Breastfeeding is the best for babies and a healthy diet / maternal nutrition is important when breastfeeding. A decision not to breastfeed can be difficult to reverse. Infant formula is suitable from birth when babies are not breastfed. It is recommended that all formula milks be used on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian, pharmacist, or other professional responsible for maternal and child care and the financial implications should be considered. All preparation and feeding instructions should be followed carefully as inappropriate preparation could lead to health hazards.

Braised Mushroom Noodles

Gluten-free    No-added-salt    No-added-egg


  • 1 bundle of fresh yellow noodles
  • 1/4 cup carrots
  • 1/2 beansprouts
  • 6 dried Shitake mushrooms
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 small shallot
  • 2 tsp canola oil

Stove or oven method:

Soak mushrooms in hot water. When soft, slice and set aside. Reserve mushroom water.

Boil yellow noodles, rinse with water and set aside.

Boil carrots and when cooked, add beansprouts and turn off heat. When beansprouts are cooked, drain and set aside. Reserve cooking water. Depending on your child's preference, you may choose to cook these vegetables till soft or have them slightly crunchy.

Fry diced shallots and garlic in oil. Add sliced mushroom, and fry for 2 minutes. Add mushroom water, cooking water from vegetables, soysauce, oyster sauce, sugar and vinegar. Braise till liquid becomes a rich gravy.

Drain mushrooms from gravy. Toss noodles in gravy.

Arrange mushrooms and vegetables on top and serve either on its own or with a meat accompaniment.


Shitake mushrooms make this dish a good source of nucleotides. A meat accompaniment such as an omelette, grilled chicken drumettes, and fish fingers would make this a well balanced meal. You may also add some minced meat to the braised mushroom while cooking.​​
