Baby’s First Christmas Tastes!


Starting to wean your baby can be a confusing time and the festive season can be a  flavour overload! It is important to give baby a good experience as they try new tastes and textures, there are plenty of Christmas treats to excite their developing sense of taste. We have worked with The Happy Kitchen Food Company to create some weaning recipes packed with festive flavours for your little one to try.

Festive Veggie Balls


1 small onion, chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
4 stalks of flat leaf or curly parsley
4 slices of bread
1  apple, unpeeled and chopped

Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees

Blitz the bread in a food processor to make bread crumbs and put to one side.

Put the remaining ingredients into the food processor and blend until smooth, mix this with the bread crumbs and add a little breast or formula milk if needed.
Shape the mixture into walnut size balls and pop on a buttered baking sheet or on baking paper and bake for approximately 20 mins.

These are a perfect finger food accompaniment to our Christmas Lunch recipe ( see next post!) and are also delicious dipped into a homemade tomato and vegetable sauce.

Doidy Weaning is on hand to support both traditional and baby-led weaning as you introduce new tastes and flavours carefully in the early stages, providing your little one with a nutritious and pleasurable start. The Doidy Bowl is designed to help develop motor skills, with a slanted high lip on one side to allow infants to scoop food up and load more easily onto a spoon, making it perfect for Christmas finger foods and purees.   With its super-suction base  Doidy Bowl stays firmly in place minimising messy spills at the Christmas dinner table!
