Have you ever faced the "lack of inspiration" stage when preparing your baby's menu? From where do you get the inspiration?
I'm struggling with this right now! Help..

How old is your baby amanda? Have you thought about cooking family meals that you can all share? Think its called babyledweaning --or the lazy tarts way to feed your baby--grin

You could do thing like

Fish pie
Toad in the hole
Korma and rice
Roast dinner
Garlic chicken wars

Veggy chilli is a big hit here at the moment.

Anything pasta based has always gone down well here, right from when they first started on solids.

Mild chili is good too- though DS would pick out all the kidney beans to eat first.

I second going down the BLW route, if you haven't already. So much easier than faffing about making separate meals for everyone. There's no reason your baby can't eat the same things as you, as long as you keep an eye on salt levels.

I love the recipe search on the netmums website. Loads of good ideas for family meals.
