i have always given my ds whose 3 in June readybrek for breakfast, but lately he just doesnt fancy it, infact he must be so bored of it that he gags!!

so dh has branflakes and ds had a bowl of it yesterday and today...whilst in tesco i was about to get cornflakes when ds said to get branflakes as they would both eat it...i said it may be too much fibre in it for a 3 year old to eat everyday for breakfast

is it?

urm, i should preview before posting

ds never said to get the branflakes dh did

i would imagine ds would say get 'cocopops'

my ds (nearly 3) has branflakes and cornflakes mixed (his request) some morning, weetabix other mornings, or magic porridge (with honey) other mornings - on the branflake mornings it isn't obviously too much fibre IYKWIM! (by the way, he then goes to the childminder and has cocopops! Best of both worlds my boy )

don't see why not been feeding mine shreddies and granary bread since 6 months old

if his poo starts getting affected then cut down or mix with other cereals

make sure he gets lots of liquids
