A few weeks ago I posted an article on baby weaning just as I was getting geared up to start introducing solids to Rory. You'll be pleased to hear it's going well and he seems to really enjoy mealtimes. His favourite foods so far are sweet potato and pear.
I thought I'd take this opportunity to post a few more baby puree's, which I hope will come in handy for all you Mums and Dads out there getting ready to introduce your little one(s) to the wonderful world of food.
