Cauliflower crust pizza

Suitable from 8 months

I was very happy when my neighbour gave me a piece of his cauliflower pizza to try. I knew that it was something my children would love and it is ideal for those following a gluten-free or grain-free diet – or just a healthier diet. We make this at least once a fortnight and the

Seed crackers

Suitable from 10 months

This delicious seed cracker is very popular at home. We spread on our favourite nut or seed butter and eat these for breakfast or snacks, or alongside lunch or dinner. I only started making these recently – we don’t eat bread so it was quite a treat for my children to have something to spread

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

Roasted vegetable salad

Suitable from 8 months

We love birthdays. We are always so busy all year, so birthdays are our excuse (like we needed one) to bring all our friends together over great food. Our children’s birthdays are no exception: I particularly love the challenge of coming up with healthy treats the kids will love as much as the adults. For

Roasted carrot & almond hummus

Suitable from 8 months

After several recent dinnertime meltdowns, I realized that the solution lies either in serving dinner earlier or in giving my kids a small appetizer to keep them going until dinner is ready. Since we don’t always get home in time to eat earlier than 6.30pm but I don’t want them to eat so much they

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. Leave out the chicken and it also makes a great dessert for toddlers. The first time I made it, little

Rainbow salad

Suitable from 8 months

This salad is a quick, easy, delicious addition to a meal or a meal in itself. It is popular with all the family and an ideal way to get vegetables and salad into small children. My son piles this onto his plate until nothing else fits: a bowl we made to last two meals lasted

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

Raw chocolate brownies

Suitable from 10 months

Our recipe for these dark, chewy, crunchy, gluten-free, grain-free, refined sugar-free no-cook brownies consists of just a handful of ingredients, all of them raw and unprocessed. Our raw cheesecake base morphed into a brownie one day when I was sampling the base and came up with the idea of adding some thick, chunky walnut pieces,

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
