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.
Broccoli is my go-to staple whenever any of us are sick. It’s a powerhouse of vitamin C and stacked with other vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, iron, vitamin K, B-complex vitamins, zinc, phosphorus and phyto-nutrients.
We’ve all been horribly sick over the past few days and now that our stomachs are able to handle any food I wanted to pack as many bug-fighting nutrients as I could into one dish to help us continue on the path to recovery.
Not only has this pasta got hidden broccoli, but it has also got some sneaky spinach in there too which is a great source of iron and loaded with antioxidants.
I know what you’re thinking… “why would I make my own dip when I can just buy it?”. Well, for starters this one tastes DELICIOUS and secondly you’d be surprised with just how much sugar and salt is actually hidden in supermarket dips.
This one is salt and sugar-free so is great for the whole family from your biggest to littlest member. It’s also a great food to try when your baby is relatively new to solids as it is soft and smooth enough that they can easily eat it.
AND it’s easy to make. The longest part of this recipe is the roasting of the eggplant. The rest is chop and chuck in the food processor.
