Providing your baby with a varied diet and introducing lots of different types of foods when he's weaning will help him to enjoy a varied diet later on in life.
An easy way to sneak veg onto your tot's plate, Little Dish have added two tasty new veggie options to their Finger Food range, Mini Veg Frittatas and Mini Veg Bites. Packed with veg, they are 100 per cent natural with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives plus low salt and no added sugar.
Both are ready-to-eat so they make a quick and easy addition to a playdate platter, nutritious picnic partner or savoury lunchbox filler.
"This new range from Little Dish is vegetarian, so it will suit even more little ones' needs," says Dietitian & Mum Lucy Jones (MRES BSC Hons RD MBDA). "They can be served with wholegrains, pulses and salad or veg for a quick, nutritious meal or eaten alone as an on-the-go healthy snack."
