Can I feed my 10 month old whole grain toast instead of cereal for breakfast? She hates cereal!

My 10 month old will not eat any cereal..... I have tried almost everything on the market, have tried adding sugar, she just refuses... In general she eats everything else, only has 2 teeth but munches most grown up food! So is there anything wrong with feeding her whole grain toast with marmite or fish paste instead of trying to get her to eat cereal every morning?

My kids have always eaten wholegrain bread/toast, so that's what I started them on. Much better for them than that white cardboard.

My daughter i s the same age. She has six teeth though. She has never liked cereal. I give her toast in the morning but is wasnt till she had top and bottom teeth. Bread is very easy to choke on. If you do want to try it, I dont think it will hurt her if she is able to eat it. I would suggest to make it crispy though that way it will just crumble like crackers. And if toast doesnt work what about oatmeal or some fruit.

My son did and he only had two teeth , toast is a great breakfast food with a glass of milk and some fruit , thats about as healthy as you can get it !
