Types of vegetables he has eaten : pumpkin, carrots, sweet potatoes, radish, cauliflower, broccoli, potatoes, french beans, long beans, asparagus, spinach, choy sum and siu bak choy.

Fruits : After his meal, he will have fruits. He has eaten red apples & bananas (his favourites), mangoes, papayas and pears.

Time : 1st meal at 11:00 am & 2nd meal at 6:00 pm

Snack : Snack at 3:00 pm. He will have biscuits with milk or cheese cubes or yoghurt with raisins/fruits. After the snack, he will drink 4 oz of milk.

Preparation of Brae’s food

Porridge is prepared the night before. 2 tbsp of Japanese rice grains with 1 1/2 cups of chicken stock. Cook the porridge in a slow cooker for 3 hours in low setting ( I use a timer so that the porridge will be ready the next morning at 9:00 am). I steam the fish with ginger (to remove the fishy smell). After steaming, I remove the ginger, flake the fish and stir it into the cooked porridge.

Chicken stock ingredients:-

3 pieces of chicken drumstick (remove the skin and chop the meat finely)
1 cup of anchovies (blended with water)
20 pieces of red dates (remove the seed)
9 cups of water


Pour all the ingredients in the slow cooker. Boil the stock in low setting for six hours. After boiling, divide the chicken stock into 6 containers (1 1/2 cups each) to freeze for later use.

I will buy three types of vegetables, cut them into pieces and store them in containers. Fish or chicken will be taken out from the freezer the night before to defrost.

Few pieces of pumpkin, broccoli and choy sum were taken out from the containers to Chicco (steamer cum blender) for steaming.

After steaming, I blend the vegetables into a puree.

I divide the vegetables into two portions (1st meal & 2nd meal) and combined them with the cooked porridge. 2nd meal is kept in the fridge which is taken out for reheating at 6:00 pm.

Braedyn with his 1st meal and he finished his food.

Dessert time! Apple was on the menu of the day. An apple was cut into pieces and blended.

Braedyn finished his favourite dessert as well.

p/s : I’m out of recipes for Braedyn. If anyone of you has any yummylicious food for babies, please do let me know. Thanks.

    Wah, his menu very fong fu! I’ll have to use some of your recipe for Belle. We’re gonna send her to daycare very soon. šŸ˜¦ For the anchovies, you can use ngan yu jai (small silver fish).

    Wash it thoroughly (few times) and put under the sun to dry and later bake it in the oven till slightly brown. Then pound it to fine bits and fry it in the wok again.

    Quite a hassle but then when you feed Brae, all you need to do is put a teaspoon of it in the porridge and it will be delicious!

    You can also put dried scallops in your porridge too. Belle loves that. We bought a fresh food feeder for her fruits. You can try getting that. It’s better than chopping up the fruits. Great for fruits that has stringy fibers like mangoes, plums, peaches.

    Wow.. your chicco blender looks changgih.. so it does the steaming and the blending together? How much is it?

    We’re thinking of getting a teffal steamer..

    Have seen the fresh food feeder at stores but the mesh material looks difficult to clean. You just pop the fruits in and then? Does the baby chew on it for the juice?

    Zara’s mama:
    Looks changgih but not very solid. It steams and blends in the same compartment but the steaming is done on the upper rack. After which you pour the water away, transfer the food to the lower rack for the blending. Paid RM300+ for it. Seemed expensive but looking back…..worth every cent.

    Tefal steamer would be good as quantities increase. Our Chicco is already operating at maximum capacity.

    yea, just cut up the fruits in big chunks and pop in there. Belle chews on it for the juice & meat. What’s left are the stringy fibers of the fruit. It is actually quite easy to clean. The only difficult part was trying to pry it open. Definitely a child-proof product!–>
