Baby Led Weaning

Growing healthy babies with healthy appetites

Organic Mini Shreddies

Or something like that. I could go and look at the pack but it's too far away…
Basically they are smaller than normal Shredded Wheat, so they're easy for the babies to hold onto. Obviously they're wheat, but salt-wise there's just a trace measurement so that's fine. I just microwave them for five seconds in a splash of cows' milk (because We Are One, y'know), so  they absorb the milk and soften a little. Babybear eats about fifteen of these in a sitting, she loves them with a banana. Good news, as Babybear was becoming – dare I say it? – a little bored with porridge pancakes. More to the point, they are pretty clean breakfast so essential for those morning when a quick getaway is required.

Post Script
Littleducks from Mumsnet has pointed out that it was she who told me about Mini Shreddies, and has therefore demanded due credit. (Diva.)

    Ooh, I think I'll try these. Weeble is getting through about a loaf of bread a week, and I feel he should have some variety… apropos of nothing, he loved the Christmas Day venison, good lad!

    Clever boy… I think I was about 18 when I first tasted venison.
    I was pouring out the Shreddies today when I remembered that they are made by Nestle, a brand I have banned from the house for so long that I've practically forgotten why… and I formula feed… I'm not sure where that leaves my moral compass any more. Spinning around I think.

    M&S do very good mini shreddies – no added salt or sugar. V good Weetabix things also. I don't think M&S are morally dubious, other than those those bloody awful gastroporn ads.

    I liked her in Ballykissangel and that Northern detective drama thingy, but oh god, how I LOATHE those M&S adverts. They make me want to throw something at the telly.
    Also, her other half is the scrumptious Rupert Penry-Jones, lucky moo.
    Sorry, wild veering off topic there… ;-)

    Problem is though nestle still make cereals under supermarket names too. A right pita that is especially as the stores won't tell you who made their cereals! So I tend to stick to cereals by Kellogs or organic type companies. I think M&S are ok though.
    As we are avoiding wheat Jenson has been munching on millet flakes recently.

    According to The Good Shopping Guide , with regards to breakfast cereals, Doves Farm, Infinity, Jordans, Mornflake and Whole Earth get their Ethical Company tick. Kallo, Kashi, Kellogg's and Weetabix get a question mark and Quaker Oats and Shredded Wheat (nestle) get a cross.

    These are great – she ate loads (5 or 6 – loads to me anyway) Soaked in milk with chunks of banana. Fab. Yes, morally dubious damn but there ain't no M&S near me! Did check Morrisons own brand and Ocado…

    Sainsbury's do an own brand version called 'mini wheats' which I think are ethically sound! My 8 month old who is not at all keen on solids will eat 5 or 6 of these at a go which is loads for him. I just pour a bit of cold milk or cream over them to soften them.
