Make your own baby rusks

Teething babies want to chew all the things. Here’s a cheap and easy way to make baby rusks at home in just two minutes.

Mum’s Grapevine Baby Group member Eliza has been making her teething tots these baby rusks for a couple of years, and she says they just love them.

“I was trying to find dairy-free rusks for my little one, my first child a couple of years ago because he’s lactose intolerant, and the lactose-free ones are so expensive. So I was looking at alternatives and I found this great recipe which just uses bread.”
