Starter Fish Pie – 8mths+

Cook with flavour and love, and you will be rewarded with a happy eater. Serve bland, boring and repetitive food, and your child will start to refuse it. This family-favourite baby Starter Fish Pie provides a variety of colours and textures to show your little one how wonderful food can be.


  • 150 ml full cream milk
  • 1 firm white fish fillet such as Basa
  • 1 cube each carrot, broccoli and cauliflower purees (p22-23 of the recipe book)
  • 1 small potato, mashed (p26 of the recipe book)
  • 2 cubes cheesy sauce (p80 of the recipe book)


  1. In a small saucepan gently warm the milk and poach fish for 7 mins over med-low heat. Remove fish, reserve milk and using two forks, flake into small pieces.
  2. Thaw and heat all food cubes in the microwave, or on the stove top, mix in fish and enough reserved milk until desired consistency.
  3. Serve 1 portion and freeze remaining in cubes.


You can add just about any vegie cubes you have on hand.

Note: I really don’t like to freeze potato on its own so I always cook fresh, it takes 5 mins max in the microwave and the result is so much better than thawed and reheated potato.
