5 Sugar-free Baby Recipes

While too much sugar isn't recommended for babies under the age of 1 - including chocolate and honey - sweet treats, snacks and desserts can be made just as tasty with a little know how and a few natural sugar substitues! You can sweeten pancakes, porride and natural yoghurt with fruits such as banana, sweet potato and apple (simply steam and blend in your nutribaby+ !) Sweet coconut and cocoa or cacao powder will also add sweetness without the sugar content.

Try our 5 sweet recipe ideas for a quick breakfast, easy dessert or prepared snack for on-the-go! 

With thanks to Amy-Jo, mum to 10-month old baby Blu who has devised these gorgeous recipes with her Nutribaby(+) Check out more of her weaning recipes @lifeofbabyblu
