Cod, Pea and Green Apple with Coconut Milk


My little baby M is nearly 8 months old and I’ve been weaning her since she was 5 months. First thing I started her on was carrot. She absolutely loved it. Then tried fruit – she was ok,  I kept trucking and she was fine with simple veggie and fruit. When I start with proteins she wasn’t so keen. Soon after I tried her on baby led weaning and she got really frustrated that the food wasn’t actually going into her stomach – she was just getting the taste but not the calories so I think I’ll still keep going with a combination of both.

Here’s the routine I implement (since we start with 3 meals) if it’s helpful to anyone:

Breastfeeding at 7am
Breakfast between 8am – 9am (food)
Sleep at 10am
Lunch at 12.00 (food)
Sleep at 1.30 to 2.30pm
Breastfeeding 3pm
Dinner at 5pm (food)
Bath at 5.45pm
Breastfeeding at 6.15pm
Bed at 6:45pm
We get 12 hours sleep, some nights she wakes up, all part of babyhood 😉

Today I made this cod, pea and green apple with coconut milk (recipe below).

  4. Once the fish starting to crispy flip the fish and continue to cook the fish 4-5 minutes.
