Apricot, Banana And Cinnamon Porridge

Apricots are extremely nutrient rich fruit for baby food. They are rich in beta carotene, vitamin C and lycopene and have the high level of iron. They act as a gentle laxative and also help in brain development. Apricots provide great flavour to otherwise bland dishes and are absolutely delicious mixed with yoghurt for breakfast, or chicken for dinner. Have you tried baking apricots before you puree them into babyfood? If not then I really suggest you give it a go... the whole family will love it!

Apricots can be used in so many different ways! I’ve created 4 recipe books that contain apricots. If you are a new parent though you can get my first book in downloadable format absolutely free by going to http://littlemashies.com.au/free It is full of baby food ideas and has over 50 recipes from the initial phase of starting pureed solids, right through to meal ideas for older babies. When you sign up we will send you an email asking to confirm you are not a robot (yep we do get a lot of spam you wouldn’t believe some of the bots out there these days!)… anyway as soon as you confirm you are a human being my Baby Food ebook (valued at $9.95) will be sent straight to you in digital format so you can just save it or print it off to use when you need new ideas.
