Elijah's mum-hoping you can give me a few hints.
1-10 month old doesn't really eat meat. He is still on mostly fork mashed good or risoni and veg sauce/risotto but lately has been eating some meat if offered as finger food. He doesn't chew yet though unless it's apple/biscuit (sonething crunchy)...any thoughts on what I can make?
2. I don't eat fish but would love bub to. What are the easiest and best things I should buy to cook for him?

Ok - I think the most nutritious and easiest to eat finger foods at ten months are homemade meats balls, fish cakes or nugget type foods - I also found at that age my DS was not a red meat fan and really it's only since he turned 3 he started choosing meat over fish
It is important at this age to introduce a variety of proteins so they get used to the flavours and don't be afraid to try things you wouldn't normally eat ( like crab and duck etc) I made a heap of different nuggets and alternated between beef mince, Turkey mince, lamb mince and fish , you can add whatever veggies you like and I used rice crumbs as a coating and binder but bread crumbs are fine just make sure they are additive free! You can shape them into more croquette shapes ( the size and shape of a mini sausage ) as it's easier to hold and he can nibble off little pieces -he will easily eat these and he needs to learn to bite and chew now so these will be great because it's a minced base there are no big chunks so easy to eat
I literally throw everything into a food processor and pulse a few times as you don't want it too smooth but not to chunky either and then either shallow fry or bake in the oven
Basic nugget/croquette recipe:
250 grams of fish or mince of your choice
( lamb,beef, Turkey, chicken,salmon, flathead,crab)
1 Grated zucchini
1 Grated carrot
1/2 cup Green peas
Table spoon Fresh parsley
Tablespoon Chia seeds
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Pulse a few times until blended then roll into desired sizes and roll again in breadcrumbs and put in fridge for 30 mins - then shallow fry in olive or coconut oil ( they freeze really well)
So he's literally getting meat and 3 veg!
With fish - salmon by far is the best and healthiest- I made salmon croquettes or I used to flake grilled salmon and put pieces on his tray or I used to add it to pasta ( throw in some fresh ricotta, peas and salmon pieces into warm pasta, splash of olive oil and mix )
As he gets older make homemade fish burgers, fish fingers ( flathead is the best for this) salmon sausage rolls , tinned tuna in sandwiches and just grilled fish and veggies plus crab is loaded with B12 so is a great red meat alternative , same with octopus!
Hope that helps!
