oi is made of cooked and mashed/pounded Taro Roots,

(bottom center-Squid Luau and going clock wise, Kalua Pig with Lomi Lomi Salmon and Poi; Opihi or Sea Limpets; LauLau and Kalua Pig with Lomi Lomi Salmon steamed white rice and that purple stuff is Sweet Potato, MMM!)
Many babies who can not tolerate any type of milk,
are given Poi that has been watered down in their bottles.

Look at some of those Islander football players!
