Vegemite. That strange black spread that is uniquely Australian.
It’s actually very rich in vitamin B, which is essential for growth and development in children.
These days, it seems that all babies progress from soft, mushy baby food and eventually end up eating Vegemite sandwiches. I like to bake with it, and make Cheese and Vegemite scrolls. I’ve made them previously for my mother’s group and all the kids enjoy them. My eldest son also enjoys helping make this recipe.
