    Thanks Elijah's Mum! Do you have any recipes for Spag Bol without all the nasties? I always use the dolmio jars with tin tomato and tomato soup. I put in veggies too but I'd say there is lots of crap in there!

    Yes - stay away from jars!
    The only thing I use that's not fresh is mutti Italian tomato paste - no preservatives - I do put pink salt in but when DS was under 2 I only added it after his portion was taken out :

    Ingredients:
    1 brown onion chopped finely
    1 carrot chopped finely
    1 stick celery chopped finely
    4 garlic gloves crushed
    2 squirts tomato paste
    About 3 cups chopped ripe tomatoes with juice ( or 2 tins )
    1/2 Bunch fresh basil
    1/2 Bunch fresh oregano
    500g beef mince ( grass fed preferred)
    Steamed Broccoli and raw baby spinach leaves
    Parmesan cheese
    Olive oil

    Heat oil in big pan, fry onions/carrot/celery until soft, add garlic and mince and tomato paste and fry until meat is brown, add chopped tomatoes , half the chopped herbs, black pepper and cook on a low heat for at least an hour - before serving stir through other half of chopped herbs, chopped broccoli and a few handfuls of baby spinach and a big handful of grated parmesan

    Also a really quick I have no food prepared just for my baby dinner is just boil some pasta and toss through some ricotta cheese , baby spinach and cooked peas

    Way to much salt and has yeast extract which is a type of MSG and really no health benefits - the best toppings for toast are avocado or nut butters that are 100.% nuts - macadamia nut or almond butters are yum!

    Yes but read the labels and only buy the 100% nut ones ( health food isle is your best bet) the big commercial ones add salt and preservatives and vegetable oils
