Potentially Perilous Pork Products

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

Potentially Perilous Pork Products

OK, sensible level-headed ladies... is there any reason not to give a 13-month-old:
a) black pudding? Thoroughly cooked of course;
b) scotch eggs? They are very gorgeous farmers' market ones with free-range eggs and proper pork and tasty seasonings...

What age would you reckon on starting this sort of thing?

Not an oldie with DS2 and BLW but I remember DS1 happily eating Scotch Eggs on his first birthday (cold!!) and trying some black pudding a couple of months later, which he hated.

Morcillo??? C'est quoi? Have I strayed into the Name That Perilous Pork Product thread in the vein of the Name That Random Veg thread? :?:

mind, you need to be a bit careful about ruling out all E numbers as some of them are perfectly ok substances ... vitamin C for example!

Actually I've noticed you see far fewer of them on labels now. I reckon the manufacturers have worked out everyone's so afraid of E numbers that it's better for them just to put "potassium hypobenzo32chlorateadenoine" and rely on our eyes glazing over.

that seems like a strange system to me, especially for people with food allergies. you'd have to memorize, then, which e numbers were 'lactates' etc., if you, like my bug, are allergic to dairy. i could see trying to just avoid them all, but as eleanor said, some of them are just vitamins. though maybe vitamin fortification isn't as ubiquitous there as here. anyway, interesting-- thanks for my continuing education into british/eu food lingo:)
