Yummy in my Tummy Mackerel Spread with Tortilla Dippers

Recipe By

One thing I’ve learned as a mother is that my children will eat almost anything that comes as a dip or spread. Another thing I’ve learned is that I should take full advantage of this at every opportunity. This mackerel spread is a perfectly scrumptious baby led weaning lunch that’s packed to the brim with heart and brain healthy omega 3s. It also doubles as an easy after school snack for your bigger kids!

I serve this baby-led spread with fresh veggies, as well as tortilla strips made using Wholemeal Wraps. You can also use regular wraps but I personally like the wholemeal ones.

Dips are a perfect way to get picky eaters to eat nutritious foods. #fingerfood #babyledweaninglunch #babyledweaning #babyledfeeding #omega3

To top it off, this recipe is incredibly simple to prepare. If you have ten extra minutes, you’ve got time to make this dish part of your weekly…spread. 😉 You’ll want to debone the mackerel thoroughly after it’s baked to make sure baby doesn’t hit a snag gobbling it down. Other than that, all you need is an oven and a blender or food processor to reach smooth perfection and a healthy baby led weaning lunch your family will adore.
