Favourite Recipes: Baby, Toddler, Family Food

By : | 0 Comments | On : August 14, 2014 | Category : Fussy Eaters, Kids Cooking, Nutrition, Solids

I often get asked what my son’s favourite puree’s, finger foods and dinners were as a baby and toddler and now as a busy 3 year old. Harry has never been particularly fussy and loves to eat Tasting Plate style, but there are some meals that stand out as things we would make time and time again. I must admit, with hundreds of recipes on the blog this took some time to decide on, but here is the list! This is a nice trip down memory lane for me as I will soon be starting my new baby Amelia, on solids.

Here are my or I should say Harry’s top 5 in each category. I would love to hear your children’s favourite meals too.
