Quick and easy but so healthy dinner!

Steamed broccoli and peas with spinach and pasta.

Blend broccoli and add milk to make the right consistence. Pour boiling water over spinach and blend it with broccoli. Add peas and pasta to the mixture so you get nice texture for you baby to explore (my baby is 8months old and doesn’t like everything to be mashup) . You can add as much of each veg as you want.




3 types of pancakes : Pancakes with strawberries, pancakes with apples, pancakes with banana.

So easy to make: follow a recipie for normal pancakes without adding sugar or salt (1 egg, 1 cup of flower, 1 cup of milk). Prepare fruits which you want to use.

Dice fruits in to small cubes. Apples need to be cooked before using in pancakes. Put fruits in to separate bowls and divide pancakes mixture between. Ready to fry 😁

Great as a breakfast, snack or a treat. You can freeze it in wrapped in a clean film.


How did you find weaning your baby? Was it really exciting? OH YES, was it lots of fun? OH YES, was it making you really proud of your baby? OH YES, was it confusing ? HELL YES!!!

 What did I found confusing ? 

-With what food should I start weaning ?

-How much food should I be giving and how much milk?

-How often should I introduce new food?

-When should I increase solid food from one meal to two?

-Should I give water to my baby?

Guess what? there is as many opinions as there is about sleeping,bringing up babies,ways of parenting ect ! I had no idea what is the right way to do it and it was affecting how excited I was about starting Chloe on her food. 


 There is a lot of different opinions: Baby rice, baby porridge, fruits  (for example:Apple,Bannana or Pear), Vegetable (for exapmple Carrot, Sweet potato).

 I have reed lots about it and have found so many different opinions about it. I decided to go with NHS guidance (which by the way isn’t clear at all) which says that you can start on any of the above 😊. My plan was to start with baby rice then go in to porridge then a fruits and vegetables. 

I found baby rice a total waste of money and time. The whole idea of weaning is to introduce new textures and flavours, baby rice is very watery and doesn’t have any flavour! 

After trying baby rice once I moved in to strawberry porridge which Chloe enjoyed very much and then to very simple vegetable and fruit purΓ©e . I started on fruits and vegetables pretty much straight away.


 When I reed about weaning it said that baby will eat a one spoonful of food on the beginning….. Not true! Chloe started with eating round 3 tbsp of food. I bought those cute cubes to store her food and haven’t used it because the portion was way to small. I let Chloe decide how much she wanted, I would feed her till she didn’t want it. Trust me your baby will let you know when it has had enough. 

 In my baby cook book next to each recipe it says how many portions will be made; this was very helpful, especially in the very beginning .

 When it comes to milk I have kept all of Chloe’s milk feeds and introduced solid food in between her milk. 


 As with everything there is a lot of different informations. Some say that you should give baby one food for a week, some say you should do it for 3 days and some that you should be trying new things daily. I went with the last approach and started giving Chloe lots of different foods. 

First week was very basic : Apple, Carrot, Porridge, Pear, Sweet Potatoe, Bannana. Second week I started doing a very simple mixes of fruits and vegetables :Apple & Pear, Bannana & Avocado , Apple & Parsnip, Sweet Potato & Carrot, Carrot & Buternat. On week 3 I started to give Chloe different vegetables (Broccoli, Corn, Peas, Spinach) and fruits (Strawberry, Mango, Blueberries). Week 4 which we just started I started introducing chicken and more complex meals, it’s now more of a grown up food 😊


 We have started on 3 tbsp per 1 time a day for a 2 weeks. Then we started on 2 meals a day for a week. In week 3 I started to give Chloe her meal fallowed by desert (4tbsp of vegetables, 3tbsp of the desert). 

 Again it’s pretty impossible to find any information about what you should do. I decided to fallow a meal plan from my baby cooking book (which I very much recommend) and monitor how much Chloe wanted to eat.


 Again it’s not very clear. Some information says that you should start introducing free flow baby cup and give water. Other say that baby gets enough water from the breast milk. Ideal solution seems like giving milk in the cup 😁. Seems like a bit of water won’t do any harm. Just remember that water needs to boiled and cooled. 

 It is very confusing if you are a new parent to know what is the best way to wean baby but it is so so so much fun and I am enjoying it so much ! 

WEANING – I am so so so excited !!!Β 

The day has come to start my little precious baby on solid food 😁 she will be only 5 months old but she is definitely more than ready for it (her mummy as well 😊). I know that the advice is to wait till 6 months but we will try and see how Chloe react to it. On the paper she is ready : she holds herself very well,she always stares at our food and tries  to grab it. 


 We decided to start on baby rice as it’s the most similar to milk and shouldn’t be too shocking for Chloe πŸ™‚ 

I was like a little kid in a sweet shop when u was buying baby rice and baby porridge! I am so excited about it ! 

 You need to make sure you choos a time when she is awake and happie so that’s what we did. Straight after getting up we played a little bit and then started on outr first meal. I also have given Chloe her milk first and then the baby rice. 

All of the cameras ready, camcorder in hand and off we went 


 I was expecting lots of spitting, food everywhere, mess … Non of it happened ! Chloe loved it ! She was opening her mouth and trying her best to eat of the spoon ! She ate almost everything !!! 

I was so proud of her and so surprised ! She obviously has a apettite after her mum 😊 it’s pretty incredible seeing her eating something else than my milk . I still cannot believe how well she did !!!

  Weaning is really exciting, but I also find it quite confusing. When to start on vegetables and fruits, when on meat?how much milk to give? When to move from one meal to two? What about drinking wather ? I will need to seat and revise very carefully:-) 

For now though I am looking forward to tomorrow 😁 we will be trying baby porridge 😊
