I have been writing recipes for over 10 years (we recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary 🎉). It's always the simple recipes that parents enjoy. Combining flavours is something I love to do and gives your baby early exposure to different tastes and sometimes adds just a little texture. Such as blending peas or herbs where this will be slightly different to just blending a carrot.
Here I show you our most popular recipes, most of which are in my Baby & Family recipe book. They are perfect for all stages of solids, and all of these recipes are full of natural and healthy ingredients. Enjoy…

Porridge is the perfect food to give your weaning baby. Filling and sustaining, porridge is relatively rich in protein and also a source of iron. Change it up each morning by adding yoghurt, fruit purée, grated or mashed fruit. For a tasty finger food snack, simply shape oats into balls, include sticks of fruit and allow baby to pick up the porridge by themselves.
