  • reema_alyamaniStock and butter are unhealthy and I have realized that alot of your recipes contain these two ingredients.
  • shushumushu@reema_alyamani I'm not sure what you have read but stock and butter are both pretty good for babies and adults?
  • clairembear24@emmatiger18 xx
  • bensavva3love it!
  • reema_alyamani@shushumushu most of the stock sold is high in salt and butter is high in saturated fat!
  • shushumushu@reema_alyamani Some saturated fat isn't necessarily a bad thing especially for babies & brain development. If you read what she has written above it says unsalted stock.
  • mrsbrookeDo you mean add the potatoe and sautée after the leek?
  • reema_alyamaniWhere I live it is difficult to find unsalted stock. I always prefer to use water instead.I agree with you that some saturated fat isnt bad but butter is very high in saturated fat. I would prefer olive oil, its healthier@shushumushu
  • annabelkarmelI use unsalted stock and I have a simple recipe to make your own . You could always use water if you prefer . Babies grow more rapidly in their first year than at any other time in their life and they need proportionately more fat in their diet than adults so adding a little butter is fine @reema_alyamni @shushumshu
  • annabelkarmelYes you add the potatoes once you have sautéed the leek @mrsbrooke
  • annabelkarmelIt is 15g butter so a small amount but absolutely fine to use olive oil or rapeseed oil @reema_alyamani
  • mrsbrookeThankyou
  • loullysAs cow milk isn't recommended for babies under 1 year should it be replaced with formula?
  • clairelouiseaboMy little one loves this recipe 🎀
  • the_skinny_kitchenWe are now open in BELFAST!
  • alilfc82A massive hit in my house! Thank goodness there is some more left! I made some changes as we are dairy free but still delicious!
  • adriannacosta👏👏👏👏
  • lozdozxThis is my favourite recipe and a staple for our household. Freezes perfectly, although i do add freshly cooked spinach each time.
  • annabelkarmelYou can use cow's milk in cooking from 6 months but you should continue with formula or breast milk as your baby's main drink @loullys
  • rsmyth1982@annabelkarmel hello, would it be ok to use frozen white fish defrosted in this? Thanks
