  • 200 ml/7 fl oz baby’s usual milk (plus extra if needed)
  • 25 g/1 oz risotto rice
  • ½ teaspoon mixed spice
  • 1 ripe pear, peeled, cored and chopped



  1. Pour the milk into a small saucepan and stir in the rice. Bring the milk almost to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover with a lid and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until the rice starts to soften.
  2. Add the mixed spice and pear, stir well and continue to cook, covered, for 15 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent the rice sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  3. Using the back of a fork, mash the rice pudding until almost smooth, adding a little extra milk if necessary. Alternatively, purée in a food processor or using a hand blender.

Swap This For That

Swap pears for mango, peach, apple or banana. Tinned + frozen fruit are also great options!

Handy Tips

Give your little one cooked pear fingers or sticks of soft fruit to help them learn to feed themselves
