    Default Baby Zucchini Slice

    I am wanting to make this for DS due to have a couple of zucchinis to use up. My question is though, is bacon (even the small amount for this recipe) ok for babies? DS is 10 months. Sorry if this is a silly question. Or do you have a recipe for the above that you think is a good one for infants?

    You could always omit it.

    I would use a small amount anyway, but that's just me.

    Default Baby Zucchini Slice

    I use this as a base
    http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/5546/zucchini+slice

    I leave out the bacon, add some grated carrot. I forgot the cheese and oil last time and they still turned out alright. I would add the cheese next time. You could also add peas and other veggies. Such a great base and I think it'll be a good veggie smuggler when DS is older.

    My DS is 8 months and he took to them well for a bubba who's still a newbie to the BLW game.

    I thought this but then thought how boring. Lol.

    I just know the lovely ladies of the hub are so creative with their little ones food. I thought they might have a better idea. What about cherry tomatoes? Or is that weird?

    Zucchini slice

    5 eggs ( I use organic but try free range at least)
    Glug olive oil
    2 zucchini grated
    1 carrot grated
    1/2 onion grated
    1 cup grated tasty cheese
    Corn from 1 corn cob (cooked)
    1 Tablespoon chopped chives ( or any herb)
    1 Tablespoon chia seeds
    1 cup wholemeal self raising flour ( sifted)
    Black pepper

    Mix eggs in big bowl, sift over flour, mix well and mix in the rest of the ingredients and pour into lined square cake tin or slice tin ( or muffin tins) and bake in pre heated 175 oven for 30 mins

    I've also added salmon or tin tuna for an added protein/omega 3 kick!

    This was the one I posted in the lunch box ideas thread - I have been making this for DS since he was 7 months old - we don't eat bacon or any processed meats ( nitrates and additives not good for babies!) but I used to add salmon or tuna sometimes for extra protein

    When he was a baby I used to make it in mini muffin tins - easy to hold!

    No I don't think it's weird! I would halve them and put them on top. I also like adding corn to mine as EM has suggested

    Yes, it's the nitrates I was worried about. Great recipe and I have all of that in my cupboards/fridge so too easy! Thank you!

    I've been researching nitrates as I've been interested in them. They can convert to nitrites at high heats which is the problem as they can be carcinogenic. I think as long as you don't serve bacon too often it should be ok. There are naturally occuring nitrates in fruit and veg, and our exposure to nitrates in fruit and veg is much higher than processed meats.

    Default Baby Zucchini Slice

    Yes but veggies also contain antioxidants that prevent the formation of nitrosaomines (potentially cancer causing ) and eating vegetables is not considered dangerous in the same way that eating processed foods containing nitrites is - in fact sodium nitrate (additive number 250) is banned from use in baby/infant foods

    From additive alert:

    250 : (Sodium nitrite)

    Hyperactivity, behavioural probs, asthma, headaches, dizziness, possible carcinogen. Prohibited in foods for infants and young children.


    I am over the top when it comes to additives and processed meats and I'm sure the odd piece of bacon won't hurt but I wouldn't recommend giving it to babies , there are far healthier protein sources to give at that age

    Just wanted to say I'm grateful for your recipe again EM. Every single one I googled had bacon and serving that to an infant doesn't sit right with me so Love ya work!
