A recipe using baby foods that’s perfect for older dogs.


  • 1 jar chicken, ham, turkey or beef-flavored baby food
  • 4 teaspoons dry milk powder
  • 4 teaspoons dry cream of wheat; Nestum or Cerelac

Veggie or combo treats:

  • 1 jar baby food in any flavor your dog likes
  • 6 ½ teaspoons dry milk powder
  • 6 ½ teaspoons cream of wheat


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Use two large baking trays and line with baking paper.
  • In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients together. The batter should be shapeable, not too thin, as long as it will form a ball.
  • Allow the mixture to rest at room temperature for about 15 minutes.
  • Wet your hands and form small balls and place on baking tray. Use a fork dampened with water and press the balls into a flat disc, about half a centimeter.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Store the treats in the refrigerator for up to a month or in the freezer for up to 3 months.


Different brands of baby food may contain different amounts of water, therefore add little extra and equal amounts of additional dry ingredients if necessary (dry milk powder & dry cream of wheat). Adding too much of the dry ingredients will create harder treats.

* Consult with your veterinarian about any allergies your dog may have.
