Recipe – Tuna Jacket Potato Makeover

A hit for Mama and Baby alike, my makeover of the humble Tuna Jacket makes for a simple lunch. I love how quick and easy it is to create a nutritious lunch that you can share with your baby.


Miss EEE and I are both at the tail end of a nasty cold. Nothing makes me feel better like a smile and a giggle from my little lady, so I decided on an easy, minimum effort lunch, to leave more time for playing. I bunged a humble potato in the oven and Miss EEE and I hit the park for some serious playtime on the swings. I was treated to lots of toothy grins and giggles from Madam and when we got home it was just a few minutes until lunch was on the table. As easy as child’s play!

I decided to jazz up the filling and give it a bit of a makeover from your bog standard Tuna jacket. As you can see, Teddy had to stand guard but Miss EEE enjoyed getting stuck into her nutritious lunch as much as I did. I also love being able to share food directly off my plate with her.
