Brekkie - Ready Brek and banana
Morning snack - rice cakes and bits of apple
Lunch - vegetable crumble and peas
afternoon snack (doesn't get usually but fell asleep during lunch so missed pudding - raisins
Tea - ratatouille and rice I think. Haven't really decided yet!

Thanks! It's pretty similar to what I am doing which is reassuring. I just feel I need to give him more variety but am a bit stuck.

Hensmum - what is your recipe for rataouille and can it be batch cooked and frozen?

HensMum Mon 22-Sep-08 12:28:45

Ratatouille
1 large aubergine
2 courgettes
1 onion
half a green pepper
half a red pepper
1 clove garlic
1 tin toms
some mixed herbs or fresh basil

Fry onions and garlic in oil, add the other veg, fry for a bit, add chopped toms and herbs and simmer until veg is cooked.
It's a nice one as you can do the veg as appropriate for your child, for example, I used to half puree it, then made the chunks bigger, then a bit bigger etc. And yes, I batch cook and freeze.

Thanks hensmum - do I have to do something to the aubergine first? and also, when I reheat it after it's been frozen, do i need to defrost it first or can I just zap it in the microwave?

HensMum Mon 22-Sep-08 16:26:07

No, I never bother. You can sprinkle the aubergine with salt to get rid of bitter juices but obviously salt and baby food do not go! As long as the aubergine is fresh it shouldn't be bitter anyway.
I always zap food in the microwave from frozen until red hot and then let cool to eating temperature.
