Weaning Step 4 - Healthy Breakfast

BREAKFAST: THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY

Breakfast is important – it may even be the most important meal of the day. It gives your baby the energy he needs – until the next feed; and it’s a good way of establishing a routine. As your baby starts to eat more, and more often, he will appreciate being fed at the same times every day. Make it an event the whole family will enjoy and let the day start with happiness!

6 VALUABLE TIPS FOR BREAKFAST TIME

  • 1

    Keep feeding him milk in the mornings, but just enough to not spoil his breakfast

  • 2

    Don’t worry if he eats very small amounts at the beginning

  • 3

    Limit foods that contain gluten until he’s 6 months and older

  • 4

    No soft-boiled egg yolk or runny yolks before he’s 12 months old

  • 5

    Make feeding time as relaxing as possible, while also making him understand that breakfast time is time to eat

  • 6

    Encourage discovery – make food that is easy to hold (like toast and sliced banana) or easy to scoop with a spoon (like cereals)
