    Default Breakfast Ideas?

    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.
    TIA

    Default Breakfast Ideas?

    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

    Default Breakfast Ideas?

    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

    Instructions

    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:

    - weetbix
    - 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!
