What sort of puddings did/do you use for little babies around Kirsty's age?

Until now I've used yogurt or fruit puree. but Kirsty is moving onto self-feeding and purees are more for younger babies. I have started making my own rice pudding so that is one thing... any other ideas?

What classifies something as "pudding" and why is it given? As far as I know we don't give anything like that... But I don't really understand what you mean either...

I wasn't sure about the word pudding... I think you guys call it dessert?! The food you would give after the savoury main course?

Oh! Ok Yeah, dessert We don't give dessert unless we are actually having a dessert which is pretty much.... never! hah! He gets plenty of fruit and such throughout the day so I don't feel like he needs it... Don't want to get him used to something he will very rarely get in the future Hope someone else has some actual advice for you lol!

That was how I felt too... we rarely eat pudding either. Kirsty needs the extra food though. I might try and stop giving it for evening meals. The last few days I've been giving her loads more fruit - she is almost fully self-feeding (using her hands lol) and so it's soooo much easier to give her different types of foods & fruit.

Mine just have yoghurts as we wouldn't normally have a pudding. If we do (probably once a week) they have some too, apple crumble and custard or something

Mischa normally has a yoghurt or a fruit puree after she's had her main meal. Zach usually has fruit of some description after his main meal. Rather than giving them 'puddings' as such, I'd rather they had a piece of fruit to fill them up if they are still hungry after their main meal.

Amara usually has fruit with or after her meals. A nice treat is stewed apples (you can use pears as well) with cinnamon. Amara loves this.

I think it's a fairly common and super easy recipe and you can do it 2 ways, either boiling or baking.

All you need are apples/pears, cinnamon, water

- Peel and core the apples
- If baking, add to a baking dish / If boiling, add to saucepan
- Sprinkle with cinnamon
- Add a little water (depending on how many apples you use). You don't need to cover the apples, just enough water to help them cook and not burn.
- Cook for about 15 - 20 minutes (if baking, set oven to around 300 degrees)
- Let cool, slice into cubes and serve

Thank you Mari, I do plan to try Kirsty with cooked slices/cubes of apple. I gave her a slice of uncooked apple just before Christmas but she choked soooo badly on it! I got such a fright.
