Can you please share some baby and toddler breakfast ideas? This is the most common question that I`ve been stumbling upon while browsing facebook groups dedicated to baby nutrition. This is also the question I was feverishly researching when I started feeding my daughter with solid foods. I`m a big adversary of instant porridges, biscuits or purees that are available in stores. So I knew that I would cook for my baby from the very beginning. A great help to me was Maggie Pashova’s book Healthy Babies, you can check out her site here. The grain porridge ideas are based on information from her book. I`ve also checked other nutrition books, different blogs and facebook groups, changed and developed recipes to suit my daughter’s age and the food she was fed at the time.
Keep in mind that I’m not a nutritionist and the suggestions below are based on the information that I`ve read, the experience with my daughter and her food preferences. When you start feeding your baby with solid foods always offer only 1-2 teaspoons of the new food at a time and watch for reactions. Only then you can act more boldly and combine different tastes.
The baby and toddler breakfast ideas below are suitable for children of 9 months and above. The exception is the home cereal porridge ideas that can be given from the 6th month onward. Everything depends, of course, on your child, his or her personal preferences and his or her general health. See the details below.
