Let your baby join the festivities this year by preparing them their own Christmas Dinner! This recipe is easy to follow. Great for babies starting solids.

Christmas Dinner for Baby


  • 1 medium carrot (80g)
  • 1 small parsnip (90g)
  • 1 medium potato (120g)
  • 50g broccoli florets
  • 65g cooked roasted turkey or chicken, very finely chopped
  • 1 pouch Heinz Simply Pear Guava and Strawberry


Step 1

Peel the carrot, parsnip and potatoes; cut into small dice. Cook in a small pan of boiling water for 10 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook for a further 5 minutes or until all the vegetables are tender.

Step 2

Drain the vegetables and return to the pan, mash until all lumps are small and soft. Add the turkey or chicken, and a squirt of Heinz Simply Pear Guava and Strawberry pouch (use instead of cranberry sauce) and stir through. Serve at room temperature or warmed.

Step 3

If your baby has just started solids (around 6 months) puree the ingredients with a stick blender until smooth. For older babies (around 10-12 months old) chop the vegetables into small pieces before cooking until soft – maybe 1 cm dice. Then your little one can either feed themselves with finger food, or you can roughly mash the ingredients and feed with a spoon.
