Halibut is a white fish that is very mildly-flavoured, making it a good choice as a first fish for baby to try. Chop broccoli and fish into smaller or large pieces, depending on how much texture your baby can handle.
White Rice, Halibut and Broccoli Dinner
Toasted Spiced Flatbread with Yogurt Tzatziki Dip
When the kids are whining for the supper that isn’t ready yet, this is great to put on the table to tide them over. Use flavoured spicy olive oil for a spicy version.
Brown Rice Pudding with Soy Milk and Dried Blueberries
Precooked frozen rice is a great short-cut to this brown rice breakfast pudding. Especially welcome on a cold winter morning! Substitute vanilla soy milk and omit vanilla, if you prefer.
Granola-Topped Apricot Yogurt with Skewered Blueberries
Yogurt and granola provide the protein your family needs to make it through to lunch. Substitute their favourite jam.
Tomato Basil Pizzettes
These mini pizzas are sure to be a hit with your toddler. If your toddler likes cooked broccoli, peas or spinach, add them before baking.
Wholesome Chicken Carrot and Brown Rice Puree
If you’re making chicken breasts for the entire family, throw an extra one on to use in this pureed baby food. Alternatively, you can use leftover roast chicken or poached chicken breast. Chicken is often one of the first meats recommended for babies’ diets, as it is easily digested.
Silky Quinoa and Squash
Make quinoa for supper and pull out 1 cup of it to make this dinner for baby. Quinoa is an ancient grain that is high in protein. Store leftovers in individual portion sizes for use in the following days; freezing it in ice cube trays makes for easy portioning later on. Don’t give up if your child doesn’t seem to like quinoa, or any other specific food- you need to expose children to a new flavour up to ten times before they take to it.
Havarti and Turkey Reuben
This twist on a deli classic offers a less fatty option than a traditional Reuben sandwich. If you don’t have a panini press, crisp in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat just like a grilled cheese.
Jazzed Up Oatmeal
Dress up your morning oatmeal with our dried berry blend and honey, at a fraction of the cost of buying it at a coffee shop.
Cheesy Breakfast Melts
These open-faced breakfast sandwiches are low in fat and take only minutes to prepare. Any ripe tomato can be used instead of grape tomatoes, just cut them into a medium dice. Be sure to serve immediately so the cheese is nice and gooey!
