Baby Food

Waiting for lunch...
Thought I would do a post on all the meals and foods that the babies have had so far...

Meals I have made them:
Lamb and vegetable,rosemary and garlic puree
Chicken, brown rice, tomato, onion and garlic puree
Chicken, butternut, sweet potato, onion, pea puree
Fish, sweet potato, corn and pea puree
Cheesy Brocolli and chicken
Quinoa, beans and banana puree
Apple, Pear, Blueberry, Banana, Vanilla and cinnamon puree
Apricot and banana and vanilla puree

They have also had a range of fresh Woolies meals and organic sachets of interesting things like:

Salmon, millet and vegetables
Cheesy Pasta
Spaghetti Bolognese
Pasta and Veg
Quinoa, Black Bean and Mango
Beef Stew
Cottage Pie
Brocolli and chicken
Turkey and veggies

Fruits so far:
Banana, Apple, Pear, Apricot, Berries, Mango, Avos, Pawpaw, Cherry, Pineapple, Prunes, Peaches.

Rice Cakes, cream cheese, eggs, yoghurt, mollasses.

My next meals ideas:
Chicken, butternut, coconut milk, red peppers, coriander
Homemade cottage pie with veggies
Homemade Spag Bog, basil, parmesan
Chicken and Lentil stew
Creamy Fish Chowder

Also want to start giving finger foods and encourage them to feed themselves:
- Avocado, diced
- Peaches, pears, plums; diced
- Bananas, diced
- Beans, cooked
- Peas, steamed
- Semi-soft cheese diced
- Carrots, cooked until soft
- Small, whole grain pasta, cooked
- Sweet potato, baked and diced

Rebecca tolerates new foods really well and doesn't mind textures or solid foods.  Finn on the other hand doesn't always like new tastes - he isn't fond of fish at all and gags when foods are too textured. Neither of them seem to like scrambled egg at all but I will keep trying with this as it is a quick easy meal. My ideal is for both of them to be easy eaters..let's hope so ;)

  1. You cook such interesting stuff. Thats awesome. Jayden likes scrambled egg and cheese, but doesn't like fish fingers. He doesn't want to swallow it. Persist persist persist, this is my mantra when it comes to food.
