* Serving size will vary depending on your baby's age and appetite.  Each baby is unique and some days they will eat more than other days. 
  • You may find it useful to cook a larger batch of pureed meals, such as this one, then freeze in small portions to use later. Purees can be frozen in an ice cube tray. When solid, transfer to a plastic bag, seal and return to freezer.

Adapting the Family Meal

  • Once your baby is comfortable eating red meat, you can begin preparing meals for your baby from the family 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 some of the recipes in this section.
