BLW: Broccoli & Cheese Pinwheels

We’re a couple of months into our weaning journey now and we’ve been trying an abundance of recipes that I am going to try and get published asap. Sometimes it definitely feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day. but today I want to share my broccoli and cheese pinwheels recipe with you.

Being the independent baby led weaner that our little girl is I like to try new foods, textures and flavours all the time, I like to introduce new finger foods for her to explore and I love to try new recipes myself that I can give her. We love trying different things for lunches and you can check out another one of her favourite lunchtime foods in my previous blog post.


Making the pinwheels:

One of my IG friends had recommended trying pinwheels, and although I had heard of them I didn’t quite know what I would put in them, so I came up with a recipe (probably one that’s been done before – but as with most things parenting-related you will find I wing it as I go).

I decided to try a Broccoli and cheese mixture so I could do them for Hadley’s lunch. At this point in our weaning journey, I would say she is more interested in veggies than fruits, although I am trying to get her to take more of interest where I can. This pinwheels recipe is super simple and really tasty, my husband and I might have tried a couple for ourselves too – just to be sure they tasted ok for Hadley, of course.

There are so many different options and flavours to try when it comes to pinwheels and baby-led weaning – you can follow so many different recipes, this recipe, recipes on Pinterest or do what I did and create your own and see how it goes.


As you can see Hadley got stuck in straight away and she demolished quite a bit. Although she doesn’t have any teeth yet she is surprisingly good at gumming! Also, isn’t her plate amazing? I absolutely love the Bamboo Bamboo range and you can pick up her plate on Amazon*.
