Once your baby is comfortable eating red meat, around 6 months, you can begin preparing meals for your baby from the main meal. Meals need to be bland for your baby, but flavours can be 'revved' up at the end of cooking for the rest of the family, as indicated in this recipe.

How long would it take to cook in slow cooker... and would there be any other adjustments required i.e. less water???

Very handy, almost 1 step recipe that appeals to our whole family. A tasty way to introduce swedes too. The crunchy potato slices and baked beans go down a treat. However, it's a bit odd that the tomato paste is left our for the under 8 months, while the baked beans stay in.

As a general rule of thumb reduce the amount of liquid by 1 cup for the slow cooker. Enjoy!
