Chicken and Peaches #babyfood #recipe

Finding great recipes that incorporate lean fats and protein into baby food is a lot easier than what you think. Sure, pureeing meats isn't for the faint of heart, but they hold great nutrition for your growing babe and their busy body.

Mix together

2 cubes of pureed chicken
2 cubes of pureed peaches
2 tbsp of infant oatmeal cereal

If you are making your own baby cereal, I find that it is best to add the oatmeal while it is still warm to defrosted cubes of baby food. Then, let it all mix and sit over night and you will have a really hearty breakfast for your little one.

To make pureed chicken, poach your chicken breasts or thighs in boiling water until cooked through, then puree in your blender or food processor. Otherwise, do like I did and roast them! I love roasting nearly all of my baby food ingredients. It heightens the flavour, and I can set a timer and go on about my day while the oven is cooking. Two roasted chicken breasts will yield approximately one ice cube tray of chicken puree.

If your baby isn't a fan of peaches, try this recipe with pears, apples, plums or even cauliflower!
