Food became priority, but not must and immediately. You surely know what I am talking about.
Nowadays, we nicely sit and prepare breakfast together. Only then, we start eating.
She has always been a very good eater. More firm food made the frequency to 7 – 8 meals a day.
The urgue of milk is still there, of course. I have to make a note how important milk is in life of the baby. Not only for the first year, but years to follow. If you want your baby to love his/her baby “coffee” as long as they can, do not offer convenient alternatives.
Especially milk products like flavoured milk desserts or drinks. It doesn’t mean that you can never offer any of these goodies. I do as well, of course. Just try to be wise and prioritize, especially with milk.
Nowadays, milk is a supplement to a firm food. Therefore, I call it kind of baby coffee.
I make a difference between the snacks and desserts. Desserts are occasional replacements of the planned regime. Not must, something above regular meals of the regime.
Baby Snacks represent the following: breakfast, dinners (as I prepare warm lunches) and brunches.
The recipes are all regulars in my kitchen and very yummy. Sometimes not only for babies, of course.
