Porridge Fingers: perfect for baby led weaning breakfasts.

It’s a fact. I love weaning, especially baby led weaning. It’s such a delight to watch a baby learn how to handle food and watch them try new tastes and textures. However it is one messy process! I tend to take the attitude that it is all one big learning process and a little mess is a small price to pay. There are some mornings when I need a quick breakfast that has less chance of being thrown a fair distance 😉 this is my go to breakfast on those days. One thing I particularly like is that I can prepare it the night before, saving me even more time in the mornings. I take them out of the fridge and take the chill off in the microwave.

The cooked Porridge Fingers

 

These porridge fingers are soft and squidgy, so lovely for little fingers to pick up. I either put berries in them or serve fruit on the side. They have gone down so well in our house that I now have to make up a large tray as Miss K (who is almost 4 years) eats them too.

Use your usual milk (breast milk works well as does cows milk) and experiment with the fruit. These were made with redcurrants.
