I am happy to prepare purees for babies in my care that are weaning and will discuss this with you so I am aware of the foods your baby has tried. I will only introduce new foods with your permission and I am unable to introduce food groups such as dairy or fish unless your child has already tried them at home, in case of an allergic reaction.

Vegetarian options also available.
