This is a recipe for my My Favourite Vegan Burger – sneaking vegetables into a burger is a good option for children who are super fussy and profess to hate veggies. Watch them munch these vegan burgers up in blissful ignorance. Instead of using egg as binder in the burger mixture, I use chia seeds soaked in water. If your kids tuck into these brilliant burgers, next you can try my Tasty Tofu and Vegetable Burgers!

The king of all breakfasts! A bowl of porridge makes for a great start to the day, and will give you and your baby long-lasting reserves of energy thanks to the slow release of complex carbs. For this Almond Milk Porridge with Berries, sweetening it with fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup gives it extra appeal. Babies should continue with breast milk or infant formula as their main milk supply for the first year. However, you can use other milks like whole cow’s milk or dairy free options such as almond milk with cereal from six months. For more porridge inspiration, try this Porridge with Apple, Pear and Raisins and my Purple Porridge
