Hi,

My 7 month old who has CMPA only eats bland food and refuses everything else I offer. Bland food is plain chicken, plain bread, plain pasta etc. I don't know what to do and what meals I can give him. Any ideas? Will he grow out of this? hmm

I wouldn't worry too much at this stage, just keep offering the good and don't worry too much if he doesn't eat. His nutrition should be coming from milk and he won't starve himself.

I'm CMPI and tomorrow for breakfast we are having blueberry pancakes made with almond milk, do you think you'd like to give those a try?

Yes! Do you have rage recipe? I have oats milk in the fridge.

Do you think it could be the textures that he's refusing rather than it necessarily being the flavour? Chicken, bread and pasta are quite dense textures, so maybe it's that that he's enjoying?

You could try spreading mashed veg thinly on the bread, or if you have a breadmaker there will be tons of recipes online for adding things like courgette, carrot, banana etc to the machine. What about something like roasted vegetable wedges so they are still quite solid, but introducing a few more flavours?

Lightly Cover the bottom of a frying pan with vegetable or sunflower oil and hear, medium should do.

Mix in a large bowl:

125g plain flour
2 tsp sugar (you could leave this out if you really wanted)
1tsp baking powder
Half tsp bicarbonate soda

In a jug mix 150ml of milk, oat milk should be fine
1 egg
A few drops of vanilla essence

Pour the contents of the jug into the bowl and mix together, I use a hand held mixer.

Using a tablespoon put the batter into the frying pan, they should be about scotch pancake size. You just put the blueberries in as you have put the batter in the pan.

Once they start bubbling flip then over, leave until brown and serve.

I'm told they freeze well but my lot always gobbled them up smile

Jilted, thanks!

Greta, never thought of that, and it might just be the case. Ill try other things too. I hope it's just a short phase
