Kata eats a lot of cut up banana or cheese. I like muenster cheese because its healthy and kind of soft. I try not to give her too much added sugar, but sometimes she gets plain cheerios with her banana, or I will give her cereal bars. We get the earths best for toddlers cereal bars-she loves them but theyre messy!
Every morning I have an organic pastry bar (it's like ap optart but there is no added sugar and the fruit is organic in the filling) I always break off a piece for MIcah. I usually will give him an apple slice as well.
Cam gets cheerios - as long as you get the plain ones they aren't much different than puffs. And then usually fruit - apple, orange (with the peel, but he has no teeth yet), strawberries, pear, blueberries. Sometimes I'll give him applesauce. Occasionally I will do veggies instead but usually veggies for lunch and dinner because I eat fruit with breakfast and veggies with my lunch and dinner. He's also had the edge of my toast, and some of my oatmeal (just regular instant oatmeal).
I don't know if you've introduced eggs but I am a big fan of the banana pancake for breakfast.
1 egg whipped with 1 mashed banana and fried like a pancake.
You can add other ingredients too. This time I added cinnamon and parmesean and next time I think I'll do some blueberries and fry it in coconut oil instead for a different flavour.
I give him some when I make it fresh then I cut the rest into strips and freeze it. Then to serve I just take out a strip and chop it and give it to him frozen. It dissolves really well and I think he likes having a cold treat. He goes nuts for them!
These are some really great breakfast ideas. Mostly I only go with cereals, which I didn't know till recently he was really picky about. He hated the Heinz one's, finally we got him Earth's Best and he has started eating his cereal again. Other than that, I wasn't sure what else to offer him.
For those of you who offer fruits to your los, do you give banana, apple slices etc in their little hands to feed by themselves or you feed them? I once gave a piece to him and it was all over the place, not just in his mouth .... lol
