These baby led weaning recipes are perfect for babies who are six months old and beyond! Many of the recipes are finger foods, so they’re great first foods for babies and super easy for them to pick up when they’re first learning how to eat, but are also yummy for toddlers too. Keep in mind that babies aren’t just limited to finger foods though -- they can eat many of the same meals the rest of the family is eating, provided the foods are served in safe shapes and textures.
In this category, you’ll find easy and healthy baby-led weaning meal ideas in addition to breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners that the whole family can enjoy! Additionally, many of the blw recipes found below are iron-rich, contain no added sugar, are low in sodium and are rich in vitamins and minerals.
Soups can also be a great option for babies too since oftentimes the meat and vegetables are cooked until very tender so it’s easy to chew even with no teeth, and pureed soups can easily be made thicker, so it’s easier to dip toast strips into or eat with a spoon.
Some of readers’ favourite recipes for baby-led weaning include: Spinach Zucchini Frittata Fingers, Sweet Potato Quinoa Cakes, Mini Turkey Meatloaf Muffins, Healthy Zucchini Fritters and Banana Egg Pancakes
