Fall has well and truly arrived and our days at the moment are a delightful mixture of warm and cool.

So today’s recipe is perfect for the season – delicious, warm, cinnamon-spiced banana, paired with the cool tang of natural yogurt. This easy-to-prepare dish is ready in just a few minutes and makes an ideal dessert for babies from around 6 to 7 months of age. The banana pieces are very soft and easy to gum, so it’s also a great dish for introducing a little texture.
