Fun for little ones

Let little ones explore raw veggies with all their senses so that they are more familiar with them and more likely to try at mealtimes. Talk about the different shapes, textures and colours to keep your baby interested.

Top tip!

If the puree is a little thick, you can mix it with your babies’ usual milk
