    Baby rusk recipe please

    Shop Now
    I'm looking for a teething rusk/hard food to give my 6 months old.

    Grain, dairy, nut and egg free.

    Has anyone had any success with something like this?

    I think Dr. Bork Bork was joking(?!) Low-salt beef jerky is a good choice - if I were to have another child, that's what I would give as a "teething" food. You can also get those mesh feeding whatsits and stuff a slice of frozen apple or pear in - those feel nice on the gums.

    why would I be joking? You could probably get a good ginger snap/firm quality biscuit using arrowroot.

    Sorry, I always associated arrowroot biscuits with lots of sugar... I've only used it as a thickener and I've only gone as far as primal pie crust with the baking experiments. Would it be possible to cookiefy it without using sugar?

    probably not, but it wouldn't hurt to have a tiny bit in there. Maybe use maple syrup or molasses, or even a fruit paste like dates. Again, minute quantities. Just ideas. The post-surgery drugs I'm on right now could be totally throwing me off my rocker :P

    I thought using arrowroot flour to make some form of cookies was a good idea. Perhaps I could use home made apple sauce as a binder/sweetener? Would that work?

    Hmmm holy, I'm after something Grain, dairy, soy, nut and egg free. Salicylates are also a problem for us.

    I also don't believe in pureeing baby food. We do baby lead solids, my bub feeds herself.
