Finding what to give your toddler as a finger food which is healthy and not filled with sugar and non-nutritious additives is what every mum wants. So instead of buying sugar-laden biscuits or chocolates to keep your toddler busy, make some toasts that will fit perfectly in their small fingers.
Eggy bread is another name for french toast, which is bread that is dipped or coated with beaten eggs and then shallow-fried. It is a good way to add protein to a carbohydrate meal of bread, and it will not just make a good finger food. It is also a very good one to get your child learn self-feeding without fear of choking.
Serve your toddler these bread bites for breakfast too and add it to their lunch box with some fruits and and their milk or hot drink. It will also make a good and filling dinner with a bowl of beans porridge. Find beans recipes here.
