Native Americans used to use acorn meal in water as a supplement /
replacement for breast milk, when babies were being weaned.  It's
incredibly nutritious.  And before they're soaked so humans can eat them,
they contain high levels of soluble sugars.

Alas, their tannin levels would poison humans who ate them straight.
