Introducing a variety of spices to your children’s diet from an early age goes a long way to avoiding having fussy eaters later on.
Babies all around the world are dining on herbs and spices from a young age, however in western society it seems most babies get stuck with boring tasteless mush.
Curries are a great way to pack in lots of vegetables, nutrients and flavour into a relatively simple dish. Curry is a perfect food when your child is new to solids because it often can be pureed down very easily.
This curry is super mild so perfect for beginners and those who don’t like things too spicy. It is also loaded with goodness from pumpkin, cauliflower, lentils, chickpeas and fish.
Having a sick little baby is definitely no fun at all! I remember the first time Molly got a cold and it was THE WORST. She was up for most of the night and was crying constantly because she didn’t really know what was going on or understand why she wasn’t feeling well.
With Molly now in childcare it seems like she gets sick all the time. Kids seem to pick up things so easily and are always passing bugs onto each other. But it’s how they build strong immune systems into the future and I’m assured that after the first year of childcare their immune systems are stronger and they’re not sick ALL the time.
What we eat and feed our kids plays an enormous role in how our body functions and fights sickness.
Fritatta is one of my favourite easy dinner recipes. It can be on the table in less than 20 minutes and is absolutely delicious with a big side salad.
It also makes for a perfect breakfast and lunch option too.
A lot of people often ask me if I don’t eat eggs or if eggs are bad for you because many of my recipes are egg-free. The answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT!
Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods in the world. They are a high quality protein and a great food to feed kids because the protein helps to support their growth. Eggs also contain folate, vitamin A, iron, zinc, iodine and omega-3s.
