Your baby should now be having a varied diet with 3 meals and healthy snacks. Full fat Cows milk can be given. Folllow on milks are also available or you can continue to breast feed!

If your baby is reluctant to have milk, ensure that he/ she has at least two servings of full fat yoghurt, cheese or milk based dishes.

Any specific topics/ difficulties related to weaning to be addressed as a new topic please!

Cauliflower and pasta cheese

50g pasta shapes
2-3 florets of cauliflower
250ml full-fat cow's milk
15g sunflower spread
15g flour
50g cheddar cheese, grated
Boil the pasta in unsalted water until tender, steaming the cauliflower over the pasta in the last few minutes. Meanwhile make a white sauce with the milk, spread and flour and, when thickened, add the cheese. Stir. Drain the pasta and cauliflower, and place in blender. Pour over the sauce and blend to a suitable consistency.

Salmon, broccoli and potato pie

1 large salmon fillet, skinned
Strip of lemon rind
250ml full-fat cow's milk
2-3 potatoes, peeled, and quartered
1 tsp butter (or margarine)
15g margarine
15g flour
2-3 large broccoli florets
Place the salmon, lemon rind and milk in a saucepan and poach for 10 minutes. Then remove the salmon, flake and place into an ovenproof dish. Strain the milk. Meanwhile boil the potatoes until tender, then mash with the teaspoon of butter and a little milk if necessary.
Melt the 15g margarine in a pan, stir in the flour and make a white sauce with the milk from the salmon. Steam the broccoli florets until tender and chop roughly. Lay over the salmon. Pour over the sauce, and top with the mashed potato. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 200ºC (gas 6).

Beef and green beans

100g fresh beef lean mince

Fry the beef without added fat in a non-stick pan until lightly browned, then add 1 tablespoon water. Cook the potatoes in a pan, steaming the beans in a sieve over them for around 8 minutes until tender. Place the beans and beef in a blender and whizz together with 1 tablespoon water until smooth.

My 2 love my Mum's chicken and baked bean casserole and so do we! It's really quick, easy and tasty

Cut up some chicken breasts, chop an onion, some mushrooms, 2 carrots (you can use as much of these or as little as you like)

Fry up the chicken in a little oil, add the onion and fry till soft. Add the carrots, mushrooms, a big tin of chopped tomatoes, some peas and a big tin of baked beans (or 2 tins if your LO's are bean mad like mine  ;))

Add 3/4 pint of chicken stock (use baby stock cubes) and bring to boil. Simmer for 20 mins and then transfer to slow cooker and cook on low for 4-6 hours. if it's a bit dry just add some more water but it's usually nice and moist

Puree, mash etc and freeze the extra portions

You can also just bung all the above ingredients in a casserole dish and cook on Gas mark 4 for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

You can also add mixed herbs if you want

This is a really lovely lamb casserole for all the family. Even though you use mint jelly it's not at all minty  ;)

Neck of lamb
2 carrots
1 large parsnip
mushrooms
peas
lamb stock mixed with 1 tablespoon mint jelly and 1 desert spoon of tomato puree
mixed herbs (optional)

Dry fry meat, add chopped onions, carrots, parsnip, mushrooms, peas and fry for a few minutes. Add stock and bring to boil. Simmer for 20 minutes and then transfer to pre heated slow cooker for 4-6 hours on Medium

Alternatively bung all prepared ingredients in a casserole dish and cook on gas mark 4 for 1 1/2 to 2 hours
