Ds loves sandwiches/toast etc, and some days I feel a bit over reliant on it! He often gets through 2/3 slices a day. <must get off backside and start using bread maker>

At that age they would have usually one slice per day, and then not every day. Tended to offer Ready Brek for breakfast and sandwiches not every day. Personally I would be concerned about he bread's high salt content and the constipating quality of the bread smile.

Yes I do worry about the salt mainly! He's never had a problem in the poo department!!

DS (14 mo) is also a bread fiend. I've started making batches of scones (from the BLW cookbook) which he loves spread with cream cheese, hummus or avocado. They're really easy and he loves them even more than bread! I add cheese and butternut squash for extra veg smile

I also make scones, pancakes and scotch pancakes as alternatives. For breakfast I give ds porridge pancakes instead of bread and at lunch I make things like omelette or potato cakes with tuna to mix things up a bit. Pasta salad is also quick, easy and a good way to get carbs into your baby at lunch smile

Ah scones and scotch pancakes! Thats a good idea.

Unfortunately ds is an omelette and pasta refuser sad

My ds won't eat bread - unless we are feeding ducks. When presented with a sandwich he picks out the filling, scrapes jam off toast. But at the ducks plain bread does just fine. Children are odd.

Finger foods patties are another favourite in our house: mix 3 tbsps flour, 3 tbsp milk and 1 egg then add any flavours you like such as cheese and tomatoes, mashed bananas, butternut squash etc then fry on both sides until golden. So quick and versatile!

Given the chance, my ds (now 20m) would live off toast but he usually has a slice at breakfast and a slice to make a sandwich at lunch time. Today we were home late so he had scrambled egg on toast for tea too blush and the swine picked out all the veg I'd put in the scrambled egg. GRRR. If he's at the cm's or creche I think he spends the best part of the morning eating toast.

We sometimes have pancakes, scones, crumpets, fruit bread or muffins to break up the monotomy but its all quite bread based!
