How To Make Your Own Home Made Sausage Rolls

My son has Cerebral Palsy, Optic Nerve Hypoplasia, Autism and Developmental Delay. Coleby is also on a puree food diet mainly due to him not being able to tolerate different textures of food.

I find that cooking things at home is a great way to encourage his involvement in being able to tolerate different foods. This takes the stress and anxiety out of having different foods around him. Each time we make something new, he may not eat it or even try it but it is a work in progress. I will cover food fussiness a bit later, but there are stages that your child must go through before they will eat a food and chew. Coleby goes a little further each time and we are happy with that!

I find that cooking with him also helps him to learn independent living skills. Although, he is not ready to cook on his own, he is learning about what is hot and cold, the colors and feel of different food, the smell of what is cooking, fine motor skills are improved through chopping (with my help of course).

  1. Hi

    Sausage Rolls…….Stop It!!!! Haha

    One of my favourites being an Australian and to be honest I have always wanted to know how to make them.

    Your recipe is simple and I will definitely be giving this a shot. Tomato Sauce or Ketchup as it is known is also great with a Sausgae Roll

    I look forward to some of your future posts.

    Cheers
