In the mood for Mexican food? Us too
If you thought Joe Wicks' new Wean in 15 recipe book only had meals for babies then think again. The Body Coach's latest book is jam-packed with meals to suit the whole family and this fish taco recipe is one we can see ourselves making again and again.
"The more variety you can offer your baby at a young age, the less likely they are to become fussy eaters," says Joe of this dish which is a hit with both adults and little ones. "This is my lovely, lightly spiced take on a Mexican taco."
