6 BABY-FRIENDLY RECIPES FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

Cooking can become a dreaded chore when you have to come up with two separate meals for your baby and the rest of the family. Let us ease your burden with these 5 family-friendly recipes − simply set aside a portion and puree it for the little one. Bonus: Most of these recipes are one-pot meals, so they really are all you would need to feed the entire family.

1. Kiwi Mango Porridge



A light and healthy meal that is perfect for breakfast, cook this recipe in a Thermos® Shuttle Chef®, and set aside portions in Thermos® Food Jars for your family to enjoy on-the-go. It’s also a convenient way to allow the rice to soften further for the baby while you go about your morning chores. For a richer option, substitute water with milk.

This timeless classic is a fuss-free dinner option for those rainy nights when you crave something cosy. Instead of using a blender to prep the baby’s share, mash the ingredients with a fork to minimise cleaning. Control the amount of sodium your baby is consuming by using a homemade vegetable broth as the stock base.

Packed with wholesome veggies, this one-pan pasta dish is a great way to cut down on washing. Worried about your baby having too much salt? Cook his pasta separately in unsalted water, or simply add less salt to the dish and offer grated cheese at the table for the grown-ups.

4. Chicken Lomi

This version of the beloved comfort food has a lighter soup base and omits any seafood or seafood products, which may pose as allergy risks for babies. Leave out the liver for younger kids and make sure you blend their portion sufficiently as the thicker noodle strands can be hard to digest.

5. No-Fuss Shepherd’s Pie

Lamb has a low fat content and is a source of several essential minerals, making it a great protein option for the family. This abridged recipe only requires 15 minutes of prep before the dish finishes off in the oven. For the baby, blend a serving of the filling and stir in the mash by hand to avoid clogging the blender.

6. Potato and Spare Ribs Stew Rice

Similar to the popular Cantonese-style claypot rice, this recipe is homely yet satisfying, thanks to the addition of umami-boosting oyster sauce. For the tot, pick out the meat from the ribs and blend the dish with some hot broth or water until you get a porridge-like consistency. Let the Thermos® Shuttle Chef® do the cooking while you whip up a quick veggie dish to complete the meal.
