To celebrate Weaning Week, iCandy has teamed up with Tommee Tippee to bring you and your little one a delicious and nutritional recipe using the Quick Cook Baby Food Maker.
The Tommee Tippee Quick Cook Baby Food Maker is perfect for parents entering the world of weaning. Suitable for fruit, vegetables, meat and fish, you can steam in the steamer basket, blend in the jug, or combine both for a range of textures, from smooth purées to chunky meals.

The Tommee Tippee Parent Room is full of weaning resources, including top tips on when and how to start introducing textured baby food:
Strange as it may seem, they don’t need to have teeth to chew textured baby food….it’s amazing what those little gums can do!
Where possible, it is now fun to try and include your baby when the rest of the family is eating, so that mealtimes become a social occasion. Most babies are ready for this around 7 months but be guided by your baby before you start introducing textured baby food.
What’s on the menu?
You can still give them the same food you have been pureeing but try adding less liquid or mashing instead of blending so that they still get the taste of banana or carrot that they love but with a coarser texture.
You can now introduce much more variety for example;
- Mashed up lean meat or poultry
- Mashed lentils or chick peas
- Full fat milk products, such as cottage cheese or yogurt
- Mashed up white (e.g. cod) or oily (e.g. fresh salmon) fish
- Well-cooked eggs
