An easy weight-gaining recipe to make for your baby and toddler using dry pap powder. Pap, also known as akamu, ogi or koko in Igbo, Yoruba and Hausa languages respectively is made from corn, which is soaked, ground into a paste and then sieved. Research shows that the process of soaking corn causes fermentation, which actually improves its nutritional value, while reducing the anti-nutrients in the corn that are harmful to the body. I will not go into details here but if you want to know more, always check out my YouTube Channel where I intend to provide information and tips as well as visual recipes…don’t forget to subscribe too. To make this baby’s pap & egg custard, you need to first make your pap and also turn the wet pap into dry form for more shelf life. Get the videos of how to do it here and here.
Pap & egg custard is a nutritious combination of carbohydrate, protein, minerals, vitamins and fat, especially omega-3 fatty acids which are important in baby brain development. So, incorporating this into your baby’s diet is a big plus because it is simple, easy and cheap to make with just pap and egg yolk. You can also make Banana egg custard or incorporate banana or other fruits into this baby’s pap & egg custard too. So, instead of using corn flour to make egg custard, why not use pap.
Baby’s Pap & Egg Custard
