We had another wonderful eating day today. It was our last post-natal yoga class, something which is very sad as we have a fantastic group. We went for lunch afterwards and Millie sat quite happily in a highchair feeding herself. She kindly shared some parsnip with her chum William who was looking to break away from the orange food. I met this group nearly a year ago when I was pregnant and now here we are with babies in highchairs - what an fantastic metamorphosis.
Millie has been eating fruit and veg for a couple of weeks now. I've been thinking about branching out and decided that today was the day. I gave her some pasta. I bought rice and millet pasta from Orgran (who make an amazing falafel mix too). Rice is a lovely first food and millet has some fantastic properties. Millet has all eight amino acids and is a good source of silicone and is suitable from six months so perfect for us. I cooked the little spirals and then rinsed in cold water once drained. They were a little sticky to the touch but absolutely fine for Millie to handle. Best of all - she loved it! Went down much better than rice cakes (coughing and face making) so will be in the menu alongside her fruit and veg from now on.
