DIY Baby Cookies

Feeding solids to your baby can be a lot of fun, or a lot of stress! You want to feed your baby healthfully, safely, and without headaches. But it can be stressful to wade through the advice of your parents, your friends, and a million online articles, much less figure out the unique needs of your baby.

Too bad you don’t have a trained professional to help… right?

why it’s the smart choice

While rusks are just starch, sugar, and salt, these biscuits are full of nutrients that babies need, like iron.
