Fishcakes that are prefect for baby-led weaning, have hidden green veggies and are still tasty enough for the rest of the family to enjoy? Sign me up! These baby friendly fishcakes are a great, healthy way for everyone to eat together at dinner-time.
If you want to find out more about baby-led weaning in general – there is a video and lots of info right here… we are big BLW advocates here. When you are ready to move on to finger foods, this is the perfect recipe for you. I’d serve this from around seven months, after we’d tried lots of yummy friut and veg! The salmon is a source of omega 3 which is good for little developing brains and it has a whole load of veg in there including spinach, sweet potato and broccoli. Yum.
When I made these, I used three different sizes – baby, toddler and grown up. To make just baby friendly fishcakes, you’d probably double your yield. They are freezable, so you can make a big batch and just defrost as and when you need.
So on to that recipe. Here you go!
Baby Friendly Fishcakes
The great thing about baby friendly fishcakes or, well any of my recipes really, is that they are whole family friendly…We try hard to only make one meal for everyone in our house. There are, obviously some alterations such as the fact I sprinkle ours with salt. I wouldn’t add salt to my toddlers food and certainly never for under 1’s.
I served three to my toddler (which was probably too many, turns out) and he did pretty well with them.
All that veg in his dinner – something he’d never eat on it’s own now. Hurrah. Love a good before and after pic!
