Thermomix cooking for your baby & toddler

It’s about time we got a baby and toddler cookbook for the old Thermomix. I wish there were more cookbooks for the Thermomix lovers out there. Especially when it comes to dinner time for the family. That is when my Thermomix really comes into it’s own and helps me get a super fast dinner on the table while I’m off doing other things – like entertaining children and trying to keep them busy.

I was sent the latest Thermomix cookbook, ‘Thermomix Cooking for your Baby & Toddler’ by Louise Fulton Keats (granddaughter of THE Margaret Fulton) and it’s a great addition to your little home library. There are loads of great recipes for babies and toddlers but as soon as I opened the book I went straight to the family meal section. And started working out what I was going to make for dinner. Top of my list to make were the sausage rolls (great to keep in the freezer and also for kids parties), prawn and fish wontons, ricotta and spinach ravioli, carrot cakes with lemon cream cheese frosting and crunchy fish fingers (no more fish fingers from a packet).

The recipes are definitely what your little ones want to eat and what will also keep everyone in the family happy. There is even a macaroni cheese recipe which of course I will have to make however much it pains me because my lot would eat it 7 days a week. Retro daddy will eat something else because after 6 years of making it he is well and truly over macaroni cheese/tuna macaraoni/ any other variation I try on the old mac n cheese.

There is a really great page in the book about what foods to avoid, what age and the reason why. The start of each chapter also includes helpful advice and it was informative without being too long or indepth to read. It was also up to date. I think even mums second (or third or more) times around will learn a thing or two as well.

We road tested the sausage rolls and they were a winner. There is no salt or seasoning in the recipe so emerson ate 2 of the rolls and next time I might just season the mince for the adults as retro daddy and I love a bit of salt and pepper in ours. Huge hit and I got 3 trays of sausage rolls out of the recipe.

All in all this was a great book to keep in your kitchen if you have little ones in your house. My thermomix cookbooks are all in pretty high rotation in my kitchen but it’s the old favourites that really keep the family happy and I love how this book has some great new recipes that I know I’ll be making time and time again.


  1. Those sausage rolls look so good, I see they have some vegetables camouflaged inside, a great way to get kids to eat more veggies.

  2. I have to say that I quite like Louise’s books. I have two of them and her recipes are such fun and easy for my daughter to follow along with me and so far all recipes have been winners! Those sausage rolls look delish!

    Lovely to know this has your approval and let’s face it Louise comes with some seriously good credentials as a third generation cookbook writer.

    It is so true that the good old fashioned family favourites are always the star food. A modern variation on the meat and 3 veg is always a winner.

    Sausage rolls look great and I take note of the food styling!

    I love this book! My copy arrived last Tuesday and I’ve already made the pumpkin & pea risotto and the carrot cakes with lemon cream cheese icing. Both were a huge hit and I see many other great meals to come. It’s so nice to have a baby & toddler cookbook for the thermomix!

    • my thoughts exactly!!!! I felt like there was nothing in the everyday cookbook that comes with your machine so I’m really loving this one! great to hear:)

  5. oooh just what I need right now, am so stuck in a dinner rut! Love my Thermo but getting v bored doing the same ole. Mine would also happily live on Mac n Cheese urgh! Kate

  6. Hi Corrie, thanks for the review, I’m interested to hear what you think of other recipes in the book. I am tempted to get it but like you, am more interested in the ‘family’ recipes as I am cooking for a 2 and 3 year old as opposed to ‘babies’…not sure if it would still be worthwhile getting it as we’ve already passed the baby stage?

  7. Now that i have my thermie and fussy 8, 4 and 2 yr olds I might have to put this on my bday list.

  8. After to chatting to you and Nikki I think I’m pretty much sold on the Thermomix. If all goes according the plan, I’m buying myself one for my birthday this year!

  9. where can I get this book Corrie x
