Any simple alternatives for her to munch on would be very muchly appreciated.

at this stage ds loved a veg pasta sauce with courgettes, aubergines, onion, mushrooms and tinned toms. I'd whizz it up with some cream and cheese.

sounds lovely... can you use tin toms at that age??
Thought they had to much salt??

Think i'm doing stuff to much by the book!

Some tinned toms do and some don't - you have to check the ingrediants

Today I did tuna and sweetcorn pasta - onion, garlic, olive oil tinned tomatoes, tinned sweetcorn, tuna and cheese sauce (cheese milk flour unsalted butter).

Ds (8mths) loved it

do you whizz up your pasta recipes with a blender? Do you find that it then has rather an unpleasant sticky gloopy consistency? Or are you buying special baby pasta that doesn't need to be chopped/blended?

an 8 month old should be able to eat well-cooked whole pasta .. fusille / macaroni etc .. its gret finger food

use similar recipes to those suggested here but I use spaghetti and break it into small pieces before cooking.

thanks for all the recipes guys.

like the idea of breaking up spaghetti.

i use normal pasta or soup pasta but also find it to be rather gloopy when blended?

can you freeze patsa and spaghetti/bulk make?

PanicPants Thu 18-May-06 10:07:12

Hope so because I've just frozen tuna and sweetcorn pasta!

Annabelle K says you can so must be true!

I give my DS pasta, roasted veg |& cheese mixed together as a finger food.

Can you give an 8 month old pesto pasta? I LOVE it as it's sooo easy - just cook the pasta and put in a spoon ful of pesto from a jar - but can I give this to DS?

We did. One tsp isn't going to contain much salt at all. The pesto we get doesn't have anyhting else nasty in it. DS loves it! We also add soft cheese to the sauce - makes it lovely and creamy, and increases the protein.
