I have been giving Weetabix to DD for breakfast during the past few months and she seems quite fed up with it now. Any suggestion for something different and healthy?

Porridge, French toast, Shreddies? Actually, not sure of their salt content though...

Porridge, banana mashed up up with milk and honey, toast and marmite, boiled egg, poached egg, scrambled egg, muffin, yoghurt, eggy bread, baked beans, ready brek ...

Crumpets though she will probably just suck the life out of them.

Eggy bread

Sausages in beans

My DD (19months) currently loves smoked fish (I get smoked trout from Lidl and just break off chunks and give it to her), and cheesy scrambled egg for breakfast. The addition of cheese makes scrambled egg acceptable - otherwise no!

She has also enjoyed steamed and buttered broccoli with grated cheese. (I like veg for breakfast, so this started with her stealing mine)

Plain greek yogurt (Lidl do a delicious 10% fat one, very filling)



Scotch pancakes. We make them with oats - just put 100g oats, 1-2 tbsp honey (depending on how sweet you like it), 1 egg and a slosh of milk in the liquidiser and blend til smooth (adjust milk quantity if needed). Fry spoonfuls in a buttered frying pan. DD eats them plain, I slather mine in butter and scoff while hot.

Baked beans

Smoked fish is very high in salt, so is not a good option for an infant.

I found that supermarket own brand cornflakes and rice crispies go down well, and are lower in salt and sugar than the Kellogg's version.

Aged 1 your child may enjoy natural yoghurt, if not already used to the very sugary ones marketed to children.

I forgot - with the oaty scotch pancakes you need a heaped tsp of baking powder! Very important grin

In this house:

Porridge (either with berries or bananas)
Dippy egg with soilders

my 8 month old loves cinnamon and raisin bagels - I often have one buttered for breakfast and in spite of being toothless she manages to chomp her way through a quarter of one. I think they are possibly a bit too salty for an everyday breakfast but she adores them. She also likes fingers of toast with philadelphia (and she loves chocolate spread, shh bad mummy alert but I was just letting her share my breakfast...)

Toast and fruit salad here most days.

Yoghurt with berries goes down well and ready brek with a spoonful of fruit purée.

Readybrek with blueberries or bananas here most mornings
Pancakes, or raisin toast at the weekends.
Going to try those oaty pancakes. They look yum!

Scrambled eggs on toast, reduced salt and sugar beans on toast, peanut butter and banana on crumpets/bagel/toast, yoghurt and fruit, breakfast muffins (you can make a batch and freeze and defrost one at a time)

Mine both like ready brek with grapes, chopped banana, raisins or berries. They like toast and jam and a cooked breakfast too. They're older now but had these from a young age. Would she enjoy a toasted buttered hit cross bun?

Thanks for all the suggestion! So far, we've tried eggy bread and porridge, but she doesn't seem very keen. Well she had a few bits but that's it, wouldn't go for more. Smoky fish and vegetables for breakfast?! Wow, that's very creative smile She loves yoghurt and fruits, but I normally just give them to her during the days whenever she feels like to have any. She likes cheerios too, not with milk though, just picking them up on her tray. Might try the scotch pancakes as they sound very healthy and yummy, so as many other nice ideas...
