Advice needed, 10 month old ds twins who are devouring everything put in front of them. But the question is can they have quorn products? (Mince or pieces). I'm veggie and it would make life easier as they could occaisonally have the same food as me. They do eat meat. Loads of it!
Also any hints about casseroles i can make dh and boys would be fab! Have made goulash which they all loved, and the one pot meal idea really appeals to me! Just fed up of making 3 meals! veggie for me, meat for dh and boys food!
mama2mooandbabymoo, Thanks i have picked up the book and thats what got me thinking. Liamsadaddy, have you tried paprika as a flavouring? its ok for little ones, (mine love it) and it does make quorn more tasty! I also love it with mushroom sauce!
The official guidelines on quorn are that whilst it isn't harmful to babies, it isn't very good food for them because it is so low calories and fat, which babies need. But I can't remember where I read that, the quorn website I think. I'll have a look. Tofu is much better, as are beans and lentils and cheese. Soya is a definite no because it contains hormones or something!
ooh I didn't know this thanks. DCs aren't vegetarian, but they both seem to prefer quorn to meat, will try to convince them to eat the real stuff TBH with DS we just wanted him to eat protein - anything - so when he started eating quorn I was over the moon. But now he will tend to eat the meat version of bolognaise, cottage pie etc...
DD (8.5mo) has just devoured a curry i made with quorn and borlotti beans and loads of veg - with a coconut based mild sauce. It was yummy and so easy to make just one huge curry for all of us.
She is still having loads of BM so im not worried about calories - she is a porker. I reckon, if you have a decent diet then they can just eat what you eat, perhaps chopped up a bit. DD was eating a full corn cob the other day. BLW rules!!
