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, 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!

Note: these ideas are best for a baby 7+ months who has experience with single BLW foods such as bananas, avocados, blueberries, etc. When using the BLW method, it’s best not to add salt when cooking. If you have questions about what foods are okay for your baby, always ask your pediatrician!
