Ds1 is now 7 montsh but he has weetabix (yes I know its a packet ) with mashed banana or just a banana or toast or......... Ok hats about it
I find breakfast the hardest to give from scratch so do cereal most of the time.

yoghurt and fruit

whats wrong with breakfast cereal thats not of the cheerio's variety?

MrsBadger Fri 06-Jul-07 11:25:26

any no-sugar-no-salt adult cereal
splosh with milk to soften and pick up in fingers
rice krispies etc, but mini shredded what v good.

(means you have to spend one Tesco visit reading packets till you work out which are ok though)

porridge, porridge, porridge, (bit stuck in a rut, ) She is only just six months though.

mini oatibix and a slice of melon.
toast and marmite (hmm, maybe not marmite for 6 mo, but soft cheese? butter?)

Thanks girls.

You'd think bt No4 I'd know what to feed them.....

I cannot believe I didn't think of TOAST!!!

Lol, I'm on #5 remember and I am finding the solids thing so hard.
Poor boy doesn't like to hold food I think he's going to be one of those children who hates messy hands.

Porridge, sweetened with a bit of cooked frozen summer fruits/stewed apples if you want to add a bit.
Baby rice with same fruit as above.
Mashed banana/avocado - although she was not so keen on this, either together or seperately.

DD also liked to hold things, but this might have been closer to 7 months? She had scrambled egg, cooked with a splash of milk, in the mircrowave for 1min (1000w), cut into chunks, so she could grab it and hold it (keeps a shape in mircrowave) Great first finger food, as long as your LO is ok with egg.

slices of fruit
toast smeared with mashed up fruit ( usually banana)

dd is nearly 10 month, but has been having the above since she started foods at about 7m

magnolia1 Fri 06-Jul-07 13:35:34

Ds1 is 7m and hates holding food. Not sure why he just gets really pee'd off and squeezes it so tight it flies out of his hand or breaks

PavlovtheCat Fri 06-Jul-07 13:40:15

Magnolia - LOL I have this image of a little iron man sat in his high chair, with throbbing arm muscles and an incredible hulk type of expression, and a peice of scrambled egg squished in his little mits!!

It's still early stage weaning for DD but for breakfast she has mashed banana or stewed apple or pear, either alone or in combination, sometimes mixed with yoghurt and sometimes I add in dried apricot as well - all those combinations give her something different everyday of the week, but I'm going to try cereal or porridge next .

Pav that pretty much describes him

Highlander Fri 06-Jul-07 15:00:55

May offer him a scrap of toast from my breakfast. Very occasionaly he gets offered Ready Brek after I've taken DS1 to nursery. He rarely takes more than 3tsp.

ScottishMummy Fri 06-Jul-07 15:18:25

ready break

or organic yoghurt and banana

I found the recipe for a healthy banana cake in one of the threads (not sure which one though) and ds liked that one, did not contain sugar and was made with wholemeal flour.

Aitch Fri 06-Jul-07 21:20:19

the recipe's on the blog if you're looking for it, lth. i find mini shreddies (own brand, obv) and porridge are best for us.

LadyTophamHatt Sun 08-Jul-07 08:41:24

He's just had his first taster of taost.

Generrally squished it together, moving from one hand to the other.

I think some of it went in his mouth...he certainly had a butter smeared face

Is thsi your famous blog Aitch? No time to read it ATM but will have a nosey later....

Aitch Sun 08-Jul-07 11:15:55

that's the one, lth. there are some really good recipes on there, i'd have to say. i didn't write most of them...
