Preparation and cooking:

1. Place the rice and milk into a saucepan
2. Cook for a couple of minutes then add the cinnamon, nutmeg and grated pear and place the lid on the saucepan. Cook on a low heat for 30 minutes or until cooked (check on the rice and give it a stir every five minutes or so.
3. Serve on its own once cooled and drizzle a little honey on top (honey should only be given to babies over 12 months old)

Please note : you can also cook the rice in the oven – but this takes 2 hours – just follow the instructions on the packet.
