From speaking with parents over the years I have found that breakfast ideas for a baby or toddler appear to be one of the major struggles for some families. Here I share some great breakfast ideas that baby, toddler and parents will love! Remember, you do not have to prepare separate breakfasts for different family members - you can all have the same breakfast, just serve it to suit your baby.
My Bubble & Squeak recipe is packed full of delicious, wholesome veg and a great way to use up any leftover mash, carrots and cabbage! You can make this into a purée with a bit of texture, or as a finger food for your weaning baby. Batch cook this tasty recipe and portion out into your weaning pots to freeze so you can serve it up any day of the week!
Did you know that salmon is considered a "super-food"? This is because this fish is packed with multiple health benefits, such as fatty acids, protein, Vitamin B and Omega 3. It can even help to improve focus at school! However, it can often be frustratingly difficult to convince your little ones to try it due to its heavy fishy scent. That is why my Baked Salmon Fingers are a full-proof way to get salmon into your family's diet. It's a yummy alternative to fish fingers, and I guarantee that your kids will love its crispy, cheesy coating! These are great to store in the freezer, and are a fantastic finger food for weaning babies too!

From the perfect Indian fakeaway to yummy picnic treats, there is something for everyone!

These baked chicken meatballs are a great alternative to beef and perfect as a finger food for your baby. They are also perfect for the whole family as a mid week meal.
