I’m often asked for breakfast ideas that are nutritious, tasty and promote sleep. Sleep needs to be looked at from a holistic perspective and part of that assessment is diet. The ideal ratio of nutrients at each meal is 1/3 carbohydrates, 1/3 protein and 1/3 fruit or veggies. Protein helps that brain grow and makes such a difference to sleep. Breakfast is a very important start to your baby’s day. They’ve been sleeping all night and now they need energy and calories fast! it may be worth starting your day with breakfast and giving milk just before that morning nap.
