What's for tea?

Posted by Crab and The Fox on

As it's Saturday night, we've decided to treat ourselves to a curry.

Not just for the grown-ups, many Indian food recipes are nutritious and introduce your baby to exciting new flavours. Indian food does not have to be hot, you'll find many of the spices used are sweet, aromatic and delicious, so naturally babies love them! 

Here are a few recipes you can introduce from 7-8 months. But as always, use your discretion, you know your baby best. If your baby has a sensitive tummy you may wish to wait a little longer.

If you're looking for a curry which is baby friendly, but still in keeping with the baby-led weaning mantra of feeding them whatever you're eating, here's a recipe for a light fruity curry which isn't too spicy for baby, but is also something the whole family will enjoy.

This is the recipe we've gone with tonight. 

Be prepared, this is likely to get messy!
