You guessed it. Eggs are on our baby-led weaning breakfast menu (again). It’s funny how the mind works. Instead of thinking to myself: I’m making breakfast for me, and Harper is just having some, I totally think of it the other way around – like, can I have a bite of your toast, pleaaaase? Baby can put down some food.
The greatest thing about eggs is that they are essentially a blank canvas for flavors and are a wonderful vehicle for veggies. Some of our favorite combos are spinach & arugula with grape tomatoes, broccoli and cheddar, and the Greek-inspired scramble below.
Since she does like to have eggs every morning, I try to change it up. I personally love scrambled eggs or a nice runny yolk, but frittatas are just so easy for little baby-led weaning hands. I always aim for a different veggie and a different type of cheese every day. One morning we also tried Blueberry Banana Baked Oatmeal, which I baked the night before and just reheated for breakfast. While I’m sure Harper would have loved to play in a mushy pile of oatmeal (note to self: sensory play idea) baked oats are much easier to hold for a baby-led weaning breakfast – and delicious!
