Kale Pesto Recipe

Kale Pesto Recipe

If, like me, you have a veggie patch overflowing with Kale at this time of year, it's time to start thinking of some family friendly meals to use up all that goodness!  Try serving this with veggie pastas such as chickpea pasta or lentil pasta if your little one is a pasta-addict and you're looking to get more veggies into their diet.

Homemade Raspberry Jelly Recipe

While jelly is a favourite of many families, it is full of sugar, preservatives and additives. Making your own is not only cheaper, it will ensure you know exactly what’s in every mouthful your little one eats.
Steamed Christmas Kids Plum Pudding

Steamed Christmas Kids Plum Pudding

While the festive season is a great time for your baby to try new foods, dessert can be a little tricky. Between the brandy cream, custard, butter and plum pudding, which are all full of Brandy, you may wish to create an alcohol-free plum pudding suitable for toddlers and young children.
Carrot and Potato Puree Recipe
