Fried Apple and Cinnamon Pudding for Babies and Toddlers

I have to admit this wasn't my idea. I picked this up on a 'desserts' thread on a forum but it's such a good and simple idea, I thought I'd pass it on.

No Added Sugar Apple and Sultana Mini Muffins

If you're like me and often end up buying a bag of apples thinking 'maybe I'll feed them to my son' then chickening out because you once fed him apple and it ended up with a very scary choking incident, you have a lot of apples nearing the end of their life in your fruitbowl.

Kinda Vietnamese Chicken Salad for Grown Ups

I've included this here because although this is probably a complete no-go for kids; the chilli and the salt from the fish sauce makes it a very difficult sell nutritionally, however, for adults, it's actually pretty healthy (salt aside, hey, cut down tomorrow.)

Tomato and Brie Tart

Apologies for the lack of photography, my husband has taken his camera away from me.  Boo hiss.

Anyway, my son has gone from feeling off his food to eating everything you put in front of him so I felt it was time to be a bit more adventurous.

My poorly wee fella

So it's happened.  The first time.  That call from the nursery saying "we're sorry to bother you but..."
