Seasoning for Babies

Seasoning for Babies

We all love a bit of seasoning added to our homemade creations, whether it be salt, pepper, garlic, citrus zest, nutmeg etc. Otherwise to put it bluntly the food can taste a little bit on the bland side.

When should we add seasoning to our baby’s food is a question often asked by weaning parents all over the world. Which is why we’ve created this blog, in the hope to help you add a little bit of zest to that pureed chicken dish.

Aromatic Seasoning

Aromatic seasoning can be added to your babies food from as young as 6 months old. Cinnamon, ginger, coriander, mint and cumin are great to start with and are packed full of flavour.

Cinnamon

Can be added to sweet or savoury dishes and has a warm, sweet, spicy flavour to it. Tastes great added to apple puree, sweet potato puree and porridge and stews.

Cumin

Pairs well with meat and vegetables by adding a nutty, peppery, earthy flavour. Try adding it to carrot puree, cauliflower puree or lamb and chicken stews.

Mint

Is aromatic and fresh and works well with both sweet and savoury purees. Mint works well with more or less all vegetables such as potatoes, tomatoes, carrots and peas.

Rosemary

Can be one of the stronger tasting herbs so only use a little but adds a lovely flavour to purees, even sweet baked ones.

Basil

A favorite seasoning with many and is actually one of the primary ingredients in pesto. Can be pureed on it’s own to create a fragrant, healthy sauce for both you and baby.
