Baby Parsley Mash

My daughters favorite food at the moment is mashed potato. A nice alternative to this recipe is to replace a bit of white potato with sweet.

For 6 + Months


One medium sized baking potato

Alpro Junior 1+ Soya Milk - around half a cup

A few sprigs of parsley

1 tsp fortified nutritional yeast flakes


I use a Beaba Babycook to prepare meals, but this could easily be done using any other steamer and blender.

Wash, peel and chop potato in to evenly sized small chunks and place in the steamer basket. Cook for around 15 minutes. In a Babycook this is water level 3.

Once cooked, get rid of the excess cooking water and tip potato into blender. Add the washed parsley, nutritional yeast and enough of the soya milk to blend to a smooth consistency which is right for your child.

A Note - Alpro Junior Soya Milk 1+ states on the packet that this can be used as part of weaning from 6 months +, but not as a child's main 'milk' drink until after one years of age. If you don't want to use this, made up formula can be used instead.
