With the indulgence of Christmas behind us I thought it would be a good idea to get back to basics and share some foodie ideas using leftovers or food we might otherwise throw away. This recipe gave some rather sad looking bananas a new lease of life!

These porridge cups are so quick and easy to make. They’re just 2 ingredients and are perfect for serving fun little snacks. I served mine with yoghurt and fruit but you could fill with ice cream and use as a healthy alternative to cones or whatever else you can think of!

This spiced raisin porridge bread recipe came from another one of Harry and my baking mornings. We found a recipe for porridge bread in the My Fussy Eater cookbook and decided to give it a go. We’ve made a few recipes from this book now and they are all really easy and tasty. I’ll insert a video of Harry making another recipe from it at the bottom of this page. Literally recipes so easy to follow that a toddler can do it!

Megan has been weaning for a week now and she’s taken to it as well as her brother did. I had some potatoes to use up so decided to make some potato croquettes. I added a soft cheese centre to make them a little bit more exciting and both kids loved them!

It’s packed full of veggies and was a hit with our whole family.. even Alistair who is usual the fussiest!

We’ve been trying to go meat free for a day a week recently and I’ve been getting creative with tasty, ‘different’ meals that we can enjoy together. These Tex Mex bean burgers were really quick and easy to make, super tasty and perfectly filling. They may not look the most refined but the taste more than made up for it!

This was a bit of a random, make it up as we went along, tea tonight. Harry loves peanut butter and I saw some stir fry vegetables reduced in the supermarket today so decided to make some satay noodles. It was so simple and I am a huge fan of meals that can be made in one pan and mean less washing up!

- Sandwiches, Harry’s favourite fillings are: tuna and sweetcorn or cheese (I tend to grate and add grated cucumber, tomato, carrot and gherkins to make our own cheese savoury. He loves it!)

These quick and easy breakfast ideas are just a few of the foods that we serve our son for breakfast. Mostly, he likes cereal but we do like to mix it up as much as possible and give lots of variety when we can. We usually offer fruit at breakfast time too and if we every forget Harry has started asking for it now!
