This stage 2 weaning recipe is wonderfully warming, perfect for the winter months!

When mashing, you can leave some bigger lumps to provide an interesting and varied texture for your little one.

For some different flavours, try swapping the butternut squash with sweet potato or parsnip. Why not experiment with a combination of lightly roasted veggies?
