There are so many different dishes you can cook with chicken. Check out these colourful recipes for your baby...
When the time comes to introduce meat to your baby, soon after beginning weaning, chicken tends to be most mums' first choice. Versatile, easy to cook and mild in flavour, it's ideal for newly weaned babies. Chicken is a good source of protein for your baby, boosting his growth and development. It also combines well with virtually any ingredient you can think of, from vegetables to pasta, rice and even fruit.
Some babies struggle with the texture of meat at first, especially if they don't have any teeth yet, so make sure you cook chicken until it's tender. You'll probably also want to puree it initially. Be mindful, too, that chicken can carry bacteria that can lead to nasty stomach upsets. Always ensure that it's cooked thoroughly, and reheated until piping hot and left to cool before serving it to your baby, and wash your hands thoroughly after handling raw chicken.
