Joleanna's simple breakfast for Demetri

This is a simple, basic, standard-ratio breakfast blend:

1/3 cup dry Quinoa flakes cooked for 90 sec. in 1/2 cup water
1 tsp oil
1 tsp honey
1 kiwi
3 ounces whole non-homogenized milk

makes 8 ounces
approximately 320 calories, 9 grams of protein and fat. (pediasure 8 oz: 237
cal, 7.1 g protein, 9.4 g fat)
I compare my blends to pedisure only to appease physicians and honestly it does
give me a good cal/protein/fat ratio b/c he is sensitive to fat overload
so about 40 cal/ounce if my figures are correct. it was very thin so may go
through continuous feeds, not sure though b/c i gave it via syringes.
lol, and yes i'm the one who pre-fills or draws up all the syringes ahead of
time. it seems to make it easier for the grandmum's when they watch him.
