from 6 months for all of them if there are no allergies. Re: wholemeal bread - it is advised not to give a fully wholemeal diet till the age of 5 so a mix of white and wholemeal bread, pasta, rice is advised.
I just this week tried my LO on tuna. Made a cheese sauce a la the lovely Anabelle and mixed in some tuna flakes and some brocolli. DS seemed to love it, but he is always a hungry baby and this actually satisfied him so it must be v. filling for them so be carefull.
Have stayed off wholemeal bread for now as keep reading warnings about too much fibre in their diet, but have given egg a few times now. I have done: scramled egg with toast squares (definite finger food), pancakes (in strips - stuffs them in) and omlette/frittata thing with grated vege or cheese and tomatoe (again - finger food).
My DS is 8.5mo but I think we presented scrambled eggs a few times before he took to it (just had it off my plate to start with, and I put salt on afterwards). If you are keen for him to have it, then re-present later.
If you have the anabelle Karmel books (don't mean to rave) there is a recipe for yoghurt pancakes which DS devoured yesterday (the pancakes, not the recipe!).
Didn't want to give my DS mayo yet as raw eggs risky, and shop bought stuff full of crap. Mum keeps raving about tinned pilchards/salmon in tomato sauce in a sandwich/on toast? She also raves about mash potatoe with a raw egg, but apparently she used to sneek raw eggs into everything we ate this way, bless (?!).
You could just steam some salmon and give it to him. Is he OK with finger food? Oooh, this sounds good actually. Might try it myself tomorrow!
I would love to make those yogurt pancakes if anybody has the recipe?
Eggs, make sure they are cooked well obviously. So no runny egg. My mum keeps telling me to give DD a runny egg and soldiers but I am not risking it.. Apparently we all ate loads of it when we were babies
not sure on the rules but can't remember where I got this recipe from either, I know it off by heart :
150ml milk 150ml yoghurt 150g SR flour 1 egg pinch of salt OR maple syrup (we used later).
Mix it all well (use wizzy machine) and dolop a tblspoon full into non-stick frying plan (with little oil in bottom). Should be able to get three in a small egg pan. Flip - but be warned they cook quick.
They are quite thick and a good size but I did cut them up a bit and shoved some fruit puree on for DS (we had maple syrup on ours - yum scrum).
Chloe - my mum used to mix a raw egg in my milkshakes - from 6m to 16yrs!!! But she also confees she gave my sister tea in her bottle during the day from 7m (?!)
