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.

How to make

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan forced.
  2. Place potatoes in a large saucepan; cover with salted water; bring to the boil over high heat; simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium high heat; add onion, carrot, capsicum and celery; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until tender. Add garlic and mince; cook, breaking up any lumps, until mince is golden. Add flour; cook 1 minute; add tomato paste, MAGGI Original Seasoning and chicken stock; cook 15 minutes or until sauce comes to the boil and thickens. Spoon into a greased, 8 cup (2L) capacity oven proof casserole dish.
  4. Meanwhile, drain potatoes well; using a potato masher, mash until smooth; add butter and milk and mix until well combined. Spoon over mince; sprinkle with cheese; bake 30 minutes or until hot, bubbling and golden.


For younger babies, simply place in a food processor or blender, thinning down with boiled water for a thinner consistency or mash with a fork for older babies.
