Ask a question Recipes for Baby Food

Hi Nishaji,

I live in London and sometimes i really find it very difficult to cook for my 1 year old baby., Samaj hi nahi ata kya banaye. London's weather is very unpredictable. specially in winter it becomes very difficult as I am pure vegetarian and Jain (dont eat root vegetables)

can you please add some recipes for  babies and toddlers?

Thanks and regards,

      I can understand what you are going through. Try to feed your baby pureed food, and finger foods. Puree the vegetables at home and mix cinnamon or cardamom. Give baby potato fries and boiled vegetables with little salt and little black pepper (if your baby likes spice).  Dairy products, like yogurt (flavoured yogurt or plain yogurt). Dice the grapes, pears. Any fruit which is soft just dice it and peel the skin because it gets difficult for a baby to eat with the skin. 

      I know feeding a toddler is not easy. Just try different combinations and you will do just fine. Good luck.

        How about Halwa's - Atta or Sooji - use milk instead of water - wud be more healthy for ur kid. It!! You can prepare soft vermicilly - roast vermicilly and add water into it (jus about 1 cup). Add sugar n keep stirring till it is done. This is a soft and healthy diet for kids - but feed warm food - good in winters.

        You can try Parle-G kind of biscuits - add them in bit of warm milk and bit of sugar - mix well - it shud be like halwa consistency. You can try this - my kid liked it so much n again take healthy biscuits. Try soft aloo ka parantha's with some ghee over it...

              Payal, thinking of Desi Ghee. You can also make churi for your kid (make chapati and then add lots of desi ghee and sugar and keep kneading it, eventually it will become like a ball). This has good content desi ghee which will keep your baby satisfied for longer but I guess too much fat is not good. After eating too much desi ghee babies ignore other essential / nutritious foods. So don't feed churi daily. 

              This is just my opinion. Will write more later....

                some suggestions for toddler food -

                1. pressure cook moong dal-chawal kichadi, mash it add ghee, salt, bhuna jeera powder

                2. to this khichadi some times add spinach or carrot or green beans or lauki/kaddu or beets to make it different taste and healthy

                3.  roast whole wheat flour in lots of ghee and keep it.  whenenver needed just take some roasted flour and add water and cook and then add sugar.    the halwa can thick or thin per baby's liking

                4.  steamed idlis cut in small pieces with ghee

                5.  upma with little watery consistency

                6.  paratha soaked in toor or moong daal  and then mashed

                7.  paratha soaked in milk / soymilk then mashed and sugar/salt to taste

                8.  cooked rice mashaed with sugar, shee, ilaichi and milk - make it like a kheer

                9.  mixed vegetable soup - like lauki, gajar, pspinach, beans, cabbage, tomato, beets  - pressure cook.  Mash with hand blender, strain add jeer powder-salt and give in sipper cup

                10.  cooked and mashed aapples.   mashed bananas , mango etc

                11.  ragi flour/juwar flour raab

                I found hand blender very useful to mash babyfood. 

                good luck.
