Theo has finally reached the age where I can’t stop him stealing food from my plate and shoving it in his mouth, so it’s time to start weaning.
Louis was a winter baby, so weaning started with summer fruit and veg. With Theo being a summer baby, he’ll start weaning on winter delights. So it’s time to invent a whole new set of weaning recipes – and to dig out the jumbo-sized ice cube trays and industrial-strength bibs!
I was wondering whether any of you are weaning babies at the moment?
How is it going? Are you going for it with root vegetables or sticking with pears and apples? What are you doing to make swede or turnip more palatable to a little one? Or are you avoiding the issue?
I’d love to hear your experiences and maybe share some recipes.
We’re still at the pear and apple stage, but will soon move on to squashes and more adventurous vegetables.
I have a friend of a friend whose baby loved butternut squash so much, she fed it to her baby every day for months. Allegedly the baby took on a worrying orange hue… :-)
