It’s not uncommon for us all to meal plan. Many of us do it weekly or fortnightly and pride ourselves on the way it keeps us organised.
But what happens when there’s a little person to feed as well?
It can be a very overwhelming time, especially when you’re a new parent.
I remember when my twins were babies, I relied on the information on baby food jars to work out what to feed them and when. I did plenty of guessing and sometimes….. without any success at all (see picture).But as we move more and more in to a ‘preservative & additive’ aware society, it has become much more common for parents to make and freeze their own baby food at home.
And for good reason, have you ever tasted tinned baby food??
Most of us have mooshed up a banana, pureed an apple and mashed spuds and pumpkin together but if you’re anything like me and lacking inspiration in the kitchen, then do I have the recipe book for you….
Introducing Kim McCosker’s latest release, BABY BOWL.
If you’re thinking that name sounds a little familiar, it’s because Kim was a co-author of those amazing 4 ingredients books that we all love!!!
So you can imagine my excitement when this package arrived in the post. As I flick through the pages, I instantly became aware that this wasn’t just your run-of-the-mill cook book.
Kim has covered every aspect of introducing your baby to solids, and has even followed it through into toddler territory. It is very much like a hand-book that ought to be given to mum’s at their babies birth!!
* 1st 4 weeks meal plans
* Topics such as Allergies, Hygiene & Reflux
* Baby food storage
* Age categories and many more.
Now I know my babies are a little past the ‘baby food’ stage, but there are plenty of recipes in BABY BOWL that can be used for the older Monsters as well.
So we’ve given one of the recipes a go, to see just how easy and yum it can be.
Now….. The moment you’ve all been waiting for:
