Thanks Elijah's Mum! Do you have any recipes for Spag Bol without all the nasties? I always use the dolmio jars with tin tomato and tomato soup. I put in veggies too but I'd say there is lots of crap in there!

Yes - stay away from jars!
The only thing I use that's not fresh is mutti Italian tomato paste - no preservatives - I do put pink salt in but when DS was under 2 I only added it after his portion was taken out :
1 brown onion chopped finely
1 carrot chopped finely
1 stick celery chopped finely
4 garlic gloves crushed
2 squirts tomato paste
About 3 cups chopped ripe tomatoes with juice ( or 2 tins )
1/2 Bunch fresh basil
1/2 Bunch fresh oregano
500g beef mince ( grass fed preferred)
Steamed Broccoli and raw baby spinach leaves
Heat oil in big pan, fry onions/carrot/celery until soft, add garlic and mince and tomato paste and fry until meat is brown, add chopped tomatoes , half the chopped herbs, black pepper and cook on a low heat for at least an hour - before serving stir through other half of chopped herbs, chopped broccoli and a few handfuls of baby spinach and a big handful of grated parmesan
Also a really quick I have no food prepared just for my baby dinner is just boil some pasta and toss through some ricotta cheese , baby spinach and cooked peas

Quick Q. So vegemite is a no go? DH is keen to hav bubs eat vegemite toast at some stage but im not keen. For one i dont eat it myself and too much salt?

Way to much salt and has yeast extract which is a type of MSG and really no health benefits - the best toppings for toast are avocado or nut butters that are 100.% nuts - macadamia nut or almond butters are yum!

Are but butters from the supermarket?

I meant nut!! Lol! Autocorrect

Yes but read the labels and only buy the 100% nut ones ( health food isle is your best bet) the big commercial ones add salt and preservatives and vegetable oils
