Baby – Fish Cakes

These tasty little fish cakes were a firm favorite in my house when I was at the weaning stage.

Serves 8-10.

Tip! These fish cakes are a great way to introduce omega-3 and vitamin D-rich salmon into your baby’s diet!

Butternut Squash and Red Pepper Soup

This is one of my favourite soups that I discovered while I was pregnant. I’ve been making it ever since.

Aileen Regan, Dietitian, Medical Director, Danone Baby Nutrition

Serves 6

Tip! Ideal for freezing! This will come in useful for those nights when you want something fast!

Baby – Easy Peasy Homemade Hummus

“Hummus is perfect to use as a dip for small pieces of fresh fruit and vegetables, or as a spread instead of butter. Infants love the savoury fresh taste and it’s a great way to encourage them to self-feed which develops their hand and eye co-ordination and feeding autonomy.”

Ruth Charles, Paediatric Dietician, Westmeath

Serves 12, suitable from 6 months on;

Tip! Why not set aside some of this mixture for the adults in the family and spice things up by blending in some chopped red chilli if you dare!


Baby – Icy Strawberry Cream

“Cool and soothing for teething gums and my kids still love it for a summer treat”

Cara Cunningham, Senior Community Dietician, Westmeath

Tip! Why not change things up by using different flavoured fromage frais and different types of fruit?
