I wrote here about all weaning a baby…ah how green I was. This time around I barely have the time to eat my own dinner, let alone prep, steam, puree & freeze all the variety of fruit and veg I wanted to wean George on…2nd baby syndrome much?!
Obviously I still wanted to give him all the nutrients from a varied, natural diet as well as the experience of tasting new flavours but the luxury of time I had the first time around is now a distant memory…Enter Kiddie Cubes.
I was so pleased when they got in touch with us, mainly because I could lose the Mummy guilt of not having the time to puree up all that veg, all that mess! Plus when you already have one child point-blank refusing everything you put in front of them the last thing you need is your youngest child declining anything you give them after hours of prep!!
The idea behind it is simple…genius. Home cooked fruit and veg, 100% organic and natural, no added sugar or additives, frozen straight away to lock in the goodness into ice cube sized portions ready to microwave in just 90 seconds – all prepared with love.
There are 14 recipes currently, available at Ocado & Asda, meaning you can even order these from the comfort of your sofa. No guilt for not sourcing, cooking, blending, freezing, storing all that organic goodness you want your new baby to be tasting snd testing, and getting used to at an early age. Winning.
Just remember feeding a 6 month old who is intent on grabbing at the spoon to shove into their mouth themselves and flipping the bowl into the air during fits of excitement is a messy job; wipe clean floors and preferably a naked baby are the way forward.
