French toast with blueberries & Greek yoghurt

French toast with blueberries& Greek yoghurt@ healthyfoodiebaby

I started having this French toast recipe when I was pregnant and I still love it now. It’s a real treat for breakfast on a lazy Sunday. I adapted the recipe from the yummy mummy pregnancy cookbook and have tweaked it again to make it more suitable to babies.

Eggy bread is a great finger food for babies and a good source of iron and B vitamins. Adding the blueberries makes it so tasty and healthy for grown ups as well as babies. Blueberries are a superfood, they are full of antioxidants.

As egg whites are a common food allergy I have divided both baby and adult recipes but once your baby is ok with egg whites I would make the egg mixture all together to speed things up.

Enjoy!
