Baby friendly recipe ideas


Here are some quick and easy tasty recipes for your little one. I started Harry with these recipes from about 6/7 months old. The finger food lunch ideas are great for their hand eye coordination and to encourage led weaning.


Egg Muffins

Ingredients: 2 large eggs, Handful of spinach, small cherry tomatoes 2-3 copped, ham 2 slices, Cheese 30g

Method: Blend up your ham, cheese, spinach in a food blender for about 10 seconds. Chop up your cherry tomatoes. Crack two eggs into a bowl, add in all the ingredients and mix. Add some oil to a muffin tray. Add the mixture to the muffin tray and heat for 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Once cooled down serve to your little one, tweet the recipe to your little ones likes/dislike. Super easy, quick lunch idea packed full of yummy vegetables.


Avocado and banana puree

Ingredients: 1 avocado, 1 Banana

Method: Mash up an avocado in a bowl. Once mashed, add in the banana and mash into the avocado mix. If you prefer to add both ingredients to a food blender for a smooth consistency. This recipe is a delish combination and full of healthy fats for you little one.


Chicken and sweetcorn pizza wrap

Ingredients: Tomato puree, one mini tortilla wrap, cheese 20-30 grams, sweetcorn, chicken pieces

Method: Spread a tablespoon of tomato puree on a mini tortilla wrap. Sprinkle the cheese on top. Add some sweetcorn and some pulled chicken pieces. Pop into the oven at 180 degrees for 10 minutes. Once cooled down cut into little triangles, I serve this with a Greek yogurt dip and some berries on the side.
