  • Recipes for 8 months - week 1

    This week there's a mix of recipes, depending on your baby's ability to cope with lumps. For those who are getting more confident with solid textures, there's a tasty lamb rice casserole, which can be chopped into smaller lumps to suit your child. For babies who aren't too keen on vegetables, we also have secret veggie and tomato pasta sauces, plus roasted mediterranean vegetables with cous cous.
