It tastes deliciously creamy and is packed with fibre, protein, iron, calcium AND if that wasn’t all enough it also has omega-3 fatty acids. The perfect snack or breakfast or treat for your little one.

Granny’s 10 Minute Brown Bread

This recipe is the quickest brown bread you’ll ever make, and the most delicious. It is full of seeds that pack a punch and make this an insanely healthy bread. For smaller babies, I cut the crust off and give them the super soft inside. It’s a fantastic healthy breakfast for toddlers. It works brilliant for soup, dipping, with chia seed jam or with some nut butter spread on it.

Freezer Friendly breakfast for toddlers

Some mornings can be chaotic so it’s great to know that certain types of foods are just as yummy and nutrient-dense even after freezing. So you simply prepare a few mornings ahead and take it out of the freezer the night before. Grab in the morning ready to go or gently heat up in the microwave if that’s what you like! It’s the perfect healthy breakfast for toddlers.

Apple and Cinnamon Super Breakfast Muffins

This recipe is so ideal for little babies who are starting out on their baby led journey as they are soft, full of nourishing goodness and the best part is that they can be made in a big batch and frozen.

This is just the perfect food for toddlers too!

Baby Led Weaning Porridge Fingers with Berries

Porridge fingers are one of the best baby-led weaning breakfast recipes you will ever try!

Smoothie breakfast for toddlers - Purple Smoothie

Blueberry and Coconut Swirl Mommy & Baby Smoothie

They are little heroes of the fruit world as they are so super good for you and your little ones. My mother instilled in us as children to eat our blueberries as they are rich in antioxidants but new research shows that they are also great for improving memory too! Great for the older kids now that they are back at school.

Smoothie breakfast for toddlers - Mango Lassi

Banana and Turmeric Lassi

When I think of turmeric I think of an Indian curry, but this spice is really versatile and goes well with fruit, especially yellow fruits; pineapple, mango or banana. Not only does it being a little exotic flavour to this drink it also brings with it an abundance of health benefits. Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and is also really high in antioxidants. This smoothie makes a wonderfully different health breakfast for toddlers and one that Mommies or Daddies will love too!
