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.
Chicken with Carrots and Corn
Makes 1 1/4 cups
Good for ages 6 months and up
- 1/4 cup cooked brown rice
- 1/2 cup cubed chicken thigh
- 1/2 cup chopped carrots
- 1/2 cup corn kernels (I like to use organic frozen corn)
- Place the chicken in a steamer pot over boiling water and cook for 3 minutes.
- Add the carrots and corn and steam for an additional 5 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the veggies are soft.
- Place all the ingredients in the Baby Bullet and pulse until smooth, adding water from the steamer pot 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.
