  • Hi, I’ve got a 2.5 year old little boy and never been told that mushrooms aren’t appropriate. I think anything natural is fine for a baby to eat xx

  • Just made it today for my 8 months old baby. Can’t wait to serve it tomorrow :) I replaced the butter with olive oil because I suspected a cow’s milk allergy on her (not yet diagnosed and omitted the mushrooms (not sure they are age appropriate).
