Food: Pudding/Desert Variety

Following on from the Feeding our Children and Breakfast Variety Posts, below is a list of what we have for puddings in our house. I’m finding that not only are we in a rut with breakfast but also with puddings. I try to vary the fruit my little one has, she loves Papaya and Pineapple, but we still seem to swing between yoghurt and fruit because everything else always seems so unhealthy. I’m also still trying to limit the amount of sugar in my little one’s diet as she’s enough of a live wire without it :-D.

  • Yoghurt
  • Fruit – Fresh
  • Fruit – tinned
  • Fruit – frozen
  • Carrot Cake
  • Fromage Frais
  • Sorbet
  • Crumble
  • Banana’s and custard
  • Banana Bread – I make this the same time as the rice pudding as it saves on using the oven twice
  • Rice Pudding – I found some which you just bung in the oven for a couple of hours, great if you plan to cook something else at the same time. Or you can buy the pre-prepared pots.
  • Semolina
  • Lollys – I bought the Annabel Karmel Mini ice lolly set when my little one started weaning and we still use them now. I fill them with milk and squished up fruit. Very quick and easy
  • Smoothies
  • Muffins
  • Eton Mess
  • Fruit Salad
  • Pancakes
  • Apple Pie
  • Ice cream – I love Mackie’s ice cream
  • Cheese and crackers

I read the food and drink guidelines for 1 to 5 year olds Booklet last year but I think I need to review it because I know there are a lot of great suggestions in it.

What do you give your little one’s for pudding?
