A simple alternative to giving your baby regular teething biscuits is to try making these tasty baby bread sticks.
Always consult your child’s doctor before introducing any new foods. And never leave your baby alone with a teething biscuit, or any other finger food, due to the potential risk of choking.
For a selection of traditional recipes – and for more information about when to include teething biscuits in your baby’s diet, visit our main teething biscuit page. Or click here for some egg-free recipes.
Cut some 1/2 inch slices from any loaf of bread, then cut these slices into strips or sticks, about 1 1/2 in wide.
These can then be baked at 200 deg F (90 deg C), on an un-oiled baking sheet/cookie sheet, until dry and hard. (We find that they usually take around one hour – even if they still seem a little soft after an hour, they harden up considerably once they’re removed from the oven and cooled).
Hey presto – delicious baby teething crackers at a fraction of the cost of commercial varieties.
One of the best things about using this method to make your own teething biscuits is its versatility – if your baby has a wheat allergy, for example, you can simply use a wheat-free bread!
The following recipes will help you create your own delicious breads. The great thing is that the whole family can get to enjoy part of the loaf, whilst the rest can go towards making teething biscuits for baby!
