Baby weaning recipes: Around 6 months

Simple, single veggies, like carrots, peas or broccoli are the ideal first foods for your baby. Once your little one is comfortable eating single veggies, you can start to mix things up a bit and introduce fruits and other vegetables too. It’s probably a bit early for offering your little one breakfast, dinner and lunch just yet. For now just offer food once or twice a day, and don’t worry if they don’t eat too much to begin with.

The Department of Health recommends weaning at around 6 months. Before introducing any of these yummy recipes it’s important to check that your baby’s ready.

All the recipes below are suitable for babies from around 6 months. If you haven’t already, read up on how to prepare and store baby food safely before you get started.


Smooth purées (roughly the consistency of double cream) are great for helping your little one master the art of swallowing solid foods. These simple veggie purées are easy to prepare and can be frozen in ice cube trays to use later in the week. Don't add any salt or sugar - these purées are great as they are. And be sure to let any cooked food cool down before offering it to your baby.

Moving on...

Once your baby’s getting to grips with veggies, as long as you stick to single flavours, you can turn almost any fruit or veg into a baby-friendly purée. Start with smooth purées and increase the thickness gradually.

Do not leave your little one unattended when eating and drinking
