Hi, is there anything along these lines that I can use in cooking (for the family so not special baby stuff)? I want to sart using my slow cooker to do food for all of us, Cassaroles, stews etc.

boots do low salt baby stock cubes, veg, chicken, beef

Even low-salt stuff is too salty for young ones. Do you want it for flavour, colour or thickening .

Can use tins of tomatoes and add herbs / garlic if your baby likes that kind of thing or add flavourings after like worcestshire sauce or salt if you want to our portions

I wanted it for flavour, nothing else.

Waitrose do Kallo lo-salt ones, they're fine for babies, so little salt will actually get into them from it. I would try just flavouring with herbs instead if you can, though.

putting herbs in at the end does wonders for flavour; good for you too!

What herbs to you usually use? I have none at home, but might write them on the shopping list

I'm not a great cook but:

thyme - beef casserole
oregano & basil - tomatoey italian sauces
bouquet garni & bay leaves - most stews

Also pepper is great to add a bit more flavour, for e.g. I add it to omelette instead of salt to make it a bit more tasty.
