Of course you want your baby to tuck in and enjoy Christmas dinner, but be careful about which elements you choose to introduce her to at this stage.
Yes, she might enjoy the pigs in blankets (really, who doesn’t?), but a couple of treats like these will use up most of her salt allowance for the day (babies and toddlers shouldn’t have more than 1g salt a day) so go easy!
