Dinner time is certainly a time where I don’t want to be cooking too many different meals. So where possible, we give baby girl the same food as us and vice versa. That in itself posed a challenge in the early days of BLW because we assumed that baby food would not have a lot of flavour, and we were not looking forward to eating bland food.
I then attended a talk held by the local health visitors and I was very pleased to hear that babies can eat meat from 6 months, salmon, chicken, beef and most other major proteins, and you can add mild spice to food, and as long as you avoid too much salt and a certain few other food. Basically, growing babies and toddlers can, and should, eat pretty much what you eat. Yey!! That knowledge has certainly has meant it is easier to take the little lady to restaurants with us!
Below is a list of main courses that have all be tried and tested by me and the family, and are firm family favourites. I am also starting to add homemade desserts to the list now too, so keep your eye out for new additions.
If you see a green (V) next to a recipe, or the word Ingredients in green, then it means that the basic recipe is suitable for vegetarians. (Variations may contain meat.)
