Chicken Baby Puree Recipe 

Let’s talk meat for babies. I love how the new guidelines say babies can eat just about anything once they reach 8 months of age. For our family starting food at 4 months is pretty standard. I found it pretty interesting all the debates of babies eating so young. Being from the Caribbean, I just about ignored all the chatter on this topic. I went with what has always been done in my family which is to start introducing foods around 4 months. Fast forward to the 6 month mark and Baby E has been enjoying a wonder variety of fruits, veggies and meats. This chicken baby puree is was the first meat dish I introduced to him. Let’s just say he loved it and now that we are approaching the 9 month mark, his palette has expanded so much more. 

If you are just starting out with meats, this is a great recipe to start with. By the time you introduce chicken puree, your baby will hopefully already be a fan of several fruits, starchy veggies and greens. You can feed this puree as a stand alone or pair it with one  of their favorite fruits or veggies. Baby E loves chicken and apples or chicken and carrots. I’ll share a recipe for those soon. For now enjoy this starter baby chicken puree.

      Hey Charlotte. Let me know how she likes it. E likes this one a lot. He’s not big on beef so I need to get creative with it for him. Good luck. Oh and Zoe has morphed into a picky eater these days. I’m working on her though. Pray for me.

    I just popped on to let you know that my infant LOVED this recipe. Thank you so much for posting! It was his first time trying chicken. He would give me a look of trepidation then when the flavor kicked in, a huge smile. Loving this web site 🙂

    Do you purée the liquid with the chicken, or do you drain all the elements and just purée the chicken on its own?

      Puree the chicken separately. You can use the liquid in parts.
