Since breakfast is the first meal of the day, it should be healthy, nutritious and filling.


Therefore, you as a parent should ensure that the breakfast foods for your baby are a perfect blend of nourishment and taste.


Introducing a variety of fruits, vegetables, meats and grains can help you provide diverse tastes and nutrition to your baby.


Coming up with new breakfast ideas every day may be challenging.


In this article, I will provide you with a list of healthy and easy-to-prepare breakfast recipes that your 6 to 12 months baby might enjoy.


1. Multi-vegetable puree















It is a simple and classic breakfast for your baby and quite popular as the first breakfast for your baby.


You will need

Vegetables of your choice such as potatoes, peas, carrots, etc.


Water


How to

Start by choosing a mix of vegetables that you would normally give your baby. Cook the vegetables in a pressure cooker or steam or bake until they are soft and tender.


Transfer the vegetable and the stock to a blender and blend them till they reach a thin consistency. Vegetable stock contains a lot of vital nutrients so never drain it away.


Add some boiled water, breast milk or milk formula to further thin the consistency of the puree if required.


Once done, let the mixture cool down and feed it to your baby.



2. Fruit puree














Fruit puree consists of fresh fruits.


You will need

Fruits of your choice such as apples, mangoes, bananas.


Water


How to

Start by peeling and pureeing the fruits of your choice. You can do this by putting the fruits in a blender.


Add water to thin the mixture if required.

3. Banana and rice porridge


















We use rice because it is gluten-free, unlike wheat. Do not need to worry about allergies.


Rice flakes can make a great breakfast cereal for your baby.


You will need

1 cup rice or rice flakes


1 cup chopped banana


3 cups water


1 cup milk formula or expressed milk (optional)

Boil the rice or rice flakes in a cooking pot till they are soft and mashy without any presence of solid grains.


Add some chopped bananas and optional milk formula or expressed milk in the same cooking pot and cook them together for two to three minutes.


Keep stirring the mixture so that the banana and rice mix well.


In case you would like to dilute the porridge, add some water and cook for additional three to four minutes.

Once done, let the porridge cool down and feed it to your baby.



4. Oatmeal Banana Porridge














Grind oatmeal using a hand pounder or a blender with a blunt blade.


This is to ensure that there are no fine bits of oats when the porridge is ready and that the oatmeal cooks thoroughly.


You will need

2 cups ground oatmeal


1 cup chopped banana


3 cups of water


1 cup milk formula or expressed milk (optional)


How to

Add the ground oatmeal to the water and boil the mixture together.

In case you would like to dilute the porridge, add some water and cook for additional three to four minutes.

Make porridge using rice flour.


Replace vegetables with fruits.


You will need

2 cups rice flour


1 cup chopped carrots and peas


3 cups water


How to

Mix the rice flour and water in a cooking pot.


Cook the mixture for five to seven minutes, stirring continuously to prevent the formation of lumps.


Keep cooking till the rice flour completely mixes with the water and becomes soft.


Decrease the flame and let the mix cook slowly.


In a separate vessel boil some peas and carrots till they are soft.


Blend them together using the vegetable stock as thinner.
