I feel like I'm being repetitive with what I offer DS but am struggling to find any inspiration? Can I ask what you are giving your babies??

Also - what is easy to cook and then freeze? I'm going back to work soon and need to start thinking about this as I will need something quick but also tasty!!

Thanks in advance!!

My dd is 9 months and will only eat yoghurt off a spoon so everything is finger food. In addition to fruit and veg

Examples are

Toast and various toppings banana, avacado, dairylea
Eggy bread
Omlette
Veggie muffins
Lentil and cheese wedges
Fish cakes
Pitta with tuna mayo
Hummous
Pasta and cheese sauce
Veggie fritters

My freezer staples are veggie muffins, meatloaf portions, sweet potato and butternut squash wedges, and mini oven omelettes (omelette recipe cooked in muffin tins)

I also have mini portions of tomato sauce with veg and herbs, and cheese sauce squirrelled away.

Frozen veg is your friend.

I don't blw. I'm old school- cook, puree, freeze but it works for us.

DD loves
chicken pasta bake
cottage pie
spag bol
chicken korma
veg risotto

I add quite a bit of extra veg to these meals.

These are the foods I cook a massive pot of. Have for tea that night and freeze loads for the days when I cook something I can't give her.

She's just 11 months btw but I've been doing this for months.

Hello smile dd is 8 months and mostly baby led weaning, her choice! she's a mini dustbin and will eat most things we do, eg:
Omelette
Scrambled egg
Spaghetti bol
Soup (fed)
Cheese toasties
jacket spud
Roast dinner (her favourite)
Steak, this evening!
Risotto
Polenta
Pasta meals (tuna etc)
Meatballs
Pizza (!)

Like I said, mini dustbin... grin

One that I often cook and freeze for both kids is macaroni cheese. Ds was such a nightmare to wean, it's a delight seeing how much dd loves her food!
