Hi, any simple ideas for what to put on toast for 6 month DD? TIA x

Dd3 is 8 months & has banana, peanut butter, spready cheese, cheese & tomato.

Thanks Harriet, she loves banana so that would be good. Are there any spready cheeses to avoid (for salt reasons?)

I have found the cheaper ones have less salt ( shops own V phillie) but I just read the info on whatever's in store& get the lowest( small selection in our town)

I was advised to look at salt consumption over a day or week so if she has cheese at one meal she has no salt at another to balance it

That sounds sensible, thanks again for your help x

hummus
avocado mixed with cottage cheese
blitz up some baked beans or butter beans/kidney beans mixed with cream cheese - also mushrooms chopped up v small and mixed with cream cheese have been a hit

have tried these with 6.5mo DD on toast, bagels and rice cakes although she's discarding the bread as soon as she's sucked the topping off!

Thanks MrsGubbins, I quite like the sound of the mushrooms, we may both try that in the morning!

Hazelnut, almond or peanut butter - Meridian brand do a few different nut spreads with no sugar or salt added, some have palm or sunflower oil added, but the three spreads I mentioned are just ground nuts, with nothing at all added.

Sunwheel brand also do a no added sugar fruit spread - it's made with concentrated fruit juices.

Actually our LO also likes unsalted butter or extra virgin olive oil on her toast - I don't bother spreading anything else other than oil or butter on it, if it's to accompany something such as scrambled egg.
