My son has turned into a fusspot. It was bound to happen and all kids go through these stages. It can be difficult to get anything into him which is good for his bowels if that makes sense! Sorry to get all graphic! He has a "I don't like that" moment on a daily basis nowadays but as I've said before many times on my blog and on forums; the only sure way to have a fussy child is to stop offering foods.
That said, sometimes we all need a change and it livens up our jaded palates to have something new. So here is a recipe for some cheese biscuits. Definitely great for toddlers but because the texture is reasonably soft, like a cross between a biscuit and a scone, they might also work for babies who are on finger foods. Just be guided by your child and obviously stay with them when eating.
Cheese Biscuits - Makes approx 12
60g Extra mature or vintage (extra sharp) cheddar, grated
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
75g wholemeal self raising flour (or wholemeal biscuit flour with 1 tsp baking powder)
40g Crushed shreddies
Preheat the oven to 180oC / 350F / Gas Mark 5.
Grate the cheese and add to a food processor with the butter, paprika, flour and shreddies. Process the ingredients together then add the egg. The mix should now be slightly sticky.
Roll into walnut sized balls and squish down a bit. Place onto a greased baking tray.
Bake for 15 mins at 180oC. Cool on a wire rack. Once cool keep in an airtight box for a day or so.
