There are lots of ideas and recipes out there - and I have a stack on my website as well - but we all have our go to’s so have a read below - I hope your Bub loves them as much as Harper.



Our number 1 go to would have to be porridge.  I stack a whole lot of nutrients in there so it’s not only great for her but yummy and filling. 

Harper’s has

  • Oats - full of fibre, iron, B vitamins for immune health, magnesium, and lots of antioxidants,
  • Full cream A2 milk - great source of Calcium, protein and potassium
  • Banana - full of potassium to help out body function, Vitamin C and B6, and Fibre
  • Flaxseeds - great source of fibre and healthy fats
  • Chia seeds - full of fibre and loads of minerals
  • Peanut butter - great source of protein, healthy fats, magnesium and antioxidants
  • Berries to top - which are super rich in vitamins  especially vitamin C and magnesium





Our little Harper has never been a huge lunch fan - she’s more of a grazer around lunch time so my best meal idea for her lunch is usually a little smogasbord.  Best served in baby luno’s plate with divider.  Sometimes I give her a slice of bread as well - but it’s not usually necessary if she eats most of this. 

Harper usually has

  • Diced avocado - full of healthy fats, vitamin C, folate an potassium (more than a banana)
  • Sweet corn kernels - high in vitamin C (and really just super fun to eat one at a time…..)
  • Roasted pumpkin - packed with fibre and vitamin A (great for eyesight and immune system)
  • Smoked Salmon - great source of protein, omega 3 fatty acids

Other things you can add on there - white beans, boiled eggs, cheese slices, baby corn spears, roasted sweet potato, roast chicken, asparagus spears, steamed broccoli florettes, cherry tomatoes (cut in half) quinoa, baked beans



This is a hard one as she loves dinner time - anything from risotto, to stews, to another smorgasbord or just fish and veggies she’ll basically smash anything I give her which is fab. Her favourite would have to be a pasta dish though.  The great thing about pasta is that you can pack it full of veges, they can eat it with their hands and you can make a stack and freeze it so it’s on call for those nights you’re not sure what to do.

Harpers faves would be

  • Salmon and vege pasta bake
  • Spaghetti bolognese
  • And although there’s not a huge amount of nutrients in it by itself - Mac & Cheese is a fab treat.  To get some vege in there you can always roast some pumpkin and blend it in with the cheese sauce before adding to the macaroni



Once you have a baby snacks become life - especially if you’re out and about or traveling.  If I thought my husband got hangry - that’s nothing compared to a hungry baby.

Harper’s faves would have to be:

  • Boiled eggs - full of protein
  • Banana pancakes
  • Greek Yoghurt pouches full of calcium and protein (not flavoured - there’s loads of sugar with flavoured yoghurt)
  • Bananas
  • Oat flapjacks
  • Cheese
  • Berries or other fruit - just be careful with fruit intake as it is high in sugar
  • Baby Corn spears
