Baby Led Weaning – Some Easy Introductory Snacks

Here are two snack items that we’ve been giving to Eleni recently, that I absolutely love. They actually taste so good that we munch on them together while I’m cooking dinner or cleaning the house!

Plums Little Yums Organic Teething Wafers – I usually break these in half length-ways (because more often than not after a few little nibbles they end up on the floor anyway)  and they come in two flavors: Pumpkin & Banana, and Spinach, Apple & Kale. These are made with organic rice flour, buckwheat and real fruits/veggies (see image below for full ingredients list and nutritional info) and they dissolve really quickly in babies’ mouths.

Gerber Lil’ Crunchies Organic White Cheddar Puffs – I just bought these a few days ago when I saw them at the grocery store. I actually love the flavor of these things, and they seem to dissolve very easily. Eleni also loves these, although the first time she tried to swallow one after chewing on it for a while, she gagged up a storm and scared the life out of me! Apparently though gagging is quite normal with BLW as the babies learn to chew and swallow and get used to something other than liquid going down their throats!
