Cod and Vegetable Pie - Mini turkey burgers

From 6 months of age

Baby food recipes containing poultry and fish still have a mild flavour and are an ideal way to introduce some protein into your baby's diet from around 6-7 months of age.

Baby's teeth will start to come through around this time, so you can begin to introduce foods with a little texture in them, so that he can learn to chew.

You will probably find that Baby likes to join you at mealtimes, and cries if he doesn't get some of what you are eating!

Here are some simple gluten free baby food recipes that you might like to prepare for your little one.
