225g self-raising flour
50g dairy-free soya-free margarine/spread
150ml Aptamil Pepti 1 or Aptamil Pepti 2
50g dairy-free soya-free cheese, finely grated
50g spinach
Pinch of ground nutmeg


Allergy information: EF, NF, SF, WCMPF. Offer at the texture your infant can manage.

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, 425°F or gas mark 7.
  2. Wash the spinach leaves and shake off the excess water. Remove any long stalks then place in a pan over a medium heat with a pinch of nutmeg, stirring occasionally. Do not add any liquid as water will sweat out of the spinach. After a couple of minutes when the spinach is evenly cooked, drain it and place into a cloth. Squeeze to remove excess water, then chop finely and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl rub the margarine into the flour, grate in 1/3 of the cheese, then add the chopped spinach. Mix well.
  4. Add the formula milk one tablespoon at a time, taking care not to make the mixture too wet. The dough should be soft but not sticky.
  5. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of 2cm, then cut out with a fluted pastry cutter.
  6. Place on a prepared baking tray, brush with formula milk and sprinkle with the remainder of the cheese.
  7. Bake in the oven on the centre shelf for 10–15 minutes until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

Chef's tip: Do not overcook or they will become hard and more difficult to chew and swallow.
