Baby Pasta with Homemade Organic Sauce

“Baby has a choice to eat nice looking delicious food, too!”

I was taking nap with my son till not in time to cook his usual lunch porridge in slow cooker. There come this idea of quick fix baby lunch, in less than 15 min!

An entirely new taste over the usual Asian porridge flavor, yet healthy and suitable for baby’s appetite. I added some Italian herbs to my baby pasta. Yea, introducing Western herbs to babies may sound weird to many Asian parents, but it is one of better ways to let our little ones eat varieties, helping them to accept new taste at this very young age so that they will not turn picky eater later on. read more

White Milk Bread Recipe (with Bread Maker)

“White Milk Bread for baby”

I know my handmade bread from scratch is tasty, but if I were to make a handmade loaf every other day for my 1-year old baby, it’s nearly impossible due to my busy routines as well as having this precious one clinched on me whenever he is awake.

Effortless baking, and for time saving purpose, I decided to get myself an electronic bread maker which will help to do everything, after placing the ingredients in.

No particular reason for choosing this brand, it was simply because Best Denki had an offer deal for this. Original price was S$179, and I got it there at only $139. read more

Bellamy’s organic rice cereal was the first rice cereal I started with for my precious little one. It has to be from organic source, I tried to give as much as I could to my baby. And, reason to choose white rice as first rice cereal meal than the brown rice because there was this nutritionist I met in one of the baby fair told me that white rice is easier for baby to digest as new solid food, though brown rice is more nutritious and wholesome… I listened and followed as it makes sense to me. :) read more
