I seem to write a lot about recipes that you can prepare quickly and easily if you are in a rush. Life can be hectic with small children and I’m not always organized, so I find it very useful to have a repertoire of quick and healthy dishes to choose from when one or more

Breakfast really is my favorite meal of the day. Even on busy weekdays, we try to sit down together for half an hour and enjoy breakfast as a family, talk about what we have planned for the day and just enjoy each others company. After these thirty minutes I’m ready for any battle to come!

Flourless zucchini muffins

Suitable from 8 months

Most parents love the idea of their children munching away happily on vegetables and I am no exception. My son loves vegetables, but for those who don’t I am not adverse to being a bit sneaky by hiding vegetables in yummy dishes and hoping they will like them. That way your children will become accustomed

Low sugar granola

Suitable from 10 months

Granola is one of my favourite comfort foods. Sometimes there is nothing like the crunch of a good granola on top of yogurt or topped with a little milk. I can’t eat oats and neither can my son, plus I’m not a fan of grains generally so we needed to satisfy our cravings with something

Rosemary & black pepper crackers

Suitable from 10 months

These crackers are great as a convenient, nutritious snack, either at home or on the go. They are grain-free, gluten-free and high in (nut) protein. They are baked, which some would say is not optimal for health, but they are still far better for you than any commercial cracker out there. These crackers are made

Chocolate & walnut muesli

Suitable from 12 months

In case you haven’t noticed, I love experimenting. When I’m in a creative food mood, I can’t think of anything better than opening my drawers and cupboards and concocting something new from the ingredients inside. This also happens when I’ve run out of the ingredients I usually use for a particular recipe. I’ve been on

Spelt is an ancient grain which is native to southern Europe, where it has been used for millenniums.

These wonderfully moist and tasty muffins are a favourite with my son and his buddies. They make great picnic food (adult picnics included!), but can also be enjoyed on the side of any soup or simply as an in–between snack.

Avocado & strawberry smoothie

Suitable from 8 months

I made up this avocado smoothie one day when my son was going through a fussy patch because of his teeth and didn’t want to eat anything except cold dairy and fruit. It is perfectly normal but nevertheless worrying when a baby with a previously voracious appetite suddenly refuses to eat anything but yogurt and

Strawberry crumble smoothie

Suitable from 6 months

I love plain yogurt, but there are times when only a fruity yogurt will do. Since the shop-bought ones all contain sugar or artificial sweetener (yes, all of them!) I always make my own. This sweet, fruity smoothie is almost a meal in itself. It makes the perfect healthy mid-afternoon snack for all the family.

Homemade fruity nut butter
