10 Thermomix Baby Food Recipes Your Baby Will Love

Posted:

As a mum, your child’s nutrition is always a priority. When your youngster is ready to start eating solids (from about four to six months onwards), It’s important to make meals that give them all the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development.

Choosing the right baby food, however, can be daunting for new mums – especially those of us not quite at home in the kitchen! The good news is you don’t have to be a kitchen maven to be able to whip up tasty, nutritious baby food in a flash.

All the recipes that involve breast milk can be substituted with other types of milk, including cow’s milk, soya milk or almond milk.
