Thanks it seems so obvious now when I'm given so many ideas!
Can't wait to try these. He loves his veggies. If we have them he does too. He's chewed on roast lamb and beef and loved that. I just can never think of anything that sounds nice lol
I did know about honey lol I hate it so we barely ever have it unless it's used for cooking.
We have jewfish (mulloway) fillets. Would that be ok if I flaked them? I'd need to flake them ALOT to ensure there aren't bones. Or if I buy the fish you've mentioned are they more likely to have no bones?
Like I said not a big fish eater lol my limit is tuna in a can lol
I think the jewfish fillets would be great. I just usually pan fry in some olive oil and a bit of butter and chuck in a bit of crushed garlic, whatever herbs I have on hand a squeeze of lemon and then just flake.
Awesome! I'll do that my FIL (who catches them n gives us some) makes them baked in foil with lemon, orange, grated carrot and some herbs. That's the only way I eat them lol. I'm assuming cooked like that would be ok for DS?
Just be careful with those little corn cobettes, once all the corn is off the con is the right size to choke on. We only know because DS1 managed to put one in his mouth at the pub one night.
Fish is a great food for kids - we aim for 2-3 serves a week
Flathead tails are great for fish fingers - I just crumb with either quinoa or rice crumbs, chia seeds and herbs and bake in the oven
Salmon is a perfect fish for kids ( high in omegas) just steam it grill it and flake off little pieces for babies or just boneless fillets for toddlers and add it to cooked pasta or mince it for fish cakes or salmon sausage rolls - crab is very high in b12 so a great food for kids - crab cakes are easy, crab burgers are one if DS fav dinners!
For my "nuggets" I throw into a food processor;
Chicken or turkey breast or tuna
Quinoa or rice crumbs ( enough just to make mixture a bit drier)
Roll into whatever shape you like, roll in crumbs to coat and either bake or shallow fry in olive oil - I gave these to DS from 7 months and they freeze really well
