Baby Brekkie Ideas…

I was recently asked for some ideas for baby breakfasts, which got me thinking…. my baby is pretty easy with breakfast, we tend to stick with a range of cereals and add fruit to them. At 8am I’m not usually feeling in the mood for cooking. However it can also be good to vary things and most foods can be prepared to some extent the night before. Some here are my baby brekkie ideas, please let me know yours…

  • Readybrek with milk and fruit (we love banana and blueberries).
  • Scrambled egg on toast – make sure eggs are well cooked I find this best cooked on the cooker and not in the microwave. Try adding chopped ham/tomatoes/mushrooms whilst cooking the egg.
  • Bagel with cream cheese and tomato
  • Fruit salad with yoghurt
  • French toast/Eggy bread
  • Pancakes with fruit puree
  • Crumpet with butter and marmite
  • Hard boiled egg with toast
  • English muffins with melted cheese and cooked mushrooms
  • American pancakes with berries – see my previous post, use plain flour if wanted: http://dietitianuk.wordpress.com/2011/09/16/wheat-freegluten-free-pancakes/ 
  • Porridge fingers – Take a handful of porridge oats, and add just enough milk to cover them in wide-bottomed bowl, microwave for 60s.  Allow to cool before slicing into triangles/fingers. Or add mashed bananas and microwave for 90s.
  • Porridge – add different combinations of fruit to oats, add milk and cook in microwave. We love sultanas with apple and cinnamon at present. Baby loves the juice sultanas 🙂
  • Griddled peach slices served on an English muffin with cottage cheese.
  • Homemade Muesli (for baby and mummy!) – 65g oats with 175 ml apple juice, refridgerate overnight. Next morning grate 1 apple and 1 pear, add a little lemon juice and mix in, add any other fruit wanted and serve with full fat natural yoghurt.
Scrambled egg on toast!
