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.
For such a bland looking vegetable cauliflower is surprisingly nutrient rich. It provides one of the highest sources of calcium for a vegetable, with just 1/2 a cup of cauliflower containing 50 per cent of your recommended daily intake.
It’s also high in vitamin K — which is essential for the production of blood clotting factors — and high in folate which is super important for growing little bodies.
