Beetroot salad

Suitable from 8 months

We receive a lot of emails asking if small children can eat beetroot. The concern is nitrates, which are naturally present in many vegetables.

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

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

Unsure what to do with your Halloween pumpkins after the big night is over? If they’re still fresh and clean, bring them inside and turn them into pumpkin puree with little effort!

Roasted vegetable salad

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

If you ask my 3-year old, there’s something about lining up fruit on a stick that just makes fruit time even cooler. We often serve fruit skewers like these at kids parties or other occasions – they are quick to make, look pretty and are loved by kids and adults alike! Recipe tips Use any

Healthy nibble mix

When I was younger, I used to love sugary treats to nibble on while working or watching a movie. Now that we have kids I hardly buy sweets anymore as we’ve gotten used to eating healthier treats if we crave something sweet. I love this mix as it’s the perfect combination of sweet and tart.

Mint choc chip smoothie

I have always been health-conscious, but when I was pregnant with our first baby I became even more so. When that little baby turned 5 months and started eating, my interest in healthy food continued and I became even more of a foodie on his behalf. I wanted to make sure that he got healthy

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’.

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
