Milk must be whole, the healthiest is for babies to receive whole milk, not skim.

  • a litre of milk
  • 8 lactic calcium pills
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Servings: 4

Preparation time: less than 15 minutes

RECIPE PREPARATION Homemade cheese - 5-6 months:

Usually, I make half a liter of milk, and baby pops the cheese for two days.

We will use a stainless steel bowl so that the milk does not stick or smoke when boiled. When it boils, add the calcium pills, ground beforehand and a teaspoon of lemon juice. In a minute the whey begins to separate from the cheese. Strain the cheese through a clean gauze and let it drain, and when it is cold we put it in a clean box with a lid and keep it in the fridge for a maximum of 2 days. It can be mixed with fruit for the meal from 10 o'clock.

You can put cheese in vegetable purees, in fruit purees, in polenta, in omelettes, in salads, with vegetables, in soups, with pasta. You can also use cheese for sandwiches or to make homemade cheesecake. Grated or diced cheese can be a fig food idea for children aged 8-9 months.

What are the benefits of cottage cheese in children's nutrition?

Improving digestion

Cow's cheese contains phosphorus, a major element that helps form bones along with calcium. Phosphates also help improve digestion, excretion, but also the production and extraction of energy from cells.

Strengthening the bone system

Calcium is one of the best known elements associated with milk and milk products. Its benefits include strengthening bones. The amount of calcium in cow's cheese is 8% of the recommended daily value. Calcium found in milk and dairy products, such as cottage cheese or curd, helps build strong bones in both childhood and adulthood. Regular consumption of cow's cheese can help prevent diseases such as osteoporosis or colon cancer.

Maintaining blood sugar levels

Cow's cheese is an important source of magnesium. In the human body, most of the concentration of magnesium is concentrated in the bone system. Magnesium acts as a catalyst, promoting biochemical reactions and activating various enzymes in the body. It also helps maintain blood sugar levels and prevent heart attacks, migraines and psychiatric disorders.

What type of cottage cheese to choose?

Fresh cheese is the product of direct coagulation of milk. The resulting product has direct milk fat, is not concentrated and is dietary. From a liter of milk, coming out at most 200 grams of fresh cheese.

Baked apple puree with cottage cheese (5 months)

It is a dish with an extraordinary taste, which rises as a preference among the highest places, close to the sublime banana puree with cereals.

I baked 2 larger apples in the oven, compared to the age of 4 months, I increased the ratio of apples from all the purees, reaching 2-3 depending on the size.

To bake them, I took them out with a knife and put them in a heat-resistant dish. For a few days I gave up adding sugar to them, because it gave the baby too much energy during the day, as if it were connected to an outlet. He was not at all upset by the deprivation, the apples being quite sweet. It also goes very well with boiled apples.

For the cheese I used a cup of pasteurized and fatty milk from the trade, of 3.5% fat, that milk from the UHT boxes, like Dorna, ZuZu, Laptina, Buna Dimineata, etc.

I boiled the milk and put a serious spoonful of lemon juice in it. I put it back on low heat, stirring constantly, until the cheese separated.

After that, I strained the whey cheese through gauze, a tea strainer works very well and I mixed it with the puree obtained from the ripe apples.

Because the cheese is a bit tight on the stomach, it is indicated only 1-2 times a week, necessarily accompanied on that day by fresh squeezed fruit juice.

Green beans with carrots, peppers and homemade cheese




Hello, what is the little one doing, is he an ant? If so, he's lucky, I made him a Mooshee Mooshee combination today. We will use green beans, carrots, capsicums and some homemade cheese. :)


  • 50 g green beans
  • ½ carrot
  • Cap capsicum peppers
  • 10 g homemade cheese
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Method of preparation:

1. Wash the pepper, cut it into slices and steam it.

2. After cooking, peel it.

3. Clean the green beans and carrots, wash and cut them into small pieces and steam them.

4. After the vegetables are cooked, chop them together with the cottage cheese and olive oil.

Homemade cheese for babies

It's time to put homemade cheese in my little girl's diet. For starters, we opted for goat cheese because goat's milk has more benefits than cow's milk:

  • it is easier to digest
  • as a structure, it approaches breast milk
  • has a low lactose content
  • it is rich in fatty acids
  • has a high calcium content

ingredients (I got about 2 servings):

  • 1 cup organic goat's milk with 3.2% fat
  • 1 goat's milk yogurt (organic too) with 3% fat

Method of preparation:

  1. I boiled the milk.
  2. When it reached boiling point (when it first boiled), I added 2 tablespoons of yogurt. I added the third one when I saw that the cheese is not chosen very well (I was already suffering considering that the first attempt was lemon cheese).
  3. I kept the pot on the fire for another 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until I saw that the cheese was well chosen.
  4. I drained the cheese in a thick sieve. You can also use gauze. It was very tasty (at least for me).

Homemade cheese can also be made with lemon, but it didn't work out for me. I had two attempts and missed both. With yogurt it came out first :).

Ingredients: 2 tablespoons steamed green beans (I have green beans from my mother-in-law's garden, put on in the winter, so it's the most organic of all?) 1 small raw carrot 1/4 leek 1 baby zucchini a small puppy garlic soup soup green parsley chicken Preparation: I cleaned, washed […] Read more…

6 months

6 months, diversification is not a very easy process for both them and their mothers.

The first 6 months of the baby's life are very important for a harmonious development, and the food must consist exclusively of breast milk. After the age of 6 months, the World Health Organization recommends starting to diversify. According to her, diversification should not be initiated earlier because the child's digestive system is not fully developed and cannot accept new foods. Another reason is allergies that can occur after consuming certain foods.

Vegetables, fruits and flours must be the first, followed by meat, cheese, egg yolk, yogurt, biscuits and poultry liver.

The little one's diet must be balanced and contain the necessary vitamins for a harmonious development. The mother must be flexible to the wishes of the child and not force him. After the age of 9 months, the mastication improves, and from 10 months, the baby manifests his food preferences.
