It’s 10 AM you’re on your 3rd cup of coffee of the day already, your normally happy little baby hasn’t eaten any breakfast.
Sore gums can put your baby off food just as you’re settling into a weaning routine. You may feel your baby is just not eating and there is something wrong with their eating habits as they refuse solid food. But this is a symptom described by many parents when babies start teething.
Today I’m sharing a few tips and recipes that I made for my little one when I start weaning and he started teething.
Fresh fruit popsicle for baby – These fresh fruit popsicles are such a colourful and delicious way to stay cool this summer! These all-natural treats are seriously gorgeous and they’re so easy to make! They make a great summer treat, afternoon snack, or even a breakfast for the road. You can add pretty much any fruit to these ice pops! So take a look inside your fridge to see what you have!
Here’s A List Of Fruits That You Can Try:
Some fruits can be sweeter than others, so pair as per your taste.
Coconut Water – is a great option because of its superpowers but you can also replace it with any natural juice like grape/apple or plain old lemonade. Orange is a good choice too but may hide the fruits in the pop.
My little one loves this recipe – Add a bit of each of these fruits in a popsicle mould. Mix it with so coconut water and freeze overnight. Serve when your baby is cranky and bothered!
For adults – you can also use iced tea, ginger ale or any soda.
Will Baby Get Cold After Eating Popsicles?
If your baby has a cold already – please refrain from offering ice pops till he gets better, else it is OK. It is believed that frozen food does not cause cold.
This nuts paratha recipe is a keeper. Almond paratha with sautéed paneer” – rich in iron, good fats + protein. When babies don’t eat properly when they’re teething, you can use this recipe to keep their energy levels up.
- Take a handful of almond/cashews and grind them, powder like.
- Roll a dough and stuff this powder and pat paratha on tava using ghee.
- This is one of the best ways to add nuts to your baby’s diet as whole nuts are choking hazards.
Wheat, almonds and paneer – gluten, nuts and dairy – all are potential allergens. Introduce one at a time and after they’ve been consumed enough by the baby without any side effects, you can offer them together.
Please note – All these can be introduced from 6 months onwards.
