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.
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.
No salt, No sugar, just wholegrain goodness, milk and fruit.
Here is my “after” picture, this is a less messy breakfast for us 😉
It’s all to easy to get stuck in a rut with breakfasts, we do it as adults, and when you are a parent you suddenly have to feed a little tummy and your own. It can feel like a big responsiblity – it is. So how about getting the advice from a top dietitian and mummy?
I love giving weaning advice and I had such fun weaning my own little one. Almost everywhere I go other mummies ask me for top tips and advice, so I’ve decided to start my own range of Ebooks. Now I don’t have a big publishing company behind me so right now these are going to consist of no frills, simple, practical advice . When I get cleverer I’ll hope to add in fancy pictures and graphics, but I figure what is really needed is the basics!
So here is my first Ebook: Baby Breakfasts. It contains Meal ideas including fresh ideas for what to do with cereals, eggs and toast. Some yummy recipes for baking breakfasts goods and top tips from myself too.
There are more to come. I’d love to hear the subject you’d like an Ebook on.
