This wasn't so bad when Mathilda was still exclusively breast fed, as I could let her have her breakfast as I ate mine or was still half asleep in bed!
Now that she's on solids I need to prepare her something to eat too and with my lack of motivation skills in the morning, I like to prepare something quick and easy. So I give her baby cereal or oats.
Now, I don't add milk to these as I'm too lazy to express my own milk and don't want to use formula.
Baby cereal made with just water is eeeeeeewwwwwwwww! Mathilda wont eat much of it on its own and I felt bad even offering it to her.
So here is a list of things I have added to the cereal over the months that have been a hit with Mathilda.
- Blueberries. These are super healthy, packed with vitamins and flavour. A favourite with Mathilda. Great mixed with cereal or as a breakfast-time finger food.
- Mashed banana. This make a yummy creamy cereal for baby to enjoy.
- Steamed apple or pear (if you're feeling perky enough to make it!) can substitute the water/milk, as it's quite juicy.
These are just a few ideas, but really the options are endless. Have fun experimenting!
