Rusks are a great way of starting a baby off with weaning ad we have been using them with our baby for the last two months.
These rusks are available in pack sizes of 9 rusks retailing for £1.29p or a pack of 18 rusks retailing at around £1.99p, I went for the larger pack of rusks as it offers better value for money and there was no worry for me about them being wasted if baby didn't take to them as both my other children and my husband love these so it has been a battle to keep them away from them.
These are designed for stage 1 weaning which you start at between 4 to 6 months old, they are really good for this stage as it is a great way to get your baby used to having a little extra in there tummy other than just milk, I started with all 3 of my children by mixing a quarter of a rusk in a bowl with there formula milk to turn the rusk into a paste which it does very easily and there are no hard bits left behind and this way you can vary the texture of the mix by adding more milk if needed, I gradually increased this to a whole rusk and slowly got the consistency thicker before moving on to other baby foods.
M baby took really well to eating these and soon got to grips with moving food from the from to the back of her mouth with her tongue, I no longer use these as a mixed paste for her but as a snack she can hold her self as this is a great food to start finger food with as it doesn't require any chewing as it dissolves in the babies mouth when in contact with saliva and is much better for your baby than a plain biscuit which is why I also allow my other two children to still eat these even though they are 5 and 7 years old.
Using this as a finger food with a baby helps with hand eye co ordination and I have also found it is helping jess with her teething as it is giving her something she enjoys to chew on,
These rusks contain iron and calcium, 11 vitamins and minerals and have no added colours or preservatives but they do contain sugar.
Summary: a nice snack for a toddler
