We all know that Weet-Bix is one of my favourite breakfasts out there. Its a wholegrain, full of fibre and other important vitamins, and fortified with iron. Its a pretty great allrounder for babies but we know variety is important for babes so finding exciting new ways to serve it is great to mix things up.
Age Recommendation - 9m + The sticky texture of these balls is a hard texture for younger babies. Without developed oral motor skills it could ball up in the mouth.
"I would never have thought to make weetbix into a ball. My little girl loves these" - Tanie (Baby Mumma)
