For Older Kids and Baby Led Weaning Recipes
For older kids you could easily stir this through some pasta or bake it in the oven with rice underneath and cheese on top! Mix it with egg and flour to make savoury muffins, or blend it with straight egg to make a savoury pancake! You could also cut the fish into fingers and coat it in breadcrumbs and egg then bake them! For baby led weaning the chicken and the pumpkin would be well cooked and offered in bigger pieces from 6-9mths (about the size of 2 adult fingers). In our home we did this as well as spooning in the puree version of the recipe (using our Little Mashies distractor cutlery). We would also have big fingers of food served on our Little Mashies platter plate.
From 9mths in baby led weaning you chop the pieces into tiny sizes (way smaller than whats in this recipe image). The image here represents a baby led weaning recipe from about the age of 12mths. The chicken and pumpkin are cut into bite sizes. We still puree green vegetables sometimes (even for older kids) as it means they eat more! But it's good to offer variety and give older babies (12-24mths) un-pureed green vegetables as well. From about 18th mths in baby led weaning recipes you can offer the chicken and pumpkin in larger grabbing/ holding sized pieces again. This is so your little one has the opportunity to learn how to take their own smaller bites!
Why is fish a great baby food choice?
Fish is absolutely great food to provide your baby complete protein. It contains all amino acids and an amazing source of pure Omega 3s. It contains wonderful healthy nutrients important for growing baby. Try to buy sustainably caught fish if you can!

So easy to fill, clean and re use! Thank you :)

These are the 2nd brand of reusable food pouches I have tried and I prefer these ones. I love that they are easy to clean because of the no corners. The colours and designs are also cool.

Little mashies pouches are easy, colourful and fun! We've tried a couple of other brands before but little mashies is the best so far. Very easy to put purées in, and our bub just loves the colours.
