Recipe planner week 3

For baby (12-18 months)

Your little one is now a toddler and their appetite will have likely changed - little one's are always on the go! This means feeding small meals little and often paired with healthy and nutritious snacks. 

Why not give your little one a spoon and let them have a go at feeding themselves. Finger food and self feeding adds a whole new level of excitement for baby. 

Help your toddler develop a taste for fresh, unprocessed foods with the yummy recipes below! 


Monday - Oat, Honey and Apple Pancakes 

Yummy recipes for breastfeeding mum & baby!

Preparation: 15 minutes Cooking time: 15 minutes 


  • 2 apples 
  • 50g plain flour
  • 50g oatmeal

Crack the eggs into the blender bowl, then add the dry ingredients, the oil and the milk. Blend and leave to stand in the fridge.

Peel and finely dice the apples. Place them in the steamer basket and cook for 10 minutes. Set aside.

Heat up a frying pan until very hot. Brush the surface with a little oil and pour over a thin layer of pancake batter. When the batter starts to harden, turn it over to brown the other side. Slide the pancake onto a plate and put the pan back on to a medium heat.

Melt the knob of butter and fry a dessert spoon of the diced apple with a few drops of honey. After 2 - 3 minutes, pour the apple and honey over the pancake and serve.
