My DS is 10 months and he can't eat a jar/tin of baby food, it makes him really constipated! He has been eating proper food for 6 months and I have run out of ideas for things to cook him. Does anyone have any quick and easy recipies that I can try?
Thankyou these are really good! I do try to give him as much of our food as possible but its days when we have things like fish and chips (not very often) Does anyone have any ideas for lentils, I looked on the website but these things look quite fiddley.
Lentils are extremely easy to cook. Put them in water and boil for around 30 minutes or until they are soft. I liked to mix abit of vege and make it like a casserole.
I sprout lentils for dd and I like eating them too... they can also be cooked once sprouted into a lentil soup/casserole. I made a sprouted lentil, carrot and potato soup with abit of stock the other day.... it was very tasty.
The pikelet idea mentioned... I make millet pancakes (or you could make the regular versions) they are tasty and easy to consume.
It is simple and really healthy... and did I mention dirt cheap. I have a sprout house I am such a devotee. Mungs beans are good sprouted too... bit like having a pea patch in a jar. Most kids love peas
Lentil stew - fry onion, carrot, and anyother veg you have lying around. Add lentils (I tend to use 1/2 pack orange, and a handful of puy or yellow - the bigger ones don't go as squashy so add texture) Cover with water, plus half an inch, bring to boil, simmer until soft.
I tend to make a bit extra of our food when we have stews, and then mash and freeze in portions or ice cubes to get out when we are having stuff he can't
