The world of weaning in a baby’s first year should be about fun, taste and colour as well as good nutrition. Right now, more than ever families across the nation are also finding that good food offers a sense of stress relief and joy too.
With trips to the supermarket more scattered, people are being inventive and creative as well as making good use of leftovers and avoiding waste. Many parents are finding solace in preparing and sharing food together with all the family. Lots are discovering hidden talents and finding that they’ve never had the time to cook quite so much.
Yet, others are quite understandably finding the opposite and have almost no time for cooking during lockdown. Time to prepare meals can be especially challenging when weaning and trying to cook and prepare foods to introduce new flavour and textures to little ones as well as keeping the rest of the family happy a real challenge.
