Can babies eat it - my lo is 9 months and I'm not veggie but often eat quorn as a low fat alternative and wondered if he could have it too? Such as cottage pie or bolognese made with quorn mince instead of beef mince??

I do Tyler bolognase with Quorn as it dosnt have all the grissley bits you get in mince and it is high in protein. but tbh I never checked the salt content. Im pretty sure its ok though. xx xx

just googled and found this:
It contains 88 percent Mycoprotein (mushroom), free range egg white, and roasted barley malt.
Per 100g it contains 94 calories, 14.5g of protein, 4.5 g of carbohydrates (0.6g sugar)and 2g of fat. It also contains just 0.2g of sodium, so is excellent for people on a low salt diet.
It's entirely gm free, as well as being free of artificial preservatives and colourings, and is approved by the vegetarian society.

Just be slightly careful. I have an allergy to Quorn and it gives me extremely stomach ache and diarrhoea.
You shouldn't have any problems if there is no history of allergies but introduce it slowly. It also contains egg white so I would introduce that first so that you know where any adverse reaction comes from.
Here is some advice on Quorn that I found on the internet:
Hope that helps,

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
