Baby Led Weaning Breakfast

I thought it would be helpful to list the breakfast foods Ralph has enjoyed from six months. I remember when we started weaning I found it difficult to find a list of foods and inspiration so hopefully this will help. This is by no means an extensive list and please make sure you research chocking hazards before embarking on your baby led weaning journey. Make sure you follow me on Instagram for daily meal ideas @thewouldbehousewife.


  • Cheerios – Make sure they do not contain honey.
  • Shredded Wheat
  • Porridge – You can make so many different varieties by adding fruit, puree or seeds.
