Baby Teething Cookies
Your Little One Will Love These Valentine-Shaped Biscuits All Year Long
If your baby is learning to eat table food, these are the perfect Valentine’s Day treat.
These teething biscuits are made with WIC-approved baby cereal and baby food. Use any baby food flavor your little one likes. Experts recommend that you have tried each of these food items separately before combining them, in the event there is a food allergy. So try a baby food flavor and baby cereal your little one likes.
The texture, flavor and even fun shapes are sure to be a hit. The consistency is a little chewy, perfect for a baby to learn how to use their mouth to chew. As always, make sure you watch your baby eat while they test out these lovable cookie treats. These are also perfect for mom because they are super simple to make.
BABY TEETHING BISCUITS
1 jar of baby food, any flavor
¾ cups of flour for cookies
½ cup of flour for dusting
3 tablespoons of water
Sprinkle of ground cinnamon
1 cup of baby cereal (we used oatmeal)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Mix wet and dry ingredients until fully incorporated. You may need to add a bit more water to make sure all the dry ingredients are moist. Form a ball. Prepare the surface and rolling pin by dusting with flour. Roll out your dough like you would cookies. Cut using cookie cutters or just use a knife to make bars. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 425 degrees. Let them cool entirely before you give them to your little one. Make sure they are cool to the touch. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.
