Hi, this is Shanis Windland on behalf of ExpertVillage.

In our video series on making your own baby food we're going to talk about howto make baby cereal and specifically how to make baby oatmeal cereal.

I think this personallyI think this is the easiest one to make so that is why I'm showing it to you.

Becauseit's really fast and really easy to make.

You can use a food processor or blender forthis but I find that actually using a cofffe grinder is the easist way to do it.

All youhave to do is get some oats (plain oatmeal) and the slow cook time is better for you thanthe instant kind of oatmeal.

So I usually by this kind and just add them to the coffeegrinder.

Just simply grind them up to a really thin powder.

As you can see it comes out areally thin powder and that's essentially what you are buying when you buy baby oatmealcereal at the store.

Then I just add it to a bowl now you can take this plain powderand store it to cook it later and I'll show you how to cook it in a second.

So we're goingto learn how to cook the oatmeal that we just made the only thing really need to know aboutit.

The amount that you make all you need is one part oatmeal to three parts of waterso I'm going to use a 1/4 of a cup.

I'm going to get a 1/4 of a cup of my oatmeal powderand add it to my pan and then I'm also going to add 3/4 of a cup of water.
