We are delighted to have collaborated on this spice blend with Charlotte Stirling-Reed: award-winning baby and child nutritionist, who has worked with Joe Wicks on 'Wean in 15' and recently released bestselling cookbook 'How to Wean Your Baby'.
The Baby Blend is a gentle mix of spices designed to help introduce new flavours to your baby's diet. It has a very gentle spiciness from the sweet paprika and a sweetness from True Cinnamon as well as cumin, coriander, turmeric and pepper.
When it comes to weaning, start with the smallest of pinches in a root vegetable mash or perhaps a savoury rice porridge. As your baby becomes a toddler, this gentle spice blend is great for sprinkling over sweet potato wedges before roasting or adding to a vegetable casserole or chicken tagine – along with dried apricots and sultanas.
Sweet Paprika, turmeric, ground coriander, ground cumin, cinnamon, ground pepper
All spice blends should be be stored in a dark, airtight container, to prevent them from losing their colour and potency.
