Zwieback Toasts

Yield 42 slices
Making your own teething toast for baby lets you choose whole-grain bread and avoid added preservatives. It also saves money—a loaf of bakery whole-grain bread averages around $3, while the equivalent amount of packed toasts costs anywhere from $7 to $9.


  • 1 (1-pound) loaf whole-wheat bread, cut into 1/2-inch slices

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 250°.

  2. Cut each slice of bread lengthwise into thirds, and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 250° for 1 hour or until bread is crisp. Let cool completely before serving. Store in an airtight container.
