Swiftly after your baby has mastered those single first taste fruits and veggies you can start to combine flavours and mash or chop rather than pureeing for an early introduction to texture!

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the leek, apple and chicken. Fry for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the parsnip, sweet potato and stock. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Add the kale and simmer for 5 minutes. Blend or chop to a chunky consistency.


Suitable from 6 months +
