When it comes to babies, Breastfeeding is best, and provides the ideal balanced diet and protection against illness. During pregnancy and after delivery, a mother’s diet should contain sufficient key nutrients. Professional guidance can be sought on diet and the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. Infant formula is intended to replace breast-milk when mothers do not breastfeed. A decision not to breast-feed, or to introduce partial bottle-feeding, could reduce the supply of breast-milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish. Infant formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use, such as the use of unboiled water, unboiled bottles or incorrect dilution may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, such as the preparation requirements and the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.

Our Baby Website mentions food, toddler milks and sometimes infant formula.

Creamy Polenta with Savoury Mince

Preparation time

15 minutes

Cooking time

15 minutes



Recipe Ingredients

  • Spray oil for cooking
  • 200g lean mince beef
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped onion
  • ½ cup (40g) finely chopped mushrooms
  • 1½ tsp cornflour
  • ½ cup (125mL) chicken stock or water
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • ½ cup (60g) frozen peas

  • ¼ cup (60mL) water
  • 1/3 cup (80mL) milk
  • 1 tbsp polenta
  • 1 tbsp finely grated cheese

How to make

  1. Heat a small frying pan over medium heat; spray with oil, add beef, onion and mushrooms; cook until beef is cooked through and onion is tender; dissolve cornflour in ¼ cup (60mL) chicken stock or water; add remaining stock or water and pour into beef with tomato paste and peas; bring to the boil; simmer until thick and creamy and peas are tender. For younger babies, simply place in a food processor, and process to required consistency, adding boiled water if necessary.

  1. Place water, milk and polenta in a small saucepan over medium heat; bring to the boil, stirring constantly; cook 6 minutes or until thick and creamy; remove from heat, add cheese, stirring until it melts.


Savoury Mince makes 3 serves. Extra serves can be placed into freezer proof containers and frozen for up to 1 month.

Creamy Polenta serves one; it’s better to make it fresh each time it’s needed, as polenta thickens substantially in the fridge and is hard to reheat to a creamy consistency.
