Only 7 days to go until book launch! Eek! Super duper excited, I hope you are too. To help you get an idea of the range of recipes in The Flavour-led Weaning Cookbook, here is another recipe I’d like to share. My Thai Chicken Curry recipe suitable for babies from 10 months onwards.
Generally I find curries always tend to go down well with babies and toddlers – Aaliyah always lapped them up. Something about the combination of delicious flavours and a lovely aromatic curry sauce means it tastes amazing and is easy for babies to eat. I used these recipes to spoon-feed Aaliyah, but also for baby-led weaning. I’d simply hand Aaliyah her little spoon, and she’d happily feed herself. Give it a try, I hope you and your little one enjoy.
So I’m at count down now with book launch number 2 – 10 days to go! Whilst every time I think about the launch, my heart is literally pounding out of my chest [I’m that scared!], I am also very excited and proud at the same time. It really is a fab book, and I’m really excited to hear all your thoughts about it. Please feel free to leave me comments below.
So onto my recipe! This is a delicious, mildly sweet yet earthy tasting two-veg mash taken from my cookbook – The Flavour-led Weaning Cookbook. Perfect for tickling a baby’s sweet and savoury taste buds. Beetroot may encourage the production of disease-fighting white blood cells and contains folic acid and iron. Broccoli is also rich in vitamin C while turmeric is known as an anti-inflammatory spice. With all these immune-boosting ingredients, this yummy mash may help to keep colds and flu at bay. Suitable for babies from 7 months.
Sweet and yummy! This protein-rich fish dish is high in a range of B vitamins and will go down a treat with your little one. Suitable for babies from 7 months onwards (Stage 2).
Super excited friends! My brand new weaning cookbook – The Flavour-led Weaning Cookbook, will be released in just a few weeks time (2nd March)! So I thought I’d give you a taster of some of the recipes. Starting with some delicious, puree recipes.
This Kiwi, Mint and Lime puree recipe is suitable for babies from 6 months, after first tastes and mixed-ingredient purees have been accepted.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this one! It’s a beautiful puree – fresh, sweet, sour and uplifting. Kiwis and limes are an excellent source of vitamin C, necessary for cold and flu protection. The mint is fresh-tasting and aids digestion. A wonderful combination of flavours.
So this recipe is a golden oldie… literally! It’s golden appearance and soft texture makes it a wonderful treat for baby, and taken from my first ever ebook published 4 ½ years ago, it’s definitely an oldie. I decided to publish this recipe at the request of one of my lovely followers, so I hope you all enjoy.
Suji (sooji) is a traditional Indian and Pakistani pudding made from semolina. Semolina is made from durum wheat, so provided your little one doesn’t have a wheat allergy, this one will go down a treat! Aaliyah loved this one – well-mashed, naturally sweet and with tiny little soft lumps, is perfect for working your little one’s tongue muscles to help speech develop. It’s also super easy and quick to cook – ready in just 15 minutes. Suitable for babies from 7 months onwards.
So it appears tis the season to have a high fever! Aaliyah has been ill with a virus twice in the last month! Whilst I have been giving her Calpol to bring down her fever, I also want her to give her body a chance to build up it’s own immunity, instead of giving her medication all the time.
I’ve always incorporated herbs and spices into Aaliyah’s diet since she was a baby, which has been great for her immune system, but recently the viruses seem to be coming thick and fast at school. So I wanted to give her immune system a little boost with a natural remedy that would help.
One HUGE problem! Natural remedies taste pretty awful! The mix of spices and ingredients used aren’t to create a lovely taste… it’s to do a job. Heal! As an adult, I’ll close my eyes and knock back a natural remedy, fully aware that it can taste vile, but ultimately know it’s best for my system. But try telling that to a child!
