The theme of “babytastes“ is to go back to basics by using raw, fresh and unprocessed ingredients in easy-to-follow recipes.
Babies need to develop their tastes by eating natural, flavoursome foods. Even adding small amounts of salt, sugar or artificial flavourings to their food may lead to fussy eating and a preference for processed, saltier and sweeter foods in childhood and adulthood. We know unhealthy diets can lead to heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
