Lucas is mainly eating the same as D and I now but he does still have the occasional jar of baby food. When we started the weaning process, I tried to make as much of his food as possible from scratch but sometimes I wouldn’t have time or I wanted something different for him as making batches of food meant he had a lot of the same food in the freezer.

KiddieCubes

KiddieCubes* sent Lucas some food to try. I hadn’t heard of them before and I wish I had known about 6 months ago. KiddieCubes have created 14 dishes using organic ingredients that are gently cooked before being frozen to lock in their goodness. The idea is tasty, nutrional home cooked meals that are ready from frozen in 90 seconds.

KiddieCubes

They have a stage 1 and stage 2 range. One cube is the equivalent to one tablespoon so you are in control of portion size and have less wastage.

STAGE 1
Eat Your Greens – Spinach, Broccoli, Courgette, Pea
Really Rooty Veg – Sweet Potato, Carrot, Swede
Purely Apple and Pear Puree
Purely Mango and Apple Puree
Purely Peach and Pear Puree
Purely Apple, Blueberry and Apricot Puree

STAGE 2
Veggies and Lovely Lentils – Lentils, Butternut, Swede, Parsnip, Celery
Cauliflower and Broccoli Cheese – Cauliflower, Broccoli, Cheese, Milk
Hearty Chicken and Veg Hotpot – Chicken, Celery, Carrot, Broccoli
Very Veggie Lamb Casserole – Lamb, Parsnip, Sweet potato, Sweet corn
Creamy Leafy Fisherman’s Pie – Salmon, Cod, potato, pea, spinach, milk

BREAKFASTS (STAGE 2)
Creamy Porridge
Go Bananas Porridge

KiddieCubes

Lucas tried the Creamy Leafy Fisherman’s Pie, Very Veggie Lamb Casserole and Hearty Chicken and Veg Hotpot. He loved all of them, especially the fisherman’s pie. They are so easy to get ready, literally pop the cubes in the microwave from the freezer and away you go. However, I couldn’t use them on a day out so the food pouches are still my favourites for then and for stage 2 food, I expected them to be a thicker consistency with more lumps for chewing.

KiddieCubes

KiddieCubes are available from Ocado and Waitrose. They retail between £3.49-£4.29 per bag of 12 cubes but are currently on offer at Ocado with a 1/3 off x

    That looks really lovely! I don’t think (at least I’m not aware) that they sold anything like that when T was a baby. A close friend just recently started hers with solids, will recommend this to her 🙂

    Mine are to old now for something like this and we made our own but it is a briliant idea, especially to have on hand if something has happened, as it does and you havent had time to prepare dinner!

    This is really interesting. I wish we’d had something like that when our youngsters were weaning.

    I have been really surprised by baby food. I made my own with my eldest but my youngest had a lot of jars. I felt guilty until I read the ingredients. Then I felt stupid for wasting so much time pureeing for myself!

    This was news to me 🙂 I couldn’t imagine that you can buy this in the shop. I guess you never check baby food when you don’t have one 🙂

    What a great idea – wasting baby food used to frustrate me

    These look such a great idea for weaning! My mummy used to freeze little cubes but this is all done for you!
