Baby Formula

 Posted by: Kitty - smileyaviary@hotmail.com -   June 13, 1998

 5 cups water
 1 cup quick-cooking oatmeal (not 'instant'   oats)
 1/2 cup raw wheat germ (from health-food store)
 1 tbs corn oil

 Mix and cook the above cereal for 5  minutes,  remove from stove, and add one 4 1/2-ounce jar of baby vegetables (strained garden vegetables), a combination of peas, carrots and spinach. (For cockatoos and cockatiels increase this amount by 1/3 to 1/2).

 1 cup powdered milk
 2 cups sunflower meal (from health-food store)

 If sunflower meal is not available, purchase  raw hulled sunflower kernels and grind them in a blender. Add 2 slices of very dry whole wheat bread mixed with 1 1/2 to 2 cups sunflower kernels, and grind them together in the blender to prevent the kernels from becoming soggy and sticky. The bread will add nutrition to this formula.

    Note:  I omitted  1/2 tsp salt from original recipe.
