Grilled zucchini pizza bites

Cauliflower crust pizza

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

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

Smashed egg sandwich spread

Suitable from 6 months

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

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.

Children’s spicy latte

Suitable from 12 months

A warming spice drink is a wonderful way to beat the winter chill. I spend half the winter with a warm drink or soup in my hands and my little ones don’t miss out because we mix them their own little winter lattes, sans caffeine of course. They love to help mix it and sit

Lamb & beetroot burgers

Whenever we are stuck for ideas for dinner and the day is getting late, we make burgers. Not just any old burgers, but a burger recipe my husband concocted a few years ago, one we haven’t yet managed to beat. We made them again tonight and I suddenly wondered why we hadn’t shared this recipe

Mint tzatziki

Suitable from 10 months

Homemade tzatziki tastes so much better than the store-bought kind and is very simple to make. It is a great recipe to make alongside your little chef, who can help to tear up the mint, grate the cucumber or squeeze the garlic press and of course, stir the ingredients together. For me this tzatziki conjures

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
