Christmas Finger Vegetables

With so many winter vegetables around, its worth saying you can start your baby on finger food from 6 months and you can actually totally skip the mushing, pureeing, and head straight onto ‘big people’ food. So, roast those Christmas veggies until they are lovely and soft, steam broccoli, slow cook meat until really tender. I like to cut all of my veggies into spears. It makes the food super easy to handle. Please remember you MUST be able to squash a food between your finger and thumb to ensure it is 100% safe for your baby.

1. Cranberry and Orange Christmas Muffins.

For baby led weaning muffins are just brilliant! They can be made well ahead of time and the best part is that they freeze. So make lots, freeze and the night before you (or Santa Claus) wants to eat them you can remove from the freezer to defrost. We like ours a little warm so heat in the oven for about 5 minutes at 180ºC.
