Great Websites for Healthy Baby and Toddler Recipes

Parents today receive a lot of education about the importance of providing your child with a healthy and well balanced diet. However, putting this into practice can often be the cause of countless hours surfing the net in the search of a good recipe or two to make for your child tonight.

So we’ve done the hard work for you and found a number of websites that can provide you with a large array of healthy, nutritious recipe ideas to cook for your children.

One Handed Cooks

This is an Australian website created by Mum, Allie Gaunt. It is dedicated to recipes for baby, toddler and primary school aged children. The recipes are easy to follow and we found them to be tasty and packed full of nutritious food.

There are a number of informative sections that would be particularly useful for first time parents covering topics such as your child’s nutrition, food storage and preparation, techniques for transitioning your child onto solids and what to do if your child has a food allergy.

Stay At Home Mum

We are an Australian website, created by Mum- Jody Allen. The team at Stay At Home Mum have dedicated countless hours to creating a fantastic selection of free recipes that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

These recipes have been created for time poor parents who want to provide their families with nutritious and delicious home cooking.

Another fantastic resource offered through the website is Once a Month Cooking by Jody Allen. If you find that you never have enough time to cook and end up sending your kids to school with money for a lunch order most days- this book is for you! Jody demonstrates how, with just one full day of cooking- you can have your entire families lunches, dinners and snacks prepared for a whole month in advance! Need we say more??

Sugar Free Kids

This is an Australian website which was created by Mum, Sha Ragnauth. The website has a big collection of recipes including sweet treats, savoury snacks, party food and lunchbox ideas that are sugar free alternatives to traditional recipes. Check out the sugar free lollies recipe as a yummy while still healthier option for kids parties.

The website has a link to where you can purchase the I Quit Sugar, Kids Cookbook by Sarah Wilson.

Annabel Karmel

This is a British website created by Mum, Annabel Karmel. It is a great resource for age appropriate foods for your baby with a breakdown of recipes into First Foods, 6 9 months, 9 12 months, Kids 1 4 years and Kids 4 10 years. A lot of the content on the website is free, but there is a smart phone app. and a hardcopy recipe book that can be purchased online.

Homemade Baby Food Recipes

This is an American website which was created by Mum, Christine Albury.  This site caters for babies up to 12 months of age. As well as a lot of easy recipes, there are a number of useful sections on caring for your baby such as weaning, baby nutrition recommendations, preparation and storage of meals and baby travel tips.

You can also purchase a couple of eBooks from the website called Tempting Tiny Taste Buds and The Homemade Baby Food Recipe Collection.

The only downside is that you will need to convert a lot of the measurements of ingredients into metric- but this shouldn’t take up too much time- just keep the conversion webpage open and flick back and forth while gathering your ingredients.

These are just a few websites that we have tried out and found to be packed full of great recipes and handy tips for feeding your baby, toddler and child. If you have any other suggestions please feel free to let us know about it, we’d love to hear from you!
