Fresh Breakfasts Recipes for 7-9 Months Babies

Vanilla Porridge

Vanilla is another flavour that babies seem to love and it is a really easy way to make porridge a little more interesting. Ella, my eldest, who is 3, still loves eating sugar-free vanilla porridge.

  4. If wished, serve with finely chopped or puréed mango, depending on your baby's confidence with chewing

Strawberry, Apple And Mint Purée

Mint goes really well with strawberries, but try adding it to other fruit purees, too, especially melon. This is a great purée to give a baby who may be constipated, because strawberries are rich in both soluble and insoluble fibre, which help to relieve the condition.

  • 1 Iron
  • 1/2 Zinc
  • 4 Vitamin C
  • makes: 3 baby portions or 1 baby portion and 1 adult portion as a smoothie base or cereal topping

Ingredients:

  • storage: best eaten immediately
  • handful of strawberries
  • 1/2 small eating apple, eg Cox's orange pippin
  • 1 mint leaf

Methods:

  1. Hull the strawberries.
  2. Peel and core the apple, then roughly chop. Put it into a small saucepan with 2 tbsp water and heat gently until the apple is soft and pulpy.
  3. Cool, then add the strawberries and the mint. Whiz with a hand-held blender (or in a food processor or blender) until smooth.

Plum Yogurt With Muesli

Small amounts of spices can be added to lots of different purees, not only to make them more interesting to your baby but also to educate her palate. It is at this early stage that a lifetime's eating habits can be influenced, so be bold! You could also include a little fresh grated ginger instead of ground ginger. Avoid muesli that contains nuts if there is any family history of allergies.

  • 1 Protein
  • 1/2 Zinc
  • suitable for babies over 1 year old
  • makes: 2 baby portions
  • storage: best eaten immediately or up to 24 hours in the refrigerator

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe plum, eg Victoria or greengage
  • a tiny pinch ground ginger
  • 2 tbsp natural full-fat yogurt
  • 1 tbsp ground baby muesli breast milk or formula milk, to serve

Methods:

  1. Remove the plum's stone and roughly chop.
  2. Put the plum in a saucepan with the ginger and 2 tbsp water and heat gently until the plum is soft. Leave to cool.
  3. Mash the plum into a puree, then add the yogurt, muesli and enough breast milk or formula milk to create the desired consistency. Mix together well.

Prune And Banana Porridge

A great purée for any older baby who is prone to constipation, because prunes are a natural laxative. But dried fruits can be difficult to digest, so I'd advise keeping this one for babies in their 9th month plus. As with all fruit for babies, make sure the bananas are ripe — they should have black spots. Unripe bananas can be indigestible for babies, as well as causing wind.

  • 31/2 Protein
  • 1/2 Iron
  • 1 Zinc
  • 1 Calsium
  • 1/2 Vitamin C
  • Vitamin B12
  • suitable for babies over 1 year old
  • makes: 3 baby portions or 1 baby portion and 1 adult portion
  • storage: best eaten immediately or up to 24 hours in the refrigerator

Ingredients:

  • 125ml boiling water
  • 2 prunes, stoned and finely chopped (only for 9-month old babies plus)
  • 200ml breast milk or formula milk
  • 60g oats
  • 1/2 ripe medium banana, roughly chopped

Methods:

  1. Pour the boiling water over the prunes and then leave them to soak for half an hour.
  2. Put the soaked prunes in a pan with all the other ingredients except the banana, and then heat gently for 5 minutes, stirring often, until the mixture has thickened.
  3. Add the banana and purée with a hand-blender (or in a food processor or blender), adding a little more milk or cooled, boiled water, to thin, if necessary.

Mango, Kiwi And Banana Purée

This is a really zingy purée, but try adding a little bit of lime juice to help bring out the flavours of the fruit and give the puree an extra kick. Surprisingly, lots of older babies and toddlers really enjoy the sour taste of citrus fruits. My 3-year-old daughter, Ella, loves to suck on slices of lemon.

  • 1/2 Protein
  • 5 Vitamin C
  • makes: 3 baby portions or 1 baby portion and 1 adult portion as a smoothie base

  1. Remove the peel from the mango and then roughly chop the flesh into small pieces.
  2. Peel and roughly chop the kiwi fruit and banana.
  3. Put the fruit into a bowl and whiz with a hand-held blender (or in a food processor or blender) until smooth.

Apple And Banana Purée

This simple purée is always a favourite with babies, who love the taste of banana and the sweetness of apple.

  • 1/2 Protein
