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* 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.
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.

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.
