Love it or hate it?
Marmite was a staple of my diet as a child; I had cheese and marmite sandwiches almost everyday for school. My husband, being American, had never been introduced to this British staple and was extremely unimpressed when he was!
So, with baby A being half British and half American it seemed only right to let her decide.
OK, so she didn’t seem to keen! However, as the Hipp experts tell us, it can take up to 10 times for a baby to accept a new food so I will be trying my best to make her a true Brit. It is important to keep offering them a variety of foods to help them become more adventurous eaters when they are older.
We have also been trying some new flavours of fruit pot which she loves. She is so independent and always wants to hold the spoon herself so it is a messy affair! All Hipp fruits are grown organically and then steam cooked to retain the nutrients and keep as much flavour as possible.
I think it is important that not every Hipp meal is sweetened with fruit though -like some baby foods are – as babies need to get used to savoury flavours as well. Luckily, one of baby A’s favourite foods seems to be Broccoli so we are OK there!
This week it has been Easter so we let her have her first taste of chocolate – dairy and sugar free! Check out the video to see what she thought.
