    What EM said. It's very easy to start cooking food from scratch. I'm not sure why you would put chicken noodle soup into shepherds pie tbh. Once you get into the swing of things it's easy.

    Tho my kids flat out refuse to eat white potato in any form. Sweet potato they will eat but not potato. So I make cauliflower mash instead.

    How funny - the only food DS won't eat is potato! Never has - in any form! I thought he was the only kid that wouldn't eat potatoes!

    I cook from whole foods as much as possible - that way I know exactly what is in it. The only thing I don't have time for is making my own stock, so I buy the salt reduced version and often add less or water it down.

    I have actually become a much more creative cook since trying to cook as "cleanly" (I.e. Minimal preservatives, etc) as possible as it means I cook everything from scratch so if something has a lot of chilli which we don't like, I can decrease it. Whereas before when I was buying jars of sauce, I would often avoid curries and anything that mentioned chilli just in case it was too hot for our liking.

    Like the others, I started using herbs, spices, garlic and onion right from 6 months. I'm a garlic and paprika lover and my 18 month old is too! If you get them used to these flavours early, they'll never know any different. The only difficulty with having a kid who eats anything is that you often have to buy an adults meal at a restaurant if you want them to eat a decent meal as kids menus are so disgusting!

    I'm another one who has fed bubba our food since he started solids. I stopped adding salt when cooking but cooked from scratch anyway so it wasn't a big deal. I do make up batches of risotto with heaps of veggies and grains/ seeds like quinoa, barley, chia and freeze in cubes which I send to daycare and also have the inlaws give it to bub if they watch him.

    You'd be amazed by the flavours they can handle - my 11 month old guy eats curry, spicy tuna sushi, lemon, olive tapenade...

    Flavour... It's a recipe that's been handed down. What would you suggest?

    Do you put the soup mix in with the meat or the potato??? I usually just make a bolognaise type sauce with a lot of veggies grated through it, then make mash to top it and bake a bit...ive never really used a soup mix or anything.

    What other ingredients are there in the recipe? Packet soup would be added for flavouring id say? You could add chopped celery, garlic , pepper, carrot, bay leaf, parsley and a homemade or additive free veggie or chicken stock?
