Hi Ladies, I’m looking for some food ideas or recipes for my ten month old that could also feed my 9-year old (if that’s even possible). I’m looking to find recipes that are suitable for the whole family, that I can change up the portion sizes to suit both of my children. I find that I rely on pouches a lot to feed my baby but want to start cooking more and adding more variety and textures to his diet. I’ve started trialing some parts of baby led weaning but am unsure of where to go from here on. Any ideas?

Ask your question

  • Quiche, zucchini slice, meatballs (beef, turkey, chicken), pasta bolognaise, rice/risotto, soup



  • Lots of cut up pieces of fruit and let them choose. Lots of steamed veggies, rice and pasta, potatoes and canned beans (the plain ones). Keep it simple but nutritious.



  • Pretty much a ten month old can be eating what everyone else is eating. Just minimise added sugar and salt and keep an eye on spices. And cut their food into smaller portions.



  • My 10 month old eats whatever we eat. She has done since she started solids. For breakfast she might have toast and fruit or kids weetbix. For lunch she might have dinner leftovers, sandwich, wrap, toastie, etc. For dinner we have a wide variety of meals such as curry, pasta dishes, rice dishes, fish, chicken, beef. At 10 months they can eat anything except honey. I also don’t add salt when cooking.

    When out and about I pack a lunchbox with fruit, sandwich, cheese, and homemade sugar free muffins.



  • I make my Son Rissottos and rice dishes. He loves them and the whole family can also enjoy. sometimes I add a meat or cjicken on the side for Hubby to make it more substantial. I also freeze the extras in portions for my son. Try a pumpkin or mushroom rissotto, fried rice is a good one as can add alot of vegies.
