DS has CMPA so yoghurt is a no go. What do you give for pudding besides fruit?

hi, how old is your son? My daughter has a CMPA but is okay with goat (st Helen's farm) and sheep yog (woodland farm) of which you can buy in the supermarkets. I make fruit purée's and mix them in. Other puds I make are rice pudding made with rice or oat milk and baked sweet potato, blended with coconut milk, maple syrup, cinnamon and raisins.

Thanks, he is 8 months. Losing interest in pur�e and letting me feeding so looking for finger food ideas.

Been told by dietician to steer clear of dairy till 1yo but am going to try soya yogs soon.

I'd say at 8 mo, he doesn't really need pudding - best not to encourage a sweet too early on. I'm sure experimenting with lots of different fruits would be enough of a variety for your DS at this stage. With summer coming, he'll be able to try all the different types of berries around which will be fun. My DD loved mango and blueberries at that age. She'd spend hours trying to pick up the blueberries between 2 fingers - was very cute.

I'd go easy on Soya, it is one of the 5 top allergens and does contain phytoestrogens (plant oestrogens). I know when I have soya milk every day it affects my cycles. So for growing boys especially, I would use soya just occasionally. I've worked with kids with allergies for over 10 years - and it's best to keep it simple at this stage.

Good luck with it all, he sounds a spirited chap wanting to feed himself already! Best wishes.

Thanks. Yes I'm not going to try soya yog for another couple of months and wont give regularly. They are already trying to convince me to try alpro+1 milk in place of the hydrolysed formula but ive refused that for the reason you mention.

Ive just bought some dried apricots (without sulphur dioxide) for him to try and a soreen banana loaf as im looking for things i can also carry around with me.

He doesn't have much sweet stuff at the moment and much prefers veg to fruit tbh.

Another advocate of kids don't need pudding here - except I have a big eater and like to give a variety!

100g flour, 1 egg, 2 mashed bananas and 50g melted butter (vitalite is dairy free) makes nice mini muffins with no sugar. Chuck in some oats/raisins/other fruit for variation

Nakd bars are lovely, and you can get recipes online to make your own (although I had to stop because all those dates and apricots had an unfortunate effect wink)

You can make rice and tapioca pudding with coconut milk

Apples and pears stewed and mixed with some oats makes "crumble" - custard powder is just cornflour and colouring so could be made up with rice/other milk.

Ohh those muffins sound ace purple i already have vitalite for him so ill have a go! Is it plain or self raising flour?

PurplePidjin Wed 09-Apr-14 16:41:43

supposed to be sr but i only have plain - 1tsp baking powder sorts it out though smile

oh and they're really crumble without the banana - be warned, it's essential unless you only ever eat outdoors wink

JRmumma Wed 09-Apr-14 16:45:17

Brill. I have sr flour as i love a dumpling. How are you baking? Temp and time? Thanks

JRmumma Wed 09-Apr-14 17:03:18
