Give me your recipes!


Hi!

My LO has been having solids since 4 months. We started on just porridge in the morning, and then gradually added in tea too. He's now having brekie and tea, but we've been using the jars. I'd now like to start cooking LO's meals myself, things that me, OH and LO can eat. But i don't have a clue where to start! He can handle lumps, so mashed food isn't a problem. Just wanted to hear some good recipes or books that people have to offer! Also.. just a few questions!

- Can my LO have whole milk, if it's in a food, say cheese sauce?
- Can he have cheese?
- I know i can't add salt to meals, but i bought some chicken the other day which did contain salt! Can i use it?
- If there is no previous allergy's in the family, has everyone followed the 3 day rule? Also say i was to cook a stew. Does that mean i have to follow the three day rule for each ingredient before i can offer it to him?

Think thats it
Look forward to hearing your replies!

Yes to whole milk in food

Yes to cheese

Depends on how much salt, babies under a year shouldn't have more than 1g a day

I never did the 3 day rule, I think that advice is outdated, especially if over 6 months.

The baby led weaning cookbook is good for recipes.

I love cooking baby food, can't offer any advice on the milk/cheese thing as my LO is on a dairy-free diet, but here are some of our faves:

- steamed parsnip and leek, pureed and mixed with mashed chicken
- potato medley - mashed sweet and white potato and butternut squash
- stewed plum puree with mashed stewed apple
- sweet potato puree with mashed chicken
- stewed apple puree mixed with basmati rice (I cook the rice in formula milk)
- steamed broccoli and garden peas puree with mashed white or sweet potato

I'm just bringing in lumps as she's starting to love chewing so I've started mixing purees and mash to get her used to it. I freeze purees in one side of an ice cube tray and mashed food in the other side, then use one cube of each per meal... if that makes sense!

Just remembered sainsburys have a baby club newsletter thing which always has nice looking recipes and they show you how to prepare them for you, for a toddler and for a baby.
