My 3 year old has been watching, helping and cooking with me since she was a baby. Whether in a sling, a bumbo, highchair or stood on a stool she has always loved it. Mainly because she gets to eat it, and this girl is a true foodie. Given the choice of what to have for lunch she goes for things like Sushi, prawns and olives. She shuns childrens options like sausage and chips in favour of peppers stuffed with goats cheese. She also just loves to help chop, stir and get involved with mummy. So when the video camera wasn’t charged and I couldn’t work out how to get the tablet to balance somewhere and film us both I decided to just let her do the vlog. I must admit a certain level of motherly pride at this girl 😉
Miss K also loves fish fingers. Why? Because she loves fish but also because of a book we have where Charlie and Lola refer to them as “ocean niblets” from the supermarket under the sea. This book captured our imagaination around food. I don’t buy fish fingers, firstly I can’t eat them unless they are wheat free and secondly these take just minutes to make and the same time to cook so there is no need!

Recently the husband and the toddler have been have a bit of a “snack-off”. She asks for “pink biscuits”, “sweeties” and snacks that generally she knows are not for everyday eating and Daddy finds it hard to negotiate. She is a highly skilled negotiator (may get that skill from me), watch out for her later in life!
So my mummy mind leapt into action and to save the day, we made up a pile of more suitable snacks. Here is our vlog of making cheesy courgette biscuits, we made 3 batches of these and froze them in freezer bags ready to get out when needed. Written recipe here.
I’d love to hear your favourite snack ideas. Here are some more of mine.
Back in the days when I could eat wheat I loved fresh pasta. It was a quick, easy meal that delighted my taste buds. I even got given a pasta machine by my mother-in-law one Christmas so I could make my own. Typically shortly after that I found out I couldn’t eat wheat. Boo.
I’ll admit, I didn’t venture into making my own wheat free pasta until a year ago, I so wish I had played around with this earlier as it really is easy. Literally flour in a bowl, add eggs, a drizzle of oil, mix. Roll, cut and cook. So simple a toddler could do it…..
