2 easy toddler lunchbox recipes using Woolies baby food

Looking for convenient, high quality food for your baby or toddler? Woolies baby foods includes fresh, frozen and long-life options to meet all your needs. Is your little one managing finger foods? Here are two easy ways to turn readymade baby foods into lunchbox saviours.

Planning meals for babies and toddlers can be a stressful job. There’s so much advice out there – and so much pressure to make the right choice. And while the “momfluencers” may make it look easy, making everything from scratch at home isn’t always practical. Yet you still need baby food that ticks all the boxes: high quality, nutritious, great flavour – and convenient. Woolworths’ baby food range does all the hard work for you:

  • Woolies never add salt or sugar to their baby meals
  • Meat and poultry are always free range and free from hormones and routine antibiotics
  • Made with sustainably farmed vegetables, from Woolworths’ Farming for the future programme
  • Designed to introduce new textures, flavours and nutrients throughout your baby’s growth and development
  • All packaging is made from recyclable materials
  • Offer ease and convenience for parents at every stage of the weaning and eating solids journey

Choose from three different types, to match your family’s needs:

1. Frozen meal cubes

Want to make sure you never run out of baby food? Keep a stock of these new lifesavers in your freezer. The new frozen cubes range offers a ready supply of fruit and vegetables that are prepared and frozen at peak freshness. You’ll find varieties such as oats with coconut milk and cinnamon and chicken, lentils, carrots and thyme. They’re packaged in small cubes to make it easier to defrost and mix to give you the freedom to create the taste your baby loves.

2. Long-life baby food

For parents who stock up on baby food, there’s a long-life range. Made just as you would at home, this range includes chunkier options and a wide variety of plant-based flavours. Look out for the new packaging in-store.

3. Fresh baby food range

For more adventurous eaters, the new fresh baby food range is chunkier in texture and has more complex flavours. You can heat and serve. For toddlers and advanced eaters already on finger foods, you can also use this range to create new meals such as cottage pie and muffins.

Here’s how:

Lunchbox cottage pies

You can freeze these mini cottage pies and pop them into a lunchbox to send to daycare or save them for when you’re out and about with your toddler. The chunky 6 months and up baby food is available in small pots in flavours including beef, bean and veggies, and roast veggies with quinoa. Fill baked phyllo pastry cups with your preferred flavour, top with cheese, and Woolworths creamy potato mash and bake until cheese is melted.
