Baby Breakfast Ideas

When I first starting feeding my girls purees for breakfast I was a bit conflicted about what to serve them.

Given that I am a recovering type A personality, I wanted to pack as many nutrients into a single serving that I could. I didn’t care what time of day it was, baby was going to get nutrients, nutrients and more nutrients. I didn’t care that kale, broccoli and green beans can be a little much for their palette at 8 in the morning.

So, I started with the healthiest, densest and most nutritious purees I could make.

And as you can image, both of my baby girls give me some questionable looks before refusing to open their little mouths for a single bite.

After a couple of mornings of this, I realized that since I didn’t even eat kale, broccoli and green beans for breakfast, why on earth would my child.

So, I switched things up and went with softer, milder and smoother tasting purees for breakfast. These purees were still packed with nutrients but were way easier for the little ones to eat in the early hours of the day.

Of course, I saved and served the kale, broccoli and green bean purees for later in the day:)

These are 18 of our favorite purees for baby’s breakfast. They are delicious, nutritious and so easy for baby to eat without complaint. And yes, there are even some with kale and spinach added in that are still sweet and perfect for breakfast (high-five!).
