Meat equals happiness for most non-vegetarians, and introducing meat to your babies is a huge step. Once you have got the green signal from your doctor, you can start feeding your little one all the tasty meats you eat (pureed version).
So we found for you 3 amazing meat purees to give your baby when they start weaning.
1. Chicken Puree
This is a classic in every household. This tender meat is popular and the best meat to incorporate first into your baby’s diet
1. 1 cup cold and cooked boneless chicken – chopped into no bigger than 1-inch pieces
2. 1/4 c cooking juice (save the juices that you cooked the meat in) or plain water
Step 1: Place chicken chunks in blender or food processor and puree until a powdery mix is formed. Slowly add water and puree further until a smooth consistency is created.
Step 2: Add as much liquid as needed to make a consistency appropriate for your baby. You may add veggies or fruits to this puree as you like.
2. Fish Purée (Basic)
Fish is a super healthy meat, but be careful as to which fish you are giving your baby, as they should only be fed low mercury fishes. With that warning out of the way, here is a fish recipe for your baby.

2. 1/4 c or plain water
Step 1: Place fish in blender or food processor and slowly add liquid while puréeing until a smooth consistency is created.
