My girls have cereal in the morning (either baby cereal or weetabix with whole milk). Milk mid-morning. A veg-type puree for lunch (I use the recipes from Annabel Karmel mostly, or jars on the odd occassion if I'm out), plus a pudding. I then try them with water with the meal.
They have milk mid-afternoon & then rusk with milk for tea.
They're both 8 months, but were 2 months premature, so I'm still having to treat them as if they're 6mths.
Annable Karmel has some good menu plans in her book - you could have a look there if it helps.
Also - defrosting. A quick blast in the microwave should do it (maybe 1 min?).

Breakfast - anything really, weetabix with whole milk & fruit puree, hipp cereal, or rusk.
Dinner - Something like chicken & sweet potato, chicken and apple & carrot, or broccoli & cauli cheese...or a jar.
Tea - Fruit puree & baby rice, or fruity custard.
I either defrost in the microwave or overnight in the fridge xx

as it the first time he made then we wern't sure how much what we had would make! I think he made 4 carrot pots and 8 apple - she had an apple one as her evening meal and loved it! And he was really happy and pleased he had gone to the effort!
I'm sure I bought an anabel karmel book when I did my nursery nurse training - so annoyed I cant find it now! maybe father christmas should bring one early?? lol
There are some recipes on her website....

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
