Some healthy homemade snacks for babies
You have many options when you are cooking snacks for your little one. We are going to tell you some of them.
Don’t forget to include fruits in your baby’s snacks. This must be your first option because your baby needs to ingest at least two fruit portions a day. You can scrap an apple, or give him a banana, peach, pear, mango, melon, watermelon, and grapes.
Don’t forget to take off the grapes of the fruits. You can serve them kneaded, boiled, or roasted. You can also make a pap with them. Avoid sugar. Instead of it use black plum, apricots or raisins.
And don’t forget, never, but never use honey in your homemade snacks for babies!
It’s true, you can offer your little baby vegetables in the middle of the morning and afternoon. Therefore, babies don’t care if it’s morning, night, afternoon, and so on. This way you can offer them raw carrot (or if you like you can serve it steamed), fresh baked and cold peas, boiled corn, cucumber stick, Cherry Tomato, in a way that your baby can grab them with his fingers.
There are many recipes for cakes without gluten and especially cow milk. The best one is the carrot cake. But avoid giving it to your baby many times as homemade snacks for babies. At the most 1 day a week.
You can serve up a little pot of pasta during the snack of your baby. Temper with a little olive oil, salt, and parsley. You can add tomato pieces, or carrot as well. Ideally, serve it cold.
Pay attention to dried fruits because they have enormous potential allergenicity. Offer small amounts at a time. Try to give him cashew nuts in the form of flour on top of other fresh fruit. It’s an excellent option for homemade snacks for babies.
Babies love to suck french bread. Serve to your baby whole grain bread. You can cut it into strips. It’s an excellent snack and this way you are accustoming your baby with whole grain foods.
