Okay so this isnt my recipe but wanted to share with you all as Ruby loves it!

Apple, Pear & Vanilla puree

Ingredients:
2 dessert apples, peeled, cored and chopped
2 ripe pears, peeled cored and chopped
4 tbsp unsweetened apple juice or water
1 vanilla pod

Method:
Put the fruit into a heavy-based saucepan together with the apple juice or water. Split the vanilla pod, scrape the seeds into the pan and throw in the split vanilla pod. Cover and cook over a low heat until tender (about 6 minutes). Remove the vanilla pod and blend the fruit to a smooth puree.

The best thing I could tell everyone to buy to make a lot of their recipes in is the Lakeland microwave pot!!! They are about £3 and you can stew all your fruit and veg in the micro with water in them almost like steaming and it takes half the time and mess than a pot on the stove takes Very Happy

FIRST FOODS(from 17wks+)

Baby rice is a good first food, mixed with a little breastmilk, formula or water.
Try 1-2 tsp a day first and increase if you feel your baby is ready.
After 2-3days of rice you could start to introduce fruit and veg.
Root veg..such as:
swede
parsnip
carrot
potato or sweet potato
butternut squash

also..
apple
pear
banana (not suitable for freezing)
papaya
Start by introducing one flavour such as parsnip and after a few days add a little carrot and so on. Also don't be afraid of mixing the fruit and veg together Smile Also adding breastmilk/formula makes them that bit creamer Very Happy
(little tip..apple and pear worked wonders for Ollie's bowels..so beware Laughing )

FROM ABOUT 5mth+

You could start to introduce..
Cabbage
sweetcorn
peas
broccoli & cauliflower

also..plums
apricots & peaches
melon
mango

FROM 6mth+

You can kinda go all-out.. Very Happy

You can start to introduce lean meats, chicken, lentils, pasta etc..cheese (chedder/edam/cottage cheese)
Cereals such as weetabix, porriage and ready-brek

But still avoid:
Nuts
Honey
Soft cheese..ie, Brie
Added salt/sugar

Weaning can be very daunting..I was pooing myself that i'd be doing something wrong. Go at your babies own pace, and if s/he doesn't appear to like a food at first..try again in a week or so..it can take a few attempts for them to get used to new tastes and textures. Just remember to have fun and make lots of mess Laughing If you have any questions or concerns at all talk to your HV or weaning nurse (if you have one in your area)

GOOD LUCK Wink
And feel free to add your babies recommended recipes (weather they are your own or not) or hints and tips.

Posted in another post but thought i'd add it to this one Very Happy
Its an Annabel Karmel Recipe and Oliver loves it Very Happy

Its a good source of protein and iron.

LOVELY LENTILS

1/2 small onion finely chopped
4oz carrot chopped (i used frozen)
1/2oz celery chopped
1 tblspoon of veg oil
2oz split red lentils
7oz sweet potato (I added mine seperate [when serving it to Ollie] cos I already had a bag full of cubes)
14fl oz of veg stock..less if your adding your sweet potato seperate.

Saute the onion, carrot and celery in the oil for 5 mins or until soft.
Add the lentils and sweet potato and pour over the stock. Bring to the boil, turn down heat and simmer for 20 mins.
Then puree in a blender to the consistancy you want. I did mine quite lumpy as i'm moving Ollie onto stage 2.

One of Izzys favourites puds is cooked and mashed apple with cinnamon (which you can freeze) - then add mashed up banana to it fresh at the time of feeding Very Happy
Its nice warmed up a bit.

You cant freeze banana or keep it long mashed up as it goes horrible!
