I am in a breakfast rutt..<br><br>
My 11 month old cannot have dairy, eggs or soy straight.. He /can/ have them in baked items as long as he doesn't OD on them.. So.. no omlets or quiches, but it is ok for him to have a pancake with 1 egg in the entire recipe..<br><br>
Any ideas for a good breakfast for him?<br><br>
He hates babyfood and won't touch anything off a spoon.. totally must feed himself.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

my baby loves quinoa with some stevia and cinnamon mixed into it. it is good as a source of protien...i believe iron...and it is whole grain and really easy to cook. you can do all sorts of stuff with it, sprinkle in some raisin bits, mash up some avocado and mix it in, etc.

We use cereals like Perky-Os, Amaranth-Os, and Gorilla Much. All of those are gluten free as well. Ilana like cut up fruit too, pears are her new favorite. She'll just eat a slice of that w/out cutting it small. You could do toast, oatmeal, creamed rice, etc. I make gluten free pancakes w/out eggs and the kids eat a lot of bananas and applesauce. What else? They're pretty boring so they eat the same thing a lot. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Oatmeal, quinoa with sauteed vegetables and breakfast sausage, quinoa with honey (serve like oatmeal), corn meal mush (polenta), cracked wheat cereal. . . that's all I can think of right now.

I mostly don't do breakfast foods for breakfast. Once I got over that mental hump, breakfast for my dd became much easier. She doesn't know that breakfast foods are any different and is happy to chomp down some pinto beans for breakfast!<br><br>
If you stay with the traditional breakfast foods, sausage is a good choice. Wellshire farms makes a good chicken and apple sausage that meets your criteria. We also do quinoa cereal with mashed banana. Buckwheat pancakes are a big hit with my dd - I found an eggless recipe and make those in big batches and freeze them for quick reheats later.

We also do not eat breakfeast foods. We usually eat split peas with ghee (clarified butter from Purity farms is casein free), or red lentils with ghee. It is so nice to have something warm and creamy for breakfeast! We usually have a little bit of meat too and a bit of fruit.

My understanding is that most people that are sensitive to dairy are sensitive to the casein, hence ghee is fine if it is truly casein free. However, some people are sensitive to other things in dairy- not just the casein, and in that case ghee is not a good choice. If you are doing a dairy elimination I would not recommend using ghee as this would not be an accurate test. It could be one of the first things you challenge, though, to determine if casein is a culprit vs. all dairy.

For baking, sure, but for serving like oatmeal, no. Get the actual grain. I'm not a huge quinoa fan, so if you're not GF, I say stick to whole wheat flour!

We are dairy, soy, egg free for SJ -- she can't try eggs 'til she's two since we have a family history of allergies (older sister had multiple and is still allergic to eggs; SJ is allergic to dairy and we haven't tried soy in her or my diet as a result).<br><br>
For breakfast we eat - dry breakfast cereals that are safe; fresh or canned fruits; oatmeal; cooked barley; allbran or wheatabix mixed with hot canned fruit juice to make a 'porridge' (this is also good with leftover broth from chicken or beef, that's actually SJ's favorite way to eat it). Safe breakfast sausages (make our own with ground pork, or purchase; I think Morningstar has some and we also have some 'local' companies which make safe breakfast sausages).<br><br>
I have an egg/dairy free muffin recipe I make with coconut milk and banana that a friend on another board shared with me (makes 12 muffins). DH loves them; we usually make blueberry, but sometimes make chocolate chip or other fruits. I have not given these to SJ though as she hasn't tried coconut yet (we do food intros pretty slowly).<br><br>
I agree with the pps who mention that breakfast doesn't have to be "breakfast" foods. Is it a good balance of whole grains, (fresh) fruits/veggies, and some fat/protein source? Then it's a good meal, any time of the day. In some parts of Asia, breakfast is soup, KWIM? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
(BTW <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"> to Peachy! I recall you from BC and wondered how you were doing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I knew you posted here and am glad to 'see' you finally!)
