This lamb, veggie and quinoa mash was my sons absolute favourite. I would often mix up the vegetables used depending what was in season. You can also try it with cous cous, risoni or rice. There are endless possibilities when pureeing food combinations for your baby. When you introduce your baby to a wide variety of flavour combinations it helps to develop taste buds, encourage food acceptance, and discourage fussy eating.
Nutrition Note: Lamb is rich in iron – vital for brain development in infants and children.
STARTING SOLIDS: Do you know anyone who is about to start their baby on solids? Our first book How to raise a healthy, happy eater has been called ‘The Starting Solids Bible’ by some readers. Or our Baby Foodie e-Book is full of recipe’s, nutrition advice and forming positive food associations right from the first mouthful to help you and your baby through any fussy eating phases in the future.
