This is Harry’s dinner tonight and is packed so full of goodness, I just love watching him devour it. Quinoa is such a staple in this house now, if you missed my earlier post, you can see here why I prefer it over rice. We have started a great collection of quinoa recipes on the blog, so I promise you will get good use out of the packet.

Note: store bought stock generally contains added salt and gluten – in general homemade is best or check for gluten free specified, if required for allergy purposes.

Are you a new mum about to start your baby on solids and looking for some puree suggestions? Or maybe, its your 2nd, 3rd or 4th child and need some new ideas? You will love our post with 50 BABY PUREE IDEAS.
