Trying to figure things out!

Baby meal planning

on May 20, 2012

I am trying to figure out what meals I can make for E this week, especially now that he doesn’t seem very interested in purees (I think that it’s mostly down to his blocked nose) although he always has room for a fruit puree!  I am happy to give him more finger foods, it’s just that baby led weaning wasn’t my original plan, so I’m not fully prepared!

The foods in italics are ones that we haven’t tried yet, but had planned on trying soon.  Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated (but remember that we can’t have dairy or eggs, which can make things a bit tricky!)  We have given him fish and chicken, but not any other meat yet, I’m looking to try him on others this week.  I don’t eat meat myself, so that also makes things a bit tricky as I have no idea how long to cook things!  I am going to attempt (egg free) meatballs first I think (any tips welcome).  I love to hear about what other babies are eating, I get lots of inspiration from Moms on Twitter, so thank you 🙂
