Grilled zucchini pizza bites

Suitable from 8 months

This week we ended up with a lot of zucchini. That’s courgette for our UK readers. A friend gave me some from her garden, the neighbour left some when he went on holiday and I had already bought a large batch to make soup. My children love zucchini soup but they don’t like zucchini any

Green eggs

Suitable from 6 months

We really enjoy having fun in our kitchen, making our bean salad beetroot-purple and our eggs spinach-green. Thankfully Sam-I-Am was right about green eggs, they really do taste good. This recipe is at its best when eaten after a third reading of Dr Seuss’ ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ when the little ones are begging to

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

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. There is a lot of conflicting advice and research, but the great news is that studies have shown that beetroot and other nitrate-rich vegetables are beneficial for health and that babies

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

Gluten-free banana pancakes

Suitable from 4 months

Ah pancakes. In the UK pancakes are usually eaten or breakfast or dessert or – as in my family – once a year on shrove Tuesday. In Sweden, sweet pancakes are often served as lunch, especially in schools and on children’s lunch menus in restaurants, cafes and play centres. We are a gluten-free family, so

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

Oven-baked salmon with root vegetables

Suitable from 8 months

I didn’t grow up eating a lot of fish so for a long time I used to shy away from making it for my family. That was until my mother-in-law showed me how easy it actually is to prepare fish, especially if baked in the oven. I’ve since came to love lots of different fish

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

Homemade pumpkin puree

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!

This yummie cocoa drink is the perfect winter warmer. It couldn’t be simpler, the whole family can enjoy it and it’s a super health drink to boot.

Goat cheese dip

Suitable from 12 months

My husband made this goat cheese dip sauce the other night for dinner and it was so good I had to post it right away. We had it as a side together with beetroot burgers and bulgur, and the combination was truly a winner. The dip will work just as well served with carrot, cucumber,

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
