    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?

    Yeah I'd say its added mainly for the salt content - I would try the celery, carrot, onion , garlic mix then add a bay leaf and either some other herbs like parsley or rosemary add some sea or pink salt to your portion after the kids have been served if it's lacking salt - I add pink or sea salt to our food now but not when DS was a baby - oh and ditch the marg - mash is so much better with real butter!

    Just chiming in to say I'm another who used baby led weaning...however due to my children's allergies I couldn't just give them everything we ate because I did have to stick to the 'one new thing every three days' rule so that if they had a reaction we knew exactly what it was.
    It was easy enough though...starting off by giving them steamed veggies, and if we had meat I'd just cook some up separate for them so it was plain, or take some out before adding sauces etc. I still have to do stuff like that now so that wasn't a big deal!
    I did spoon feed yoghurt and soups because I couldn't handle the mess...but finger food from the get go for us.

    DS would eat cloves of roasted garlic at 8 months. Great for dipping too!

    DD has always has garlic, onions etc in her food but it's been probably just the last month that she has started eating our food (10 months)
    For our food, it's the salt that I'm hesitant to give her, not the other ingredients

Quick, easy and she loves them.
    That is a great snack idea for anyone. Thanks!
