Creamy zucchini & coconut soup

Suitable from 4 months

We are often asked how to get a child to eat more vegetables, so if you have a child who doesn’t like them, you are not alone. There are many different opinions about this, such as whether you should hide them in other foods or not and how important vegetables are anyway. I think it

Semolina porridge with forest berry compote

Suitable from 6 months

For breakfast porridges, this is one of our favorites as it’s quick and easy to make. There’s also a sentimental thing to it as this was the kind of porridge I was sometimes served for dinner at my grandparents when I was little. Still to date I think it makes a nice breakfast porridge for

Avocado & banana whip

Sweet pepper, carrot & parsnip puree

Suitable from 4 months

Baby-led weaning is all the rage these days, but my daughter still loves purees, smoothies and mashed vegetables as well as pieces. That’s fine with me, as I can’t think of a better way to get in as many flavours and good fats as possible whilst she is still happy for me to feed her
