Chicken with Carrots and Corn

Babies need more protein than adults because they’re growing so fast. This is especially true in the first few years of your baby’s life. Most of the time, I cook with organic skinless, boneless chicken breasts, but the thigh is higher in fat than the breast, which is a good thing for babies and it also has more iron and twice as much zinc.

  1. This statement could not be farther from the truth. A baby requires less grams of protein per day. This is based off of grams per kg body weight. Excessive protein intake in infants/toddlers can lead to kidney failure and obesity.
