Baby led weaning fish cakes with avocado and mint yogurt dip. This is a perfect baby lunch recipe packed with Omega-3 rich fish and full of vitamins. Lunch ideas for baby led weaning. BLW lunch recipe.

Oily fish is an important part of your babies diet as it is high in protein, vitamins and minerals but more importantly because it contains a high amount of omega-3 fatty acids.

These little fish cakes from the newly released Baby Led Feeding Cookbook are an ideal way to introduce your baby to fish. They are really soft, full of nutritious goodness and the perfect shape for those little hands. Oscar has been eating these since he was only 6 months old and he loves them! Although sometimes these days he proclaims ‘I no like salmon’ until I say just try and then he’s back munching away like normal.

My top tip with this recipe is to make a triple batch, cook them and freeze into freezer bags. They are so great for busy days when you want a healthy meal for your baby or to bring along when you are out and about as they hold their shape so little or no mess (obviously without the sauce).
