food

Hi all
Juat a quickie, what do you guys do re meat...A loves all his food but struggling to find things to go with say the sweet potato chips he loves ( boiled then roasted in olive oil ) We've bought roast chicken before and he loved that but cooking a chicken breast every day is a bit excessive and too much for him I feel. Prob is a pack of ready roasted chicken would last him 2 weeks, but you need to use it up asap after it's opened and we end up chucking it...any tips would be fab.
Going to save some beef from today's lunch in the freezer.

Also how much do your LO's eat. I think Alex eats loads ?( but if you offer a snack he'll tear your arm off so I'm worried he's hungry. He has a lovely pot belly now but is super skinny everywhere else so Dh is worried he's got malnutrition :rolleyes:.

Daytime typically he'll have
7.30am bottle 8oz
8am Banana and slice toast with dairylea
No midmorning snack ( usually sleeping ) although like today cos he was awake he had a babybel
12pm Usually a stage 2 Jar or a sandwich, yoghurt and fruit ( say handful blueberries, 6 grapes chopped ) today he's having roast beef dinner :P
3pm a biscuit or more fruit, he loves theose organix carrot fingers so I'll normally give him 3
5pm tea pasta with passata and cheese, more fruit or a pudding like a fruit wobbler
7pm bottle - anything from 4-7oz

does that sound too much or too little?

Thanks in advance ladies xx

Buy a couple of chicken breasts and make chicken nuggets that can be frozen and dished out as you need. There is a realy good recipe for them on the annabel karmel website which involves soaking them in buttermilk to keep them lovely and tender. They are a hit in the house with kids and grown ups alike.

That sounds great.... * goes off to check *

A's only got his bottom teeth thru, although top ones are nearly there. Will he be able to eat them?

They are pretty soft. But if you think they might be too much you could always buy chicken mince and make little patties with seasoning or herbs which he would be able to manage a bit better?

We try and give him what we're having most evening times, makes it easier for us :innocent:
So if we have say salmon and veggies, then so does he.

we make batches of food, and buy lots of 4oz container freezer jars, and blend the batches to a soft consistency, then at food time one of us will just go into the freezer and either grab a pot of "fruit' or a pot "fish slop" or a pot of "spag bog" etc......

I reckon if you cook once, why not cook enough for a couple of weeks?!

I've stopped adding stock cubes to bolognaise so I can freeze it for Moll. There seems to be no limit to the amount of bolognaise she will eat! I do the same with chilli, and then spice it up a bit for us. I will definitely try those chicken nuggets.

Just used a triangle of laughing cow to make a cheesy sauce for some spaghetti Plum had - it went down a treat with some fresh peas and a bit of parmesan on top. Really quick and only one pot to wash.

Lovin' the tips - will have to try those chicken nuggets.

I cook a chicken breast then grate it with a cheese grater and freeze individual portions to add to their meals as & when. E loves cous cous with chicken, avocardo and chopped tomato!

Its the best quick meal. The peas were pod fresh so when I took the pasta off the heat and threw them straight in and put the lid on while I melted the laughing cow. Then when I drained the pasta the peas were perfect, still with bite and sweetness but warm. Mix it with the cheese and bingo bango happy baby :happy:

We've had a really successful eating day today with the pair of them so am feeling quite pleased with myself. Made this for Pud and she blummin wolfed it down:

Green lentils (squashed with the back of the wooden spoon) sauted in butter with finely chopped coriander and parsley. Mixed that with a little baby rice and some parmesan. She gobbled it up and then did a huge poo and fell to sleep :snigger:

Lovely...wonder what colour the poo'll be tomorrow :snigger:

A eats much more when he can pick things up - the baby led weaning suits him much better. When he has more mushy things he likes to feed himself, which is very messy. Of course difficult to find things meat wise that he can chew with 2 teeth ( 8)bless )

We're making homemade beef burgers tomorrow so doing A some too, with bread and butter.

Bless, A won't eat off a spoon unless he is holding one too. He doesn't do anything with it just holds it. Saying that he can feed himself very well, for about 4 spoons then loses interest.

Banana is the dog's in this house :snigger:

My 2 love stuffed mini Pitta pizzas, pop under grill for 1 min then cut a little slice in to make a pocket, stuff with grated cheese chopped toms, spring onion then whack under grill for it all to melt together then cut into fingers. They also enjoy this all melted onto toast.

As for meat dishes I make a big lasagne for us and they enjoy that with Garlic Bread, in fact anything bolagnasey that turns their eyebrows orange when it is smeared over their face is a hit! Fish pie with Veggies also goes down well x

Its not about the time, its about the temperature, you must be very careful with it obviously.
