Help! My Baby Refused His Breakfast!
Sometimes we forget that our children are in fact just like us – they have days when they are hungrier or do not always feel like eating the exact same thing for breakfast as the previous 365 mornings. This is especially true for when they are sick. As my child is only 17 months unfortunately his only form of communication is to shake his head, close his month (and possibly cry – least I did not have that this morning). He cannot even say “no” yet and he certainly cannot say “mum I have a cold, my throat is sore and I really do not feel like eggs but some nice cold yoghurt would be great thank you”.
As much as we do not want to become mothers that operate café style kitchens – with multiple options on the menu – sometimes trust your instinct - from a nutritional view point, just offer different types of healthy options (as I did), they will eat if in fact they are hungry. Keeping meal times as fun as possible and not getting frustrated when this does happen is hard – I really do understand - but I hope it helps you to know it happens to me too!
I have quite a few healthy breakfast recipes here on the blog here are just a few:
