Baby Led Weaning: Dairy Free Raspberry Porridge Fingers Recipe

Weaning is going well but I’m finding it really tricky finding enough variety for Theo because of his food allergies and intolerances. I’m doing a combined approach to weaning with a mix of traditional purees and baby led weaning finger foods. Most finger food recipes include milk, egg or wheat though so are off the menu in our house. I decided to adapt the traditional porridge fingers recipe to be dairy free and it worked, they’ve been a big hit with Theo!

They’re really easy to make and can be kept in the fridge for a few days after you’ve made them. He has such fun with them and is getting better and better at feeding himself. (He still makes a bloody mess though!)

You can watch my video recipe for dairy free porridge fingers below or scroll down for the written instructions.

I hope you enjoy the recipe! If you have any finger food ideas for me for a dairy free baby then please leave me a comment below!
