Flapjacks were a hit in our house long before babies. I originally got my recipe from one of my closest friends Kathy and its evolved with each baby into this recipe.

This recipe is a hit with the whole family and covers so much during the week from playschool lunchboxes, snacks, swimming bag, tea break and breakfasts!

By successful it must involve me eating a full meal at a normal pace, a meal I consciously ordered and I’m not leaving the building sweating, crying or embarrassed.

Weaning – Getting started with Eimear Fahy of Accessories 4 Babies

Weaning Your Baby onto Solid Foods

Weaning means gradually introducing a range of solid foods to your baby until they are eating the same food as the rest of your family. As your baby eats more solids, they will want less milk.
