A simple baby food recipe – pasta salad

Baby food recipes are something we spend a lot of time on researching these days. From books, the internet and even childhood memories. But there is always something up when you prepare the food to take with you when you’re out or even if it’s to pack for your little one to take to school.

Ive been cracking my head on what to pre-cook for Ariana to take to school for her lunch.. They don’t have microwaves and stuff and I don’t have a thermal thing to keep her food warm so one of the dishes I decided

to make was a pasta salad which can be made the day before and you can just stick it in your child’s lunch bag right out of the fridge the next day.. 🙂

Cooked pasta (cooled)
Frozen mixed veg (thawed) [I usually put mine in hot water to let it cook a bit first] 1/2 can of tuna flakes
– mix well so the tuna is evenly mixed
1tbsp mayo
2tbsp fresh yogurt
Salt and pepper to taste [I’d only add salt if my child were over 2. Hehe] -mix into tuna and pasta combo and mix evenly. [I usually stick all this in a plastic container with the lid on and shake it nice. Makes things easier, even your child could help out doing that part 🙂 ]

Ariana loves her pasta and it was fun serving her this one as the pasta is shaped as animals so you’d get remarks like, “look mummy, I found a rhino!” Or “I’m gonna eat the lion! Ngap!” Its great when your child enjoys her food its even better when they sit down and have fun eating it without any hassle too! 🙂

Enjoy!
