Whether your little one is a fan of the Disney movie, Ratatouille or not, they will love acting like Remy from the movie and helping Mum or Dad prepare their own ratatouille meal. A traditional French dish with just a few ingredients, that is usually baked in the oven, is whipped up in the Babycook in a just a few minutes. While the adult does all the chopping, your little one may like scooping up the veggies and helping to put them into the steamer basket for cooking.

Chef’s tip

Serve with couscous for a delicious meal full of veggies that your little one is sure to love.  Keep it 'chunky' for toddlers or older children, or babies if you are doing baby led weaning.
