 Haddock with Spinach and Potatoes Baby Meal
Haddock, spinach and potatoes baby meal

Fish is an important part of any diet. However, in younger children it is wise not to give fish too often – once or twice a week is a great start to ensuring your child grows up to like fish!

Avoid feeding a child under the age of one year oily fish such as tuna as this contains high levels of naturally found mercury.

Steaming spinach,haddock and potatoes

Firstly, as always, ensure that ALL cooking equipment and work surfaces are scrupulously clean. Peel and roughly chop the potato. The size of the cuts doesn’t matter as it will all be pureed or mashed once cooked.
Wash the spinach. I tend to steam all fruit and vegetables and steaming fish is a great way of preserving all the goodness and flavour.

Arrange the ingredients in your steamer or alternatively, you can boil the vegetables and bake the fish in tin foil in the oven for approximately 20 (or until the fish flakes easily with a fork).


  

Once cooked, place the ingredients into a blender and whizz until the desired consistency is achieved. To create a more textured dish, I have chosen to lightly puree the haddock and spinach together and then mash the potato. (you may like to add a little butter).


  
Next, mix the spinach and haddock puree together with the mashed potato. I added a small amount of cooled, boiled water at this point to lessen the consistency slightly as it was quite thick.

Finally, when you are happy that the correct texture and consistency has been achieved, spoon the mix into clean freezer trays.

Allow to cool before freezing. After freezing, ensure the food is piping hot throughout, then cool to a suitable temperature for your baby to eat. You may also like to add a little of your child's usual milk before serving.
