5 healthy Breakfasts
by Monique Cormack
Breakfast is often one of the best meals of the day to enjoy with your baby. They’ve (hopefully!) had a good amount of sleep overnight, and their appetite and alertness are at their peak. Take advantage of this time to offer a tasty, satisfying meal.
These are some of my favourite healthy breakfasts to share with my twin boys. Most of these can actually be made in advance, too, so you can have a few things ready to go in the morning and not be rushing around when your little one is hungry!
Our Feeding Set-Up
- Target ‘Snacka’ high chairs (almost identical to the very popular Ikea ‘Antilop’ high chairs but the seat belt includes a shoulder harness which stops them climbing up and out a bit better!)
- Pimp My High Chair adjustable footrests for added stability in the high chair (lets baby place their feet on something while eating which makes them feel more secure and lets them concentrate more on eating, not balancing)
- Silicone suction plates (I love the EZPZ brand, they wash well and are very durable)
- Our Grabease cutlery sets! I’m currently loading up the spoon and fork and then handing it over to the bubs as they are only 13 months, however in a few months’ time I’ll be encouraging them to scoop up the food on their own.
TIP – You can also pre-load your grabease cutlery and leave them on the tray for Bubs to pick up independently.
