Hi Mums!! I was wondering what you were all planning to give your little ones for there Christmas dinner? Shall they be tucking into a baby friendly version of the family meal or are you planning something a little different for them?
This year I don't have to make any purees so am quite excited about my little ones having there own little versions of our Dinner!! I am also going to be making baby/toddler friendly canapes for when we have friends/family around so they can get stuck in and I don't have to worry about someone giving them something they shouldn't!! There is always someone trying to sneak them something they shouldn't have as a treat (sigh!), so I shall be cooking all my sweet foods (biscuits, cakes, etc) with agave syrup and fruit sugar to avoid any sugar rushes and crashes, in both children and adults!! lots of homemade dips, crudites and breads always go down a treat with everyone too!

We are giving Annabel some of our Christmas dinner - with ALL the trimmings! Lots of bread sauce, cranberry sauce, roasted parsnips, glazed carrots, oh my gosh my mouth is watering just thinking about it ha ha.
She's a bit young for Christmas pudding and brandy sauce (but maybe next year!!! ha ha).

For breakfast we will have christmas spiced pancakes then we will all be having a turkey dinner not sure what he will make of sprouts though!! Last year he was only a couple of months old so it will be lovely to sit at the table with him this year and enjoy a nice family meal

Christmas dinner went down a treat, leek and potato soup, baked salmon, veggie roast, roast potatoes, mash potatoes, carrots, broccoli, French beans. he tried brussel sprouts sprouts, but most ended up on the floor. he loved chocolate log for pudding.

Marley enjoyed his first three course meal christmas day and had everything we had, spiced roast parsnip soup, turkey and all the trimmings and ice cream for pudding. (He was on the water while we were on the bubly though ) He stayed in his high chair for longer than he ever has before and did not moan once

Wow! Hope you all had a fab Christmas!! Annabel loved her meal!!! She actually had two Christmas dinners as we have one on Christmas day with my in-laws, then with my family on Boxing day! She ate everything we offered (as per usual). It was so lovely to have her at the table with us, she sat in-between me and Daddy.
Daddy let her try Christmas pudding, after the initial shudder from the strong taste she ate a few mouthfuls! Annabel then swiped a piece of my chocolate cake (I don't like Christmas pudding) and of course wanted more.
I also got some time off from Annabel so that I could cook for the masses, it was great!!
