This easy take on a classic French dish, is quick and easy to make in the Babycook, with little preparation required! While introducing your little one to delicious new flavours such as tarragon, you are ensuring you continue to build their taste palette while serving meals that are healthy and nutritious. The green stem and florets of broccoli are a great source of dietary fibre and vitamin A, K and C - and the best way to preserve all of its natural goodness is by steaming! Remember that broccoli is often left until around 8 months old to be introduced as it can cause gas for young digestive systems.
