Feeding our children can be tasking especially when you don’t want to compromise on good nutrition. Also, after a hectic day, you make a meal and your child goes “but we’ve eaten this same food for the past two days”…that means “you have entered one chance” like we say in Nigeria. What about clearing their plates only to leave all the vegetables on one side for you? New mums are not left out especially first timers who don’t know what foods to introduce to their babies from 6 months or thinking that it is only pap and milk that baby needs.
You know what? You are not alone and most of us face the same issues every day. Mummy’s Yum is here to give you those weaning food to start of babies with, as well as kid-friendly food ideas for toddlers, pre-school and school children. The recipes are made with the kids in mind, but you can still find family-friendly meals too.
Nigerian foods are versatile, so there are lots of food ideas and recipes that we can create using our traditional food staples, combined with world foods that can be easily sourced… not one that you will climb the trees and mountains to look for (lol). For example, the Yam and Corn Fritters is a beautiful way to combine Nigerian yam with cheese to make a delicious meal that your kids will love.
Feeding your child is not all about fancy food and plating or mixing and matching foods without checking whether they are nutritionally balanced. This is one area I always pay particular attention when developing food ideas for babies and kids of Mummy’s Yum. You will find recipes that are very easy and simple to follow, ingredients that can be easily found and food combinations that tick the all the nutrition box.
I hope that the recipes and information will make the feeding journey of your little and big kids a lot more enjoyable.

Give me kitchen chores rather than other house chores i will do it gladly. I also like fiddling and learning things by myself (cake decoration is my new fave). I like experimenting with food a lot and i bet you they all turn out great…ok, a few bads 😉
I have always been of the belief that food is whatever you make of it and you can always ‘conjure’ something up even when you have an almost empty cupboard. I want to share my passion with other mums and widen the nutritious food choices for their kids.
I am a non-practicing lawyer and my passion has led me to do some short courses on Child Nutrition, Complementary Feeding and Obesity, Allergies and reducing the risk in early life.
I am just a mum and not a chef so all recipes, views and opinions expressed in here are based on personal knowledge and experience as a mum who likes to experiment with food, loves reading, researching and learning. Don’t hesitate to ask me questions or request any information that I can be of help.
I’m happy to receive private messages too. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll happily get back to you.
