Yes my baby eats curry!
Now here at sparkly towers we all love our spicy food, curries of all kinds and you can’t beat a bit of jerk chicken now can you ?
So we was keen to introduce a bit of spice into Mimi’s diet as early as we could. We started her on my coconut curry and she quickly moved on to chicken tikka masala, lamb rogan josh, chasni, balti, byriani and she even tried a bit of madras – although I think that may have been a little too hot ! But it hasn’t put her off in the slightest she loves her curry, naan bread and popadoms.
i think it’s important for children to start having the same meals as the rest of the family as young as possible and to let children try a wide range of foods and flavours.
I’m very proud to say that all 3 of our girls are very adventurous and will pretty much try anything once (even if it is only the once !), Grace loves calamari after trying it while out with friends for tapas!
People always seem so surprised when I say that Mimi loves curry and they seem even more surprised when they realise I’m not talking about a korma or butter chicken and I don’t really understand why, this age is the perfect time to introduce some amazing flavours and textures to a babies diet before they hit 2 or 3 and all they want is fish fingers half a bottle of ketchup and a bag of crisps! I should point out at this point that we make all of our curries from scratch – no jars here!!!
