Do you, like Mummy struggle with adding flavour to your tots food?
We recently tried the great new range of pizzas from Little Dish, and were so pleased with how tasty and healthy they are.
We would love to share with you some Little Ideas from Little Dish on how to add flavour to your tots dishes without using salt or sugar.
Lemon juice – for a tasty twist try squeezing half a lemon over steamed broccoli or green beans. I like helping Mummy, so I can help squeeze the lemon too!
Herbs – Dried herbs are harder for us little fuss pots to notice than fresh. Try basil in a tomato sauce or soup, and chives in an omelette.
Blitz together basil, toasted pine nuts, parmesan and a little olive oil.
Spices – Make a mild curry with turmeric, cumin and coriander. Gently heat in a little oil, making sure not to burn them. Mix mild curry powder into a cheese sauce, or add a weeny pinch of chilli powder and lemon juice to mashed avocado.
Super Seeds – Sprinkle toasted pumpkin seeds onto roast vegetables, or sesame seeds onto steamed veg such as carrots.
Garlic – Gently cook crushed or very finely chopped garlic in a little olive oil to release the flavour and add to your sauces.
Tropical Twist – Slice open a vanilla pod and add the seeds to plain yoghurt then layer with mango, banana and strawberries. (This is super yummy!)
Rhubarb – steam and mix the rhubarb with lemon juice and zest, the juice of an orange and a tiny bit of grated ginger.
Apple – add soften, chopped apple with a tablespoon of water, some raisins and a little pinch of cinnamon.
Add either to a bowl of yoghurt or porridge for a healthy sweet treat.
Fruit – mix fresh berries or chopped dried figs or apricots with porridge and granola instead of adding sugar.
Do you do any of these already? Have you any other tips to add?
