I make "Pitiful Marmite" a lot:
Toast then split a wholemeal pita, spread each half with marmite, top with cheese and nuke for 40 seconds, then cut into strips.

And these really cheap and easy "wheetbix muffins":
Soak 100g crushed wheetbix, 1 cup chopped fruit (I used apple, raisins and dried apricots), 1.5 cups milk, 1/3 cup sugar overnight
In the morning add 1.25 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder and a little more milk if needed to make a muffin batter - don't overmix. Bake at 180 for 20-25 minutes.

Will try the pork muffins, we have a 13 month old who does not like to be fed (wants to do everything herself), so any finger food ideas most appreciated!

My son has alot of food allergies so I need to be really creative when making meals for him.

One of his favs is a vege pasta bake. I boil whatever veges we have in the fridge (last night was carrot, kumara and courgette) and mix in pasta and a cheese sauce. In his case it is gluten, egg and dairy free but still tastes yummy.

I also do baking one night a week, and make mini fruit muffins, rice bubble crunch, date loaf etc so he has a sweet treat every now and then.

These meatballs are really easy to make and can be frozen. Can also cook pasta and make a tomato sauce to go with them if you like :)

For 32 small meatballs

2-3 thick slices of bread or crust ends
1 medium onion
1 tsp marjoram or oregano
3/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
500g minced lamb or beef

Turn the oven to 220 degrees C. Break the bread crusts into smaller pieces and chop finely in a food processor. Add the onion and chop finely. Add the herb, salt and egg and mix briefly, then add the minced meat in 4 or 5 chunks and mix in bursts till everything is combined (over mixing toughens the meatballs) Divide mixture into quarters, eighths, sixteenths and then thirty two meatballs, rolling them with wet hands.

Bake in one layer in an uncovered pan lined with baking paper for 12 - 15 minutes or until a halved meatball is no longer pink in the middle!

You can make a tomato sauce by chopping an onion finely and cook for 5 , stir in 1 Tbl sp of flour, then add a 400g can of tomatoes in juice and 1 tsp sugar. Simmer for 5 mins, chopping or mashing tomatoes.

Ooh I'll try those meatballs!
I make shepherds pie with mince, onion, grated carrot, dried herbs, garlic and tinned tomatoes and, because ds isn't a big fan of potatoes I do mashed pumpkin, kumara and parsnip on top.

I buy all my veggies in one go and then cut them all up and put a mixture into small sandwich bags and then pop them in the freezer (uncooked). I also buy hot smoked salmon (my little boy hates meat but loves fish) cut it into small portions and also freeze it. That way I just take out a vege mix and a salmon pop them in a steam bag in the microwave and dinner is ready in just 2 mins! I blend them a wee bit too and sometime add a little olive oil or omega oil. My little boy loves it! I mix the veges with all sorts of fish and sometime sneak in some chicken but he usually knows
I like to buy organic (if I can afford it) but got sick of things going off, this way nothing does and I know my little boy is eating well. I usually buy broccoli, pumpkin, squash and spinach.
I also freeze fruit and that works well, ceres peaches are great I put a couple in a small bag and freeze them. They are great to take if you are going out and they are good frozen for teething.
I know it's not really recipe ideas but just some things that I found useful
Oh and eggy bread is a great hit for breakfast or french toast I think it's called. Just dip the bread in the egg and pop under the grill or in a pan.

Great thread idea, I must remember that I can hide swede and parsnip in mashed spud!

My little guy loves smoked fish pie.

1 can of smoked fish fillets
White sauce to mix
Veges as you like (we do peas, carrots and corn)
Boiled egg (if you wish)

Mix together until sticky and put in ramikin dishes.

Top with mashed veges (normally potato but sometimes I hide kuamara in there)

Grill in oven.

It makes plenty so sometime I freeze portions and other times we eat the rest for dinner. It works out as a very cheap meal.

I am share about some ideas Healthy and delicious recipes for babies 9 to 12 months. ... Combining broccoli with creamy mashed potato and cheese is a great baby food recipe.

Pumpkin makes a great baby food that's loaded with Vitamin A & many other important nutrients.

One cup of peas contains more protein that a tablespoon of peanut butter and also provides calcium, Vitamin A and C and Iron too.

Winter Squash is a wonderful, nutritious first food for your baby.

Some of these sound great, I usually use already made meals and meals where you just mix with milk like http://www.justfreebies.com/free-enfagrow-sample/ its really good x
