This is a really easy recipe to whip up in a hurry! It’s a great vegetarian option for iron as beans are a super source of iron. The recipe is also good for providing protein, fiber, B vitamins & zinc. Both iron and zinc are 2 important nutrients for baby to start getting from food as breastmilk/formula start to no longer meet their needs between 6 and 8 months. If you try them let me know what you think! Love Sophie x
