As we are increasingly aware of the perils of ready-made foods, packed with hidden sugar, salt and preservatives, it makes sense that the way to guarantee the best start in life is to make your baby's meals, from real food, from scratch. Having a new baby can be stressful and hectic so the Test Kitchen has created simple, nutritious meals from easily accessible ingredients that will satisfy all your baby's needs. In addition there are ideas that can be made in advance and saved for later occasions meaning you never have to turn to sugar-laden, shop-bought substitutes again.
