them add some frozen blueberries (helps the oatmeal cool), a pinch of sugar or any other topping to their oats.
  • Kids (and adults): load up a bowl with the oats, sliced bananas with hemp hearts and some frozen blueberries to help cool the oats down. Really, you can add whichever topping your kids prefer here.

How to Store this Blueberry Oatmeal

Place the leftover oats in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to one week. To reheat, place desired amount of oats in a micro-wave safe bowl or in a small saucepan, add in a little milk or cream and heat until just warm, adding in more milk if needed.

Note on Blueberries: I like to use wild blueberries in this recipe because they tend to be way smaller than standard blueberries and easier for baby or toddler to eat. You can totally use regular blueberries but you may have to cut them in half for easier eating. 

Storage: any leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. If pureeing for baby, you can store leftovers in the freezer for up to 2 months. 

Reheat: to reheat, place desired amount of oats in a micro-wave safe bowl or in a small saucepan, add in a little milk or cream and heat until just warm, adding in more milk if needed.
