    Default Multigrain bread - ok for a 11month old?

    Hi guys, I am needing inspiration for more self feeding foods to offer my 11month old DS for lunch.
    Thinking about trying sandwiches but not sure if the bread I eat is ok for him as it has lots of whlolegrains, quinoa and flaxseeds in it. I think I read somewhere that little ones should not have seeds in case they inhale them, not sure if that just applies to loose seeds or if those in bread are a risk too...?

    Any other ideas for lunch would also be greatly appreciated! I feel like I keep giving him the same thing....

    So far he self feeds things like;
    Fruit - kiwi, banana, pear, strawberries, mandarins, grapes, cherry tomato
    Veg - broccoli, cauliflower, olives, green beans
    Cheese
    Cruskits
    Mini muffins


    I also spoon feed yoghurt, baked beans, pasta with bolognese, mashed veg or fruit, cooked salmon or tuna.

    Yes wholegrain bread is fine! Mine have had nothing else from around 8 months on.

    Wholemeal would be better ( if it's made with whole wheat) or even better is spelt bread or try wholemeal sourdough - whole grains are harder for kids ( and us) to digest - try wholemeal mountain bread wraps, I found for my DS at that age I used to make a wrap with avocado, goats cheese and tomato and toast it, it was easier to hold than a sandwich and would not fall apart!
    The key is try a huge variety of breads/grains not just the same thing all the time

    Some lunch ideas;
    Brown rice cakes with almond butter or avocado and cheese
    Egg pancake cut into fingers ( add mushroom/cheese/herbs etc)
    Homemade salmon or veggie or chicken nuggets
    Zucchini slice ( make in mini muffin tins / great finger food)
    Mini falafel balls
    Quiche or frittata

    I found a great self feeding food is meatballs- lamb, or beef or pork- with anything you want to add flavour- my faves are adding cumin, garlic, any herbs I have, sometimes grated apple, zuchini and so on- maybe with a yoghurt dip, or hummous dip- the options are endless. Plus you can make a whole batch and freeze in portions. You can cut them into small pieces to start with and I found this to be better than a solid piece of meat at that age.

    Default Thanks!

    Some fantastic suggestions guys, thank you so much! I love the toasted wrap idea instead of a sandwich, very clever! 😄
