A recipe from my colleague Annabel Karmel. Egg is a great first food as it’s packed with the critical nutrient iron. The vitamin C from the broccoli, tomatoes and onion helps the iron get to where your baby needs it most. This frittata makes a delicious sharing lunch that you and your baby can eat together.
