Would just like a few new ideas for DD's dinner. Looking for things she can pick up and hold and that are quite substantial. I currently make her veggie nuggets, sweetcorn fritters, fishfingers and chicken fingers. I want a little more variety but am stuck for ideas. Thanks.
The Babyled weaning cookbook is meant to be quite good. Ideas that I have served: little ricotta pancakes, scrambled egg, vegetable stew and dumplings Tofu and veggie stirfry crumpets or bread with nut butters
Bagels All manner of sandwiches. Banana avocado or peanut butter or hummus are good cos they stay together Baked eggs Hard boiled eggs Eggy bread Pancakes Toast Baked beans Pasta n pesto Breadsticks n dip Yoghurt n fruit Soup with big chunks of bread dunked in it
Falafel Risotto balls Chunky ratatouille Beef/chicken/lamb casserole with big chunks of veg Small fishcakes Pasta (fusilli easiest to pick up) with tomato or cheese sauce Pizza fingers Strips of omelette (with mushrooms, ham, cheese...) Small homemade meat patties/ burgers Long green beans, asparagus, baby corn, carrot batons, broccoli/cauliflower florets etc, perhaps with cheese sauce
At 11 months she will probably have a good pincer grip and may enjoy picking up individual peas, sweetcorn kernels etc
