4 apples
2 pears
1ltr milk
4tblsp semolina
half cup cous cous
1 cup boiled water

Put the cous cous and water in a bowl. Set aside.
Peel, core and chop fruit. Stew in a pan with about a quater cup of water until soft (approx 15-20minutes).
Mash fruit. Add cous cous.
In a separate pan combine the milk and semolina and stir until boiling and then stir some more while it is boiling until it thickens (takes about 15 minutes total). Leave to cool. Add to fruit and cous cous. Spoon into individual pots (Tupperware snack cups are ideal). Makes about 15-20 serves.

You can use pumpkin and mixed veg instead of fruit if you want to. You can also used tinned fruit such as tinned pears. You can also use more fruit, according to your baby's tastes. I add a few prunes as well because my baby doesn't like to poop. I put about 5 pitted prunes in with the fruit before stewing & I chop them up.

What a great recipe. Its such a great feeling to feed and nurture our kids and know exactly what we are feeding them and where it is coming from. I just saw that a new community was formed for healthy recipes for the wee ones. Maybe you can post this one there too. Have a wonderful New Year!

My baby got tired of this recipe so now I have a new one. Equal amounts of 3 fruits - lately I use 10 plums, 8 bananas and a couple of apples (not equal I know, I guess a lot and go with what's on sale and what will fit in the food processor). Peel, chop and core fruit (don't have to peel the plums). Whizz in the food processor. Add big pot of plain yogurt or greek yogurt. Don't use flavoured yogurt, that's why you have the fruit :) I feed this to my baby (14months) for breakfast and for desserts. He loves it. Sometimes I use peaches and banans, strawberries, all kinds of fruit but I always whizz it in the food processor and add the yogurt. Keeps in the fridge for as long as the use by date on the original yogurt container.
