Chicken and carrot puree for babies.
Most of us grew up watching the clever bugs’ bunny eating yummy carrots (whats up doc!!). Since our childhood we have told how carrots are one of the best vegetables to include in our diet plan. Carrots are one the best first foods to introduce to a baby. Chicken is also wholesome and nutritious.
Carrots have loads of dietary fiber, Vitamin C, calcium and iron. They have a huge amount of Vitamin A which helps to improve eye sight, skin and resistance to infections.
When your baby is only 6 months old, feed single vegetable or fruit puree at a time (no combinations), so that he/she gets used to that taste. As baby gets older, you can try different combinations to add variety to your baby’s diet.
So ladies, if your bub is now ready for new flavors get ready to serve delicious chicken and carrot puree for your baby.
- 200 grams boneless chicken meat (breast or thigh)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil or ghee
- 1 carrot
- ½ teaspoon mixed herbs
- 1 cup water
Be sure to sterilize all the utensils needed for making the puree by boiling them in hot water.
Take the chicken and remove any skin form it then cut into one centimeter cubes.
Wash the carrot thoroughly under cold water and scrub it well to remove any dirt. Peel it and chop into one centimeter cubes. Heat oil in a saucepan and add the chicken. Cook it until it changes its color. Add the carrot and cook for one minute. Add the herb misture or spices.
Now add water and cook for 15 minutes or till the chicken is tender. This can also be done in a pressure cooker for 2 whistles. Cool the ingredients and blend it in a food processor until its smooth.
Watch your baby enjoy the subtle taste of chicken and carrot.
While it is always advisable to feed your baby fresh food, the left over Green Peas Puree can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 days and can be thawed overnight to use it again.
Breastmilk is best for baby. Please consult your pediatrician before introducing new foods into your child’s diet.
