I’m not going to write about the pros and cons of different kinds of weaning here, as it’s not really a proper parenting blog, and there are many people who will no doubt a) do it better, b) do it more passionately, and c) argue with me every step of the way. In this post all I am doing is putting a few ideas out there about different kinds of foods that might lend themselves to family meals whilst tempting the little blighters to try what’s on their plates.
Birchermuesli (see Austerity breakfast recipes) – no nuts
Diluted apple juice
Home made macaroni soup (for baby – poured over small squares of bread) handful of grated cheese on top.
Sliced kiwi fruit.
Chicken and mushroom stew with little balls of sticky rice
Strawberries dipped in fromage frais
Stewed eating apple pieces with raisins
Fresh fruit milkshake
Houmous and pitta bread pieces, salad
Banana split yoghurt
Omelette (in strips for baby)
Melon balls or pieces, with optional ginger on top for older family members
