Cauliflower for baby led weaning

Cauliflower is one of our favourite foods. Not only is it jam packed full of incredible nutrients that will look after your and your baby’s health, it’s really versatile too and can be used in so many different meals.

Why choose cauliflower for baby led weaning?

Cauliflower is a nutrient-rich vegetable which boasts a whole load of health benefits for your baby. Key nutrients include:

  • Fibre – helps keep things moving in the digestive tract and helps prevent constipation
  • Vitamin C – maintains a healthy immune system
  • Vitamin K – helps to make the proteins that build bones
  • Vitamin B6 – important for brain development
  • Folate – helps with the formation of red blood cells
  • Potassium – helps cells to function normally
  • Manganese – necessary for building healthy bones and tissues
  • Magnesium – supports muscle and nerve function
  • Phosphorus – builds strong healthy bones

Baby Led Weaning Cauliflower Fritters

A quick and simple recipe to create cauliflower fritters baby will love! The perfect baby led weaning lunch idea or ideal for batch cooking for snack on the go!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 13 minutes


  • one head of cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 15 grams of parmesan
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp black pepper (optional)


  1. Break the cauliflower head into florets and boil on the stove top for 10 minutes until tender.
  2. Place in a bowl and mash with the back of a fork. Discard the stems.
  3. Add egg, parmesan, the garlic powder and black pepper to bowl and mix thoroughly with a fork.
  4. Add the plain flour and combine. The mixture should thicken.
  5. Heat oil in a frying pan on high heat and spoon two tablespoons of the mixture into the pan per fritter. I prefer to cook one fritter at a time, but you may be able to fit two or three fritters in the pan at once.
  6. Reduce the heat and after a 2-3 mins, flip the fritter. Cook on the other side for a further 2mins, before transferring to a plate to cool.
  7. Leave to cool completely before serving to baby. Cut the fritters into strips for younger babies.
