Whether you are just starting your baby on solids or they have been eating them for some time, you may be wondering how to make breakfast time more interesting and nutritious. Here are five great breakfast ideas you can try that are bound to peak your baby’s interest and appetite.
1. Berries and Oats
A great meal your baby will love to start their day with is a nice serving of berries and oats. Preparation is simple. Make a small bowl of oatmeal for your child. Add a small helping of berry fruit puree. Be sure to watch the consistency. You can use any berries that your baby has already eaten before, such as strawberries and blueberries.
2. Oatmeal and Avocados
Avocados are one of the most nutritious fruits available in the markets. Mix an avocado puree with oatmeal cereal and the health benefits skyrocket tremendously. You can also serve your baby a bowl of oatmeal cereal with avocado chunks on the side if they are getting ready for the finger food stage.
3. Cottage Cheese and Scrambled Eggs
Two foods that work well together and pack a powerful punch of protein are cottage cheese and eggs. This breakfast is ideal for babies who aren’t too picky about textures and love to feed themselves. If scrambled eggs aren’t on your baby’s radar, you can use quinoa as a substitute.
4. Applesauce and Mangos
If your baby is a picky eater, you can’t go wrong with applesauce and mangos. You can prepare it in two different ways. You can add mango puree into the applesauce and mix them together. You can also chop up some mango pieces and serve them on the side of a bowl of applesauce.
5. Bananas and Oats
Start your baby’s day off with bananas and oatmeal to give them a healthy dose of protein and potassium. You can either give them a bowl of oats cereal with some sliced bananas or you can mash the bananas and mix them into the oatmeal.
