Lots of baby led weaning, toddler, kid and family friendly friendly recipes and ideas ideas for the busy parent, most ready in around 15-20 minutes!

So far, our family of four has a diary-ladder climber, dairy free and gluten free requirements, tips, tricks and hacks on how to cope with multiple food allergies in one house.

Peanut Butter Brownies – Vegan and Flourless

Not just for the kids, these peanut butter brownies are also a delicious adult treat!! Flourless, dairy free, soya free and egg free this brownie is definitely not taste free!!! Made with peanut butter and bananas, there isn’t an avocado or black bean in sight. Delicious and gooey you’ll wonder how you ever survived without it!!

Chocolate Party Cake – adapted from Kitchen Simplicty

Chocolate party cake & vanilla butter icing, adapted from Kitchen Simplicty’s original recipe. Perfectly tall (massive) 3 layer 8 inch cakes for any celebration!

The INCREDIBLE Hulk Spinach & Mango Smoothie

Get 2 of your baby or toddler’s five-a-day into them by telling them it’s a ‘Hulk’ smoothie…We like to use frozen spinach florets, and if you freeze the mango chunks it really does make a delicious dessert. I like to serve in a bowl like a ‘yoghurt’ or ‘mousse’ but you could always make it runnier and serve in a reusable baby food pouch or in a glass as a smoothie!

Ella’s Kitchen Full of Sunshine Green Thai Curry Meatballs

Green Curry Meat Balls is super easy and the Ella’s Kitchen Full of Sunshine Green Thai Curry is a quick and easy packet sauce, packed full of veg!

Hummus, Spring Onion & Tuna Patties

We still love these Easy Hummus Fish Cakes – today we didn’t have any coriander, because we used it up in yesterday’s Black Pepper, Ginger & Garlic Stir Fry, we did however have left over spring onions – that’s the awesome thing about these hummus patties, you can just pop in whatever you have!

Baby Led Weaning Banana, Apple & Cinnamon Muffins

We go through a tonne of Ella’s Kitchen and Organix snacks in our house, whilst very good, the cost does add up when you are liberally dishing them out as bribery! I stumbled on a Skinny Chocolate Fudge Muffin, which could easily be adapted for baby led weaning!
