Delicious turmeric banana lassi

Suitable from 8 months

The days are getting shorter and darker as winter approaches and we are spending much more time indoors than we did during the summer. It’s the season of cosy ‘fika’ as they say in Sweden, which roughly means ‘to drink coffee with squash’, usually accompanied by something sweet. For us it just means an excuse

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

Suitable from 4 months

This is definitely one of those recipes that tastes much better than it sounds, especially with chicken, but it’s a great ‘quick fix’ baby dinner when you need to put something together in a hurry.

Mint choc chip smoothie

Pancake snails

I’m not sure if many people actually use a recipe to make pancakes, as the simplest version really only contain three ingredients (four if you add salt). Still I think it is fun to post some inspiration to how to give very basic food a twist and make it into a fun snack. We’ve included

Raw shortbread

Suitable from 12 months

My son is intolerant to starch, so the desserts we make are never conventional but they still need to pass the yumminess test for a food-loving two-year-old. When Theo likes something a lot we hear about it pretty quickly. The first bite is followed by a moment’s silence and then just one word – ‘more’.
