  • How to make

1 carrot
A drizzle of olive oil
4 slices of cucumber
½ an avocado
A squeeze of lemon
5 x Organix tomato slices

Step 1

Pre-heat your oven to 200°C / 180°C fan / Gas Mark 6, then peel the carrot and slice in half, then in half again lengthways.Place in a roasting tray and drizzle with a little oil, then roast for approx. 30-40 minutes until nicely cooked

Step 2

Allow carrots to cool, then prep all vegetables for the fun plate
Cucumber slices - Cut alternate little chunks out of each slice all the way around the edge, creating tire shapes
Avocado - Cut the half avocado in half again lengthwise, so you have two quarters. Then cut off the top and bottom edges to give a more straight edge and rectangular shape. You then may need to make the slice a little slimmer, so it’s a good size for your baby to pick up. The remaining quarter of avocado can be cut into a simple trailer shape with slanted edges. Drizzle both pieces with a tiny amount of lemon juice to prevent them from turning brown
Carrot - Cut into 3 batons 3cm long, one baton 6cm long, and then some into 8x1cm cubes. Create a chimney shape with a piece of carrot approx. 2cm square

Step 3

Now create your picture. Place the 4 cucumber tyres onto your plate and add the 4 Organix tomato slices on top to create wheels. Add the avocado tractor body and trailer, then add the carrot batons to make the shape of the tractor carriage. Add the chimney to the front, and the final tomato slice as a steering wheel. Then load the trailer with carrot cubes and serve

Recipe notes

Children of all ages can enjoy this fun plate. It’s great for younger babies as all the ingredients are soft and easy to chew and pick up. The small cubes of carrot in the trailer are trickier for small babies, but can really help develop their pincer grip.
