Where are the recipes for babies/toddlers?

I have a couple of recipes you can make to help with teething:

Eggless Baby Cereal Cookies


1 cup flour
1 cup dry infant rice cereal with bananas (or other flavored or
unflavored infant cereal)
3 tablespoons cooking oil
ice water

Preheat oven 425F
Mix flour and cereal.
Gradually stir in oil. Mix a little ice water at a time (start with 1/4 cup) until dough begins to form a ball and pull away from the bowl.
Roll out to the thickness of a cracker on a floured surface and cut into desired shapes.
Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet 10-12 min. or until lightly brown. Cool completely.

Store in an airtight container. (you may want to try 1/2 plain and 1/2 flavored baby cereal as the taste when using full flavored baby cereal is very strong.)

  • Nutritious Teething Biscuits from Vicki Lansky's "Feed Me I'm Yours."

    1 beaten egg yolk
    3 Tbsp maple syrup or molasses (May be omitted)
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 1/2 Tbsp oil
    1/4 cup milk
    1 Tbsp uncooked oatmeal
    1 cup flour (white, wheat or combo)
    1 Tbsp soy flour
    1 Tbsp wheat germ
    1 Tbsp nonfat dry milk.

    Blend wet ingredients, add dry ingredients. Dough will be stiff. Roll dough thin and cut into strips or desired shapes.
    Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 15 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet.

    These can be made without the last 3 ingredients, but they add to the
    nutritional value. **Freezes Well**

  • The thinking now is babies over 6 months can eat anything, except drink mammal milk other than human. So you don't have to have special recipes.

    There was a large study that looked at all the studies that have been done about starting solids, allergies, and infant nutrition. Here are the current recommendations. Babies should be exclusively breastfed for the first six months. They can then start solids. It can be real food, not baby food and not cereal. Unless there are allergies in the family you don't have to be real careful about only starting one food at a time. Babies and toddlers should only have a max of 4-6 oz of juice a day in a cup, not a sippy cup or bottle. Breastmilk should be the main source of nutrition until 12 months. All babies should breastfeed at least 2 years. Children do not have to drink the milk of other mammals.

    If babies are formula fed they may start solids at 4 months.
