The Flavour-Led Weaning Cookbook + Giveaway

When we started weaning with Erin I wanted to make sure she had a really varied diet. I am such a fussy eater myself and I will try anything to make sure Erin isn’t like this. However, the cookbooks we used were a bit boring to be honest. Purees were plain fruit and veg and there was nothing too exciting to try. I was so exited when I discovered The Flavour-Led Weaning Cookbook by Zainab Jagot Ahmed.

The Flavour-led Weaning Cookbook offers over 100 first-tastes recipes your baby will love. It will be your best-friend in the kitchen from day 1, guiding you every step of the way with expert and realistic advice, meal plans and recipes.

Flavour-led weaning uses baby-friendly herbs and spice as safe, healthy and natural flavour-boosters. It will encourage your baby to love their food from their very first taste. It will show you how to bring a rainbow of colour to your baby’s diet. And will ensure your baby gets all the nourishment they needs at every stage in their weaning journey.

Flavour-led weaning works in harmony with spoon-led and baby-led weaning. This book includes meal plans for all the weaning stages, plus delicious recipes the whole family can enjoy together.

I am going to be completely honest and say that I didn’t expect this book to be too different from the others I already have. I was so wrong though.

The book starts off with a really detailed section about weaning and what to do. There is loads of information about signs that your child may be ready and also which fake signs to look out for. This is a lot of information about different ways to wean, stages of weaning and different things to try at different stages. Something I really loved was that there was a lot of information about allergies and what to be careful with.

When it comes to the recipes there is so much choice. There are plenty of different curry options along with fish dishes and burgers, just to name a few. Zainab Jagot Ahmed uses herbs and spices in her recipes to enhance the flavours which is fantastic. The recipes are also easily adapted in case you want to miss out something or add something of your own.

What I love the most about this book is that it really does cover everything. There are the simple and more basic purees at the beginning but recipes cover family meals as well. I wish I’d been able to begin with this book but we’re having so much fun trying new and exciting recipes now.
