Baby Led Weaning

Growing healthy babies with healthy appetites

What To Do With A Freezer Full of Mashed Broccoli

At about 5 ½ months I went to get Boomer weighed, I was instructed to immediately start feeding my undernourished baby (baby who is complete with bracelets of fat and double chin). I rushed home and started mashing everything in sight – cat escaped relatively unscathed. Over the next few days Boomer seemed nonplussed about any of the tepid mashed delights I offered her.


I then discovered baby led weaning, I instantly loved the idea unfortunately it left me with the slight issue of what to do with my ridiculous sized portions of frozen mashed carrot, broccoli, sweet potato  etc.


These are the few ways I have devised to use the frozen delights and still stay pure to my ‘waste not want not’ ethos


  1. make that margarita interesting and almost healthy with a carrot ice cube
  2. soothe those tired eyes with slices of frozen broccoli
  3. be the life and soul of  any party with pre-frozen comedy vomit
  4. have ‘conscience free’ playtime fun with you baby and biodegradable building bricks


or alternatively sod it and chuck it all out

    How about coating pasta with it like it's a sauce?

    so, I'm not the only one who's been told that a perfectly happy, active 7mo old baby is losing weight, and must eat more solids? Here I was, thinking I was rubbish… Thank you! My Bebe is loving getting his food off my plate – had trout yesterday, and roast potato today!

    I was told recently that in the London area they have stopped weighing checks on babies as it can so misleading. So glad that you've had some reassurance proudmama and it sounds like Bebe is trying out some fab food. Thats whats its all about really, everybody enjoying the weaning experience especially little babies who get trout – boy I'm jelous!
