  • Dried apricots or prunes
  • Banana

  • Granola bar (low-fat)
  • Handful of almonds
  • Juice or whole fruit

9 Common Pitfalls: Things to Avoid

  • Skipping breakfast (10 to 12 hours is too long for baby to wait and increases caloric intake for the remainder of the day)
  • Not exercising (30-minute walk in the morning can decrease appetite and increase stamina)
  • Too-large serving sizes (when in doubt, 1/2 cup will usually suffice)
  • Whole milk
  • Fast food
  • Fried food
  • Quick snacks such as chips and toaster pastries
  • Butter on bread and vegetables
  • Sauces and gravies
