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.

Sweet and Sour Tofu

No-added-salt    No-added-egg


  • 200 g or 1 piece of pressed tofu or "tau gua"
  • 50 g minced meat
  • 30 g red onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp sweet corn (fresh or canned)
  • ½ tsp light soy sauce
  • ½ tsp corn flour


  • 4 tbsp tomato sauce or ketchup
  • 1 tsp plum sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 50 ml water
  • Pinch of salt to taste

Stove or oven method:

Marinate minced meat with the light soy sauce and corn flour for at least half an hour.

Rinse, pat dry and slice tofu into ½ inch thickness. Spread them on a kitchen towel to absorb the moisture. After 1 minute, turn them over and leave for another 1 minute. Then cut them into rectangular shapes, roughly 1½ inch x ½ inch.

Heat up cooking pan with oil. Pan-fry the tofu slices. Flip once or twice until all the sides turn golden brown. Set aside.

Heat up the cooking pan with oil again. Sauté the chopped onions until fragrant and lightly soften. Add in minced meat. Spread the mixture out evenly. Do not stir-fry immediately. Let it cook for a few seconds until mixture is slightly caramelised. Flip over and continue to cook for a while. Reduce the heat to low and start breaking up the meat.

Stir in seasoning and pressed tofu. Mix well. Cover with a lid and simmer for a while so that the tofu absorbs the sauce.

Remove the lid and add in sweet corns. Stir and combine well.

Cook until the sauce is slightly thickened. Serve warm.


This is a healthy dish that packs plenty of protein from minced meat and tofu as well as great flavour and nutrients from the sweet corn.​​​
