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 from Dunnes Stores Wholemeal Wraps. Any brand of tortilla you love will work, but I personally trust that Dunnes Stores foods are free of artificial ingredients, colors, chemicals, and any nasties you don’t want in your weaning baby’s lunch.
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.
This recipe is part of my Baby Food Series for Dunnes Stores. I have been so delighted to work with a client who truly believes in what I am trying to do here at Baby Led Feeding. We have so many amazing recipes coming your way over the next few months, along with lots of events, so keep your eyes peeled!
