When life gets a little hectic, quick baby meals can be a lifesaver!

For little ones that are just starting out on the weaning journey, keeping things exciting with new flavours and recipes is a great way to keep them interested as they explore food.

Our favourite quick, easy, and most importantly, tasty weaning recipes are packed with veggie goodness, designed to intrigue budding foodies and make your life in the kitchen that little bit easier. 

These recipes are great for little ones at around six months who are experiencing their first tastes. However, they can also make excellent meal options throughout the weaning journey as your baby develops through the stages - you’re sure to find some firm favourites here! 

Brussels Sprout and Pea Puree

Starting weaning with bitter veggies like sprouts can help with your little one’s taste development. Introducing less traditionally accepted vegetables like sprouts in the early stages can help your baby get accustomed to bitter tastes and can make them more likely to accept and enjoy these kinds of veggies later on. 

Our brussels sprout and pea puree is rich in vitamins and takes just 15 minutes to prepare, making it an ultimate go-to baby meal!

Sweet potato and squash make for a lovely combination; this nutritious winter vegetable-based mash can be enjoyed by all ages and can also be a brilliant option when starting to introduce new textures. 

You could begin with a completely blended puree and then start to include more lumps as your budding foodie develops.
