Yummy healthy filling

This is one of my favourite recipe for my little one. I started making this when he was less than a year old, almost around 10 months of age. This recipe started in sheer experiment but turned out to be the best meal I make for him.

You too can alter the ingredients by adding or deleting any of it. Adding seasoning is totally on your discretion of when you want to introduce what to your baby, like I added salt to this dish when he was 12 months plus.

try this one, your little one will surely love it and you'll surely feel satisfied when he eats it

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: One baby meal


  • Quarter cup Milk cream
  • One Egg
  • One Potato, Boiled and mashed
  • One slice Processed Cheese
  • One table spoon Butter
  • To Taste Salt
  • To taste Oregano
  • To taste Roasted garlic flakes
  1. Beat egg and cream together till they are mixed nicely
  2. Add salt and seasoning to the mixture and mix well
  3. Mix mashed boiled potato to this mixture. Add more cream/milk if required to make it a little flows consistency
  4. Heat a pan and add butter to it. Alternatively, you can grease a oven mould with butter
  5. As soon the butter melts, add your mixture and cook till it partially cooks, not top it up with cheese slice. Remove from pan when cheese melts and whole dish is cooked and has a creamy consistency
  6. In case you chose to cook in oven, add the mixture to the greased mould and place in oven at 250 degrees for 10 minutes. Take out after ten minutes and mix well and top up with cheese slice and rebate till cheese melts around 3 - 4 min. Please check if the dish is cooked well as every oven has a different setting.

      It sure is the best decision.

      They go through phases and I suppose that sometimes it's normal to get bored.... you have to hold on to your spoon or fork :-) Playing is always more interesting. And if you have more children, you will probably notice that they don't react the same way toward food or other things. It's quite interesting!

      About staying at home, I did the same as you, and now as my kids are quite older, they thanked me for it. I waited to go back to work until both my kids were full time at school and as a teacher, it was easy to fit my schedule with theirs.

      Good luck with the feeding ;-)

      I did try giving him fork and spoon. He likes it and I have to help him add food to his spoon. After few bites he gets bored. And yes I love every bit of being with him, I had a big decision of continuing to work or to take a break and some instinct told me to take a break. I take that as the best decision of my life.

      Enjoy every minute of it even if at time it's hard to find a goes so fast! Did you try to give him the spoon or the fork? Sometimes they like to be in control! Or maybe, you can share the control :-)

      Your little one seems to look at you with adoring eyes! Good for you and enjoy this precious time!

      When my kids were babies, I prepared some fresh vegetables and freeze them in ice cubes instead of buying food in jars. I found that idea in a really popular book at the time. My eldest son just love those pureed vegetables that I prepared but not my younger one. I must say I had a hard time convincing him to eat vegetables for a long time...but now as an adult, he loves fresh vegetables and especially brocoli :-)
