Today's nutritious recipe from Kinder Kitchen - mash with fish and sweetcorn for babies

Well, my daughter has decided not to eat anything green in colour. One vegetable that she does eat at the moment is sweetcorn. Hence, I have been adding it to a number of dishes. Mash with fish and sweetcorn was eaten without any problems - mostly because she couldn't pick the sweetcorn out one by one as it was stuck to the mash. What a mum has to do!

Mash with fish and sweetcorn (from 9 months upwards)

2 potatoes
1 tablespoon sweetcorn
100 grams boned fish (cod, pollack, salmon, haddock – any fish your child likes or any fish that is on special offer)
75 ml formula/whole milk (after 1 year use cows milk)
Black pepper


  1. Wash and peel the potatoes, and boil until soft (15-20 minutes). Empty the water from the pan and mash the potatoes with a potato masher
  2. Cook the fish on a low heat in the milk for 10 minutes. Once cooked remove the fish from the milk and remove the fish’s skin and throw away
  3. In the saucepan with the potatoes add the milk, fish, sweetcorn and a little black pepper, mix thoroughly and heat through for a couple of minutes on a low heat
  4. Serve once cooled.

Additional suggestions:

A great thing to add to this dish is a boiled egg which has been finely chopped. Instead of using normal potatoes you could always use sweet potatoes although they only need to be boiled for ten minutes or so until soft.
