Why offer raspberries to your baby?

Raspberries offer numerous health benefits for babies due to their rich nutritional profile. Here are some key highlights:

  • Antioxidant Powerhouse: Raspberries are loaded with antioxidants, including vitamin C and anthocyanins, which help strengthen the immune system and protect against free radicals.
  • Fiber Boost: These berries are an excellent source of dietary fiber, aiding in digestion and preventing constipation in babies.
  • Essential Nutrients: Raspberries provide essential nutrients like folate, potassium, and vitamin E, promoting healthy growth and development.
  • Brain-Boosting Omega-3s: Raspberries contain omega-3 fatty acids, which are crucial for brain development and cognitive function in infants.
  • Iron Content: Iron is essential for the production of red blood cells and overall blood health. Raspberries contain iron, making them a valuable addition to a baby’s diet.
  • Hydration Support: With their high water content, raspberries contribute to adequate hydration levels in babies, particularly during hot weather or when transitioning to solid foods.
  • Allergy-Friendly: Raspberries are considered a low-allergenic food, making them a safe choice for introducing new flavours to babies and reducing the risk of allergic reactions.

How do you makes these baby led weaning raspberry pancakes?

Start by cracking an egg in a bowl and whisking it until it becomes frothy.

Next, sift 60 grams of flour into a second bowl, adding half a tsp of baking powder.

Combine the egg and the flour, then pour in the milk slowly, whisking to create a batter.

Squish the raspberries in your hand then drop into the batter, using a spoon to fold them in.

Heat some oil or butter in a saucepan on high heat. Once melted, reduce the heat to medium-high.

Use half a ladle of batter for each pancake. Once the edges brown, carefully lift using a spatula and flip.

Stack up the raspberry pancakes while you make the rest.

Can you make this recipe with frozen raspberries?

You sure can! Sometimes it can be more expensive to get hold of fresh raspberries, especially during the winter months and it’s much more cost effective to buy frozen raspberries.

Frozen raspberries can be dropped into the batter and will thaw as the pancake is cooking in the pan. Just be wary of particularly bigger raspberries which may not thaw completely. Give any particularly big ones a little squish once the pancake has cooled to make sure they won’t be a choking hazard.

How do you serve these pancakes to your baby?

How you serve these raspberry pancakes depends on how old your baby is.

With younger babies, I tend to cut the pancakes into three or four strips so they can pick them up with their fist and bring them easily to their mouths.

With older babies, I’ll either cut into two strips or just serve the pancake whole so they can have at it!

You know your baby best, but strips are always a great way when baby is first starting out with baby led weaning.

Cutting the pancake into smaller chunks will help them develop their pincer grip as they get towards nine months and beyond.

How do you store these raspberry pancakes for baby?

This baby led weaning raspberry pancake recipe makes six palm sized pancakes, so chances are, you won’t have any pancakes left to store if you’re eating them together as a family. If however you’re making them for baby alone, they’ll probably only manage one or two, so you’re gonna wanna store the rest.

These raspberry pancakes are good in the fridge for three days or can be frozen for up to a month. Store them in an air tight container or wrap them in a sandwich or freezer bag to keep them protected.
