I’ve noticed that between 9 and 12 months, the quantity and variety of foods Mia eats really begins to grow. More than ever now I’m trying each meal to contain carbohydrate, proteins, a fat component such as olive oil or little cube of unsalted butter, vegetables and fruits. This is very important for your baby’s healthy diet.
Today we made Baby Chicken Casserole (recipe below).
2 baby topped carrots
2 miniature new potatoes
1 small salad onions chopped
1 little gem lettuce heart, halved
50g fresh/frozen peas
1tbsp creme fraiche
2tsp fresh/dry parsley
200-250ml of water
*makes 3-4 portions
*suitable for freezing
*suitable from 10 months
*Prep time 10 minutes
*Cooking 20-25 minutes
Heat oil in saucepan (ideally non-stick one) add onions, gently stirring for 3 minutes.
Add chicken stirring until browned all over.
Add baby carrots and potatoes pour over water.
Bring to the boil, stir (for about 15 minutes) reduce heat and add lettuce and peas, simmer gently for about 5 minutes until peas are tender and chicken is cooked through with no pink meat.

Cool for about 15 minutes than puree in food processor or place in bowl and use hand blender.
