This is a great favourite with my family. Grated apple adds a delicious flavour to these chicken balls, which makes them appealing to young children, and they are tasty hot or cold.You can freeze them after they have been cooked. You can then re heat in the microwave.
Babies like the combination of chicken and fruit. Dried apricots are one of nature's great health foods. They are a good source of betacarotene, iron and potassium and the drying process increases their concentration. They also make great finger food, This is good by itself or you can mix with 4 tablespoons of cooked rice or pasta.
The oats in these incredibly moreish flapjacks give a slow energy release for your child and the dried fruit is full of fibre. They will keep children going on busy days. These are also fun for children to make themselves.
Tuna Pasta Bake Recipe the whole family can enjoy tonight
Unlike fresh tuna, tinned tuna does not contain omega-3 fatty acids, however it is rich in protein, vitamin D and vitamin B12. This is a very tasty pasta dish which uses a tin of tomato soup as my secret ingredient.
When your child refuses to eat anything from a spoon, try making these nutritious finger foods. Great way to get little ones to eat oily fish, which is the best source of essential fatty acids, needed for brain development. Omit the salt and pepper for babies under one year.
Serving cooked rice with vegetables is an ideal way to introduce texture to your baby's food. Butternut squash is now more readily available in supermarkets, although you could substitute it with pumpkin instead.
My daughter Lara really likes fritters. She often has them as a snack so I keep a supply of them in the freezer. To freeze them, wrap the cooled fritters in foil in a single layer with 2 fritters per packet. To serve preheat the oven to 180C/350F/160 fan and put the frozen fritters on a baking sheet. Bake for approximately 8 minutes, until hot. These sweetcorn fritters can also be made with gluten free flour.
