Vegetable & kidney bean feast

If you are preparing this recipe for a baby unable to tolerate whole cows' milk, please read the special cautionary notes below.


  • 350g (12oz) potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 75g (2.5oz) broccoli florets

  • 60g (2oz) tinned kidney beans, unsalted
  • 20g margarine*
  • 2 tbsp your baby's usual milk*

Please note:

Remember not to add salt to any of your baby's recipes. Please check ingredients carefully as some products may contain allergens that you are unaware of. For example, some vegetable oils and margarines can contain soya. If your baby is following a strict vegetarian diet, make sure their usual milk is suitable for vegetarians.

*If your baby is following a milk free diet, just use the formula suitable for your baby's special diet as directed by your Healthcare Professional. Please make sure the margarine you use is milk free too. Vegetable oil can be used as an alternative.
