Top 10 baby-led weaning recipes

Once your baby has got to grips with those first finger foods when baby-led weaning, it’s important to continue to introduce a wide variety of healthy foods, flavours and textures early on.  And here are 10 of Annabel’s most popular baby-led weaning recipes with young families.

Remember, baby-led weaning doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing method.  You can choose to feed your baby soft finger foods and small portions of family meals alongside spoon-feeding purees. The important thing is that both you and your baby feel content and comfortable in your routine.

For lots more ideas, Annabel’s Baby-Led Weaning Recipe Book is great, whether you’re exclusively baby-led weaning or looking for food ideas to feed alongside purees.
