DD 8mo usually has weetbix with fruit and a little yoghurt for breakky but I think she's over it. Any ideas? She eats small amounts of finger food but never gets much down. We have toast, crumpets or scrambled eggs occasionally.

I Have always alternated DS brekkys as I wanted to give him variety and not get used to the same thing all the time! From about 7 months he has been having 4 alternate breakfasts;
Egg pancake ( omelette) 2 eggs mixed with whatever fresh herbs and whatever is in the fridge ( mushrooms/tomatoes/feta) and chia seeds
Wholemeal or spelt toast with avocado or nut butters
Homemade banana pancakes ( blueberry was far too messy!)
Quinoa porridge with his formula and pear ( til about 1) now its organic cereal with a2 or almond milk

I make my own pancakes ( actually use Jamie Oliver's recipe but omit the sugar) , i think at home its best to omit salt and sugar to kids food as its not needed and you don't want them getting used to it - pancake recipe is;
- 6 large organic Eggs
- 2 tsps baking powder
- 280ml A2 Milk
- 1-1/3 cups wholemeal flour
- 2 bananas thinly sliced
1- Separate eggs, mix egg yolks with flour and baking powder add milk until you have a smooth thick batter
2. Whisk whites until stiff ( like pavlova- i use kitchen aid) and fold into batter
3- Cook in pan on one side, add banana slices and flip
The banana caramalises and is yummy! Makes about 20
After he turned 12 months I add a splash of real maple syrup
I don't think they need sugar but the recipe was for 1/2 cup , they also freeze really well
Quinoa porridge -
Buy puffed quinoa from health food shop ( looks like mini rice bubbles)
I added warm formula under 12 months then either A2 or almond milk after then either chopped pear or berries and mix!
I made mine really quite thick and I gave him loaded spoons to feed himself as we did BLW

I alternate between:
- peanut butter or Vegemite toast
- French toast (i dip bread in beaten egg + cinnamon and drizzle a tiny bit of pure maple syrup on it)
- banana oat pikelets (oats, milk, egg, banana, blueberries).

I did porridge with stewed apple/pear or mashed banana, stewed fruit with baby muesli, scrambled eggs, bircher muesli, baked egg custard and banana or stewed fruit if I was feeling particularly energetic!
Really they just ate what we ate!
