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

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

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.

Mint choc chip smoothie

Suitable from 8 months

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

Children’s spicy latte

Rosemary & black pepper crackers

Suitable from 10 months

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

Chocolate & walnut muesli

Suitable from 12 months

In case you haven’t noticed, I love experimenting. When I’m in a creative food mood, I can’t think of anything better than opening my drawers and cupboards and concocting something new from the ingredients inside. This also happens when I’ve run out of the ingredients I usually use for a particular recipe. I’ve been on

Spelt porridge with apricots & nuts

Spelt is an ancient grain which is native to southern Europe, where it has been used for millenniums.

Avocado & strawberry smoothie

Suitable from 8 months

I made up this avocado smoothie one day when my son was going through a fussy patch because of his teeth and didn’t want to eat anything except cold dairy and fruit. It is perfectly normal but nevertheless worrying when a baby with a previously voracious appetite suddenly refuses to eat anything but yogurt and
