One of my most popular posts of all time is about how to start your baby on solids with baby led weaning foods. And while those foods can literally be just about anything provided they are the right texture and cut to the appropriate size, it can be helpful to have some specific meal ideas to get you started with feeding your baby. Breakfast is a super easy place to start, as many breakfast foods lend themselves well to baby lead weaning – from pancakes and waffles, to softer fruits and small cereals – all are great choices. For more specific ideas, check out these 15 Baby Led Weaning Breakfast options your baby will love!
12+ Baby Led Weaning Breakfast Ideas
The whole idea behind baby led weaning is to allow your baby to show interest in food naturally, and ultimately eat whatever you are eating. Be sure to see my tips for starting baby led weaning foods to ensure you are presenting foods that are the appropriate size and texture for your baby’s still developing eating skills. Also, always remain close by while your baby is eating to monitor them closely for choking, and allow them to explore the food and feed themselves independently.
While baby led weaning is intended to encourage your baby to eat exactly the same meals as you, American breakfasts are often heavy on sugar. You want to make sure the first baby led weaning foods you offer are low on added sugars, salts, high in fruits and vegetables, and be cognizant of monitoring for allergies as you present new foods for the first time.
