As Lydia is weaning earlier than 6 months we’re starting off down the puree route rather than baby led weaning. I used the baby led weaning approach with Charlie and loved it, but I’m equally excited to do the puree approach.
There’s alot of hype over Ellas kitchen products so I thought I’d give her weaning method a go and so far I LOVE it. So easy and simple to follow, if you are part of the Boots UK parenting club you can pick up the Ella’s kitchen “a tiny taste of the First Foods Book” for free using your vouchers or the Boots app; or you can download the Ella’s kitchen “first foods” app from the app store or Google play.
- a) somewhat easier to prepare and puree
- b) much cheaper as you can buy them fresh or frozen
So far Lydia has tried every vegetable from the first tastes section and there hasn’t been any rejections (clearly has her mother’s appetite) and any purees that were left over have been popped into an ice cube tray ready to be defrosted and warmed up.
Prepping and cooking these first purees is so simple! Wash the vegetables, peel what needs peeling, chop what needs chopping into small cubes, boil for 12-15 minutes then drain and whiz into a smooth puree with a couple of tablespoons of water using a blender or hand mixer.
What were your little ones first tastes?
