This page shows you how to make vegetable stock (or broth) for your baby.
Store-bought stocks or broths are often high in salt – making them unsuitable for use in baby food (find out more about the dangers of adding salt to baby food). This simple vegetable broth recipe is still full of flavour, but is a much healthier alternative for your little one.
We recommend preparing stock or broth for your baby in large quantities, then storing it for future use. Stock freezes well – and our tip is to freeze it in ice cube trays, then transfer it to freezer bags once it’s solid. This means that you’ll have handy little individual portions of stock to use in your baby’s recipes.
