Introducing your baby to solids is such an exciting time. It is usually recommended to start with solids when your baby is around 6 months of age; but always check with your health care professional first.
Research has shown that where babies have home made food, they tend to be less fussy eaters later in life. Making your own baby purees is not only very satisfying, but has a positive effect on the environment and on an economic note is good for the family budget.
I know from my new mothers classes that not every mother feels so confident in the kitchen; and some Mothers are daunted by the prospect of baby weaning. Therefore I hope that this blog series will give you a few ideas for your baby on their weaning journey.
Over the next few weeks I will share with you some of the recipes that I made for my children. Whilst re making these recipes for you it bought back very fond memories of weaning our second child in the “Fall” in New England.
1. ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH
This recipe is a firm favourite with little people. Roasting the butternut gives it a sweet taste. You can make this as a batch and store in the fridge for up to 3 days, or freeze in portions for a later date.
