Delicious Banana French Toast for baby – 8 months+

Banana french toast is a nutritious, filling, and delicious way to incoporate eggs into your baby’s diet. It’s also super quick to make, and versatile because you can add any extra toppings you have at hand to make a complete meal: yoghurt, berries, stewed apples, or peanut butter.

If you haven’t introduced eggs to your baby yet, here is what you need to know:

  • According to ASCIA (Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy), all babies should be given common allergy-causing foods by 12 months of age, including egg. This includes babies who have severe eczema, another food allergy, or a family member with food allergy, even though they have a higher chance of developing a food allergy.
  • It is recommended that you offer your baby eggs regularly (twice a week) starting between 6 (not before 4 months) and 12 months of age. Always speak to your doctor or maternal and child health nurse before introducing solids.
  • Here are the steps to getting started, along with some serving suggestions, and what to do if your baby has an allergic reaction: When to introduce eggs to your baby.
  • Eggs contain high quality proteins, fat, and other nutrients such as iron, zinc, copper, selenium, calcium, fatty acids, vitamins D, B12, E, choline, and folate.

If your baby is over 6 months and you haven’t offered finger foods yet, please read How to safely serve finger foods to babies. Finger foods introduce your baby to self-feeding while they develop the necessary skills to bite, chew, and swallow (all necessary skills for speech development as well).
