Juicy pink apples combined with the sharp sweetness of raspberries, and mixed with wholegrain oats to make a smooth, thick puree, perfect as a snack or for breakfast.  We love this weaning recipe from Piccolo’s in house nutritional therapist Alice Fotheringham. Make a big batch and mix up the berries and store in the fridge for all the family. For adults top with toasted seeds or ground nuts.
