My Baby Led Weaning Recipes

Welcome to my Baby Led Weaning Recipe section. Having found that once my children were ready to start eating solids they were also ready to feed themselves I mostly let them get on with it.

While for the most part what they eat is no different from what we are eating I’ve always taken care that they are getting delicious food that is suitable for babies.

I cook from scratch, I don’t add salt and I minimise my use of added sugar. It’s not a baby menu but it is baby friendly.

While I prepare food myself I’m also very lazy so many of my recipes keep well in the freezer or stored in an air-tight container ensuring a ready supply of tasty meals and snacks without me slaving over the stove at every meal.

Alongside recipes I will post about my thoughts and experiences surrounding baby led weaning. You can find out more on my about baby led weaning page.

I will be adding recipes gradually and if you subscribe you will have the latest recipes in your inbox or RSS reader.

    Kat – just saw the video over on Bambino Goodies. DIVINE. You have got me a little bit inspired about the whole baby led weaning thing (third time round – shocking to be interested in a new way??!) But tell me honestly – does it take a lot of patience? I have about the patience of an impatient lion….

      Thank you Kate, your opinion means a lot to me. To be honest I think you can make it as easy or as hard as you want to. Starting off I just stem a pot of veg sticks once a day and get them out for the baby when the other two are having meals. If you have time to stress when you have three children at the table I bow down to you because I can barely think :) I think the original study which brought the method to prominence had lots of anecdotal evidence that subsequent (not first) children were more often weaned this way from watching siblings and the sake of ease so perhaps you are being more conventional than you think? Of course I secretly hope it provides some classic ODYTM material…

        Time to stress?! Time to stress? Kat – I could stress for England/Australia in any sort of weather, but i’m still inspired. Right – I’m off to obsessively google the topic and download all your recipe ideas. x

          I am expecting a spread-sheet on the subject…
