BBC Asian Network Live Interview

It’s a week after book launch and I can honestly say it’s been manic! The interviews and reviews started a couple of week’s before launch and it’s been non-stop ever since. It’s been fab though and totally worth it! I’m super pleased to say the book is going really well!! I’ve had some simply fabulous reviews from Gurgle magazine, Reveal magazine, and from mummies who have tried and tested the book. You can read some of their views on it here:

Let Them Be Small

I was also lucky enough to appear on the BBC Asian Network on Wednesday to talk weaning, and ‘Flavour-led Weaning’. I was on The Big Debate show with Qasa Alom from 12pm. It was great fun, and a lovely listener from Scotland even called the show to say how great it was that I was focusing on weaning with aromatic flavours and spices, as she too couldn’t find any sort of guidance when she was weaning her children.

If you didn’t catch the interview on the BBC Asian Network (12.15pm on Wednesday 8th March) , you can hear it here. Approx 15 minutes in length.

Banana and Coconut Pancakes – Stage 2 Finger Food

banana-and-coconut-pancakesI love Pancake Day!! Back in the 80’s there was only one way to eat your pancakes… a sprinkling of sugar and a dash of fresh lemon! Simply delicious. Thinking about it, that’s probably one of my earliest memories of loving the sweet and sour flavour combination.

Whilst delicious, there was a lot of refined sugar involved so it was definitely an occasional treat. As I grew I realised there were lots of just-as-delicious flavour combinations to try with pancakes. So when I was weaning Aaliyah, I was  keen to offer her a healthy, flavoursome alternative – one with natural sugars that she would love. Here it is below, inspired by Caribbean flavours – banana, coconut, allspice and cinnamon. This is a fantastic baby-led weaning recipe for babies from 7 months and up. Great for older children of school age too. So give this one a go with your little one this Pancake Day. It’s healthy, and makes a fab, yummy alternative.

Thai Chicken Curry – Stage 3

thai-chicken-curryOnly 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.
