Give your child a healthy advantage with these two recipes full of good nutrition

Tricia and I have a nutritionist for our girls He is part of the neurodevelopmental program NACD that we use. He also has a daughter with DS, so he has been greatly consumed with learning the nutritonal needs of children with DS. Here are two great recipes he recommended. We make this for all of our children.

The first recipe is for Thermos cereal. It is composed of healthy grains, seeds, and bran complexes. It looks difficult and intimidating at first, but it is very easy once you get used to it. After you make up a batch, it stores in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks. You then use two tablespoons per child each day. I mix it with applesauce and Presley loves it. Here's the official recipe:

The second is called a Potato Peeling broth. You take all the vegetables listed and add distilled water, boil for 20 minutes, strain, pour the liquid only back into the water jugs. Freeze some if needed. I use this by mixing about 1/4 cup broth, 1/4 cup low sugar juice, and 1/2 cup water. Tricia adds some chicken broth to hers for additional protein content. When you see the vegetable list, you are going to think there is no way my child will drink this, but my 3 year old daughter loves it. You can not even taste it. Since I began this a couple of months ago, she has not had even a sniffle, until 3 days after I ran out. I have a picture below of what my stove looks like when I am cooking it. Here is the official recipe:
