I’m very excited to say my new revised and updated edition of Easy Indian Super Meals for Babies, Toddlers and the Family (Ebury press) is now available for pre-order from Amazon UK (released 7th July 2016). This edition includes:
- Updated UK Department of Health guidelines
- Updated weaning advice
- Updated nutritional information
- NEW one week meal plan – transition your baby safely over from stage 1 weaning, to weaning with baby-friendly spices and new flavours.
This is an exceptionally yummy meal babies and toddlers will both love! In fact this was my little ones favourite curry and she still requests it for dinner. So these days I cook this curry up as a family meal but simply increase the levels of spice and amount of chicken and veg to keep everyone happy.
This meal is great for older babies – around 10 months of age and is perfectly nutritionally balanced. So not only is the taste fab, it’s a mean curry with immune strengthening ingredients. Here’s the breakdown:
As I was growing up it was always a tradition in my home to have a nice big family breakfast on a weekend – Saturday or Sunday morning (sometimes both). I remember as a child I’d always look forward to our weekend breakfasts. It was much nicer than simply have cereal in the mornings (which was nice), but associated with quick school morning breakfasts. Now my little one has started school for the very first time (just last week), I’m keen to carry on this family tradition with my own family. So the big weekend breakfast mornings have begun.
I rustled this omelette up very quickly on Sunday morning and it went down a treat with everyone. Protein-rich, full of yummy fresh vegetables and a little spice for extra flavour. This omelette is great for the whole family including babies and toddlers, particularly for baby-led weaning. It’s healthy and the best part – it’s a one-pot (or one-pan in this case) family meal which means less pots to wash (hassle-free)! It also makes a fab healthy breakfast for those searching for satisfying and tasty carb-free meals, so it ticks a lot of boxes! Here’s the recipe – enjoy!
Here’s a lovely, light summer muffin recipe I love and really enjoy cooking during the summer months. This savoury muffin is great for the whole family including baby so it’s definitely worth adding to your weekly meal planner! Muffins are great for baby-led weaning and as this recipe is so delicious and simple to prepare, it will be a firm favourite with everyone in the family.
The paprika in this recipe is mild and adds a distinct flavour for baby. The cheese I like to use is simple, yet effective… Cheddar cheese – a staple in everyone’s household. And if it currently isn’t in your fridge, it really should be! It’s yummy and very, very versatile! My little one loves this muffin – hope yours does too! x
It’s beautiful outside (most days), the temperature is up and our British summer is well and truly underway! Which means it’s a great time consider weaning baby with fresh, locally sourced summer fruits and vegetables readily available in the supermarkets. Or if you’re a keen gardener, from your very own back garden! Weaning baby during the summer months also means light, fresh meals will go down really well.
A slightly different post from me today… a round up of the weekend’s Baby Show at the NEC in Birmingham (15th – 17th May). It was a hectic three days – the stand was super busy – thankfully my family was nice enough to help out! I was live speaking on the Made for Mums stage on Friday and Saturday, met some fantastic people and had some really great positive feedback from parents looking to wean their babies with yummy aromatic flavours and spices.
