Homemade Teething Biscuits made with Gerber 3rd Foods® Lil’ Bits® Baby Food

 These homemade teething biscuits are easy to make and a healthy snack for your teething baby! I combine brown rice cereal and new Gerber 3rd Foods® Lil’ Bits® baby food along with a few simple ingredients, roll out, cut into shapes and bake. Easy peasy!
 Now that Stella is eating solids {and let me tell you she eats and eats..}, I am always looking for healthy, flavorful food for her to try. She isn't picky but she does seem to like apples, berries, sweet potatoes, bananas, and carrots the most. 
We have also been lovin' the new Gerber 3rd Foods® Lil’ Bits®. They are super convenient for a busy Momma like me, since they are healthy and flavor packed for my little one and come in a resealable container. Earlier this month I made Frozen Fruit Bites with the Sweet Potato Apple Carrots & Cinnamon flavor and Stella {and Ava too} gobbled them up. I really like that they have Lil' Bits of fruits and veggies mixed in the purees to encourage Stella to mash and chew her foods and help transition her to table food. They also have 10 different fruit and veggie combos to try so my hungry girl can try all sorts of tasty flavors and combinations and have a wide range taste palate just like her big sister! 
I decided to make these Teething Biscuits to have a healthy and natural snack option for my little one. I like knowing exactly what ingredients are in these and adding Gerber Organic Brown Rice Cereal and Gerber 3rd Foods® Lil’ Bits® not only adds texture but also gives them a light sweet flavor too that I know Stella will love!

 Ava loves to help me bake!
 She chose a star and heart cookie cutter for her sister's teething biscuits.
Use cooking cutters to cut out shapes or bars and place on a lined baking sheet.
 Bake for 10 minutes or until light brown.
 Allow to cool completely before giving to your little one!

These crackers or wafers as some call them are good for little ones to suck or
gnaw on when teething always be sure to supervise them.

Gerber 3rd Foods Lil Bits Recipes help babies learn to chew and ease the transition to table food.

  1. Pooches love the velvety integrity of nutty spread treats. Preparing hand crafted pooch scones has regularly been a threatening region with all their demanding and apparently strict systems however you will be enjoyably astonished with this specific formula.

  2. Teething symptoms can be very uncomfortable for baby and very distressing for parents. However, they are many things parents can do to alleviate their child's discomfort. Giving your child a teething biscuit can be a tasty, nutritional treat, as well as helping your child to learn to feed itself.

  3. This is a simple recipe that is not made often because of people's hectic lifestyles, but if you take the time to make these wonderful biscuits and enjoy them on a quiet Saturday or Sunday morning sipping coffee with your loved ones - It will be worth it - Plus they taste soooo goood! This is one of those breakfast recipes that will become a family tradition after the first serving.
