I mentioned last week that the Holle Organic Baby Spelt Rusks are now available in their new packaging and gave you a few simple recipe ideas for weaning babies that use these sugar free rusks. I should also have mentioned that they really are not just for weaning and teething babies.
Whenever my children are unwell, which thankfully is not often, I feed them what my mother gave me whenever I was recovering from illness – baby rusks soaked in tea. Simply take a couple of rusks, break them into a few pieces on a plate and pour over enough Holle organic baby tea to make them soggy. Mash with a fork and allow to cool. This lovely mild cereal is enough to tempt any child recovering from sickness.
Holle Baby Rusks – Not Just For Babies
I mentioned last week that on the continent rusks resemble toast more than biscuits. Actually such ‘toasty’ rusks aren’t just made for babies and are a popular snack for adults with butter and jams or cheeses or even more exciting toppings – great for buffets. As an alternative to the Holle Baby Rusks the ErdmanHAUSER rusks are made with butter and are specifically made to eat as party snacks – they taste absolutely delicious and are Demeter/biodynamically certified. For children and adults who have an intolerance to gluten I would recommend the Werz Four Grain Rusks which are gluten free.
Baby Rusks – Great for Morning Sickness
A number of mums have told me that they have found baby rusks perfect when they were pregnant and had morning sickness – a light, dry nibble was just what was needed to settle their tummy.
So, baby rusks are great for adults and babies alike – let me know how you like to eat yours.
