Cereal pancakes can be the perfect breakfast for a weaning baby. They are rich in minerals and fiber which can keep your little one full for a long period of time, and added fruits serve as a great source of vitamins.
If you want to upgrade from the regular porridge and help your baby get used to different textures, finger foods, such as pancakes, prove to be a great option. Feeding themselves also improves hand-eye coordination.
