Home-made Pumpkin Soup made in the Little Helper FunPod
Our daughter is 18 months and she has a cows milk protein, soy protein and egg allergy. This has made cooking a bit more challenging. However I have approached it by expanding my knowledge on dairy and egg free foods and exploring lots of different foods and recipes. Fleur loves food and so do we, she loves watching me cook and help prepare any meal I am making.
Children love to be helpful to their parents and that's why I encourage her to help. Speak to them and explain what foods we are going to cook. They will love to learn and it will help them understand where the food sources come from for their meals.
Challenge yourself and try something new, it's fun and enjoyable. I have made so many different recipes and failed but it's always worth having a go. Clear the bench and prepare yourself for some yummy treats and dinners ahead. I love cooking and I hope we can create that love for you. This is one of our favourites..
