step 4

Your little one should be starting to eat more of what you offer, more frequently now, and a baby-friendly brekkie is the perfect way to introduce them to a mealtime routine.

Because your little one is raring to go in the morning, breakfast is the perfect time to try something new. Although they shouldn’t be eating family breakfast cereals because of the added sugar and salt, baby cereals provide the perfect texture with no added nasties.



  • Continue with their morning milk feed, so they’re not too hungry to enjoy breakfast*
  • Use 2 spoons – one for you and one for them to practise with
  • Try using their usual formula milk in cereals made with milk – they’ll love the reassuring taste*
  • Give water in a beaker so they get used to having a drink with their meal

*From 6 months, your baby needs around 500-600ml of milk a day


  • Worry if they only eat small amounts at first
  • Give your baby peanut butter or foods containing gluten before they are 6 months old
  • Give your little one soft-boiled eggs or runny yolks before they are 12 months old
