Winning baby food recipe

An Irish mum has taken the taste of Manx bacon, cabbage and potatoes onto the international babyfood market.

Marion Dale lived in the Island last year when she fed Rosa-Mae a dish of mashed potatoes and cabbage with tiny bacon pieces.

And when she moved to Donegal, she entered the recipe into a competition run by Heinz baby food.

The company was so impressed it will now launch a new product including Marion’s ingredients.

But nobody will know it’s based on Manx food. When it launches, it’ll be known as Irish stew with gammon.
