    Default Can I give this to my just turned 8m old?

    Im steaming some veggies and Couscous, can I add a small amount (1tsp or so) of shredded lamb shank cooking in a sauce with salt and wine?

    I wouldn't , if the sauce had no salt or wine it would be fine but at 8 months they should be having no artificial salt and wine does not totally lose all the alcohol even when cooked (their little kidneys can't handle it well yet!) , a small bit won't hurt but i would not start bad habits - we cut out all salt and wine in cooking after DS started eating ( added salt after) - can you cook him a separate piece of lamb?

    Thanks so much, I won't. Next time I'll do a small amount plain on the side for him. At what age is it ok to add a little bit, after 12m? I never did with ds1, I was very careful what I gave him!!

    After 12 months I think it's recommended no more than 1 gram a day - even without processed food - bread, cheese, even yogurt has salt in it!

    with my DS (Will turn 2 in one week!!!) I still don't add salt at home and when we do go out for lunches/dinner I figure the little bit he gets from their food will even out as he does not get much at home

    See now personally I would. Its only a tsp mixed with the couscous and I dont think it would do much harm. But each to their own!

    I would, its not much and isn't going to set a bad eating habit after one meal. DD has the occasional slow cooked meal and I cook it how I want to eat it, just with a bit less salt. I cook wine, vinegar, salt and sugar into my bolognaise too and DD loves it.
