You know the cans of chicken that come like the cans of tuna, has anyone given this to their LO? I just read in one of my baby books that this is an easy meat for them to have. If I was having chicken for dinner I could just cut a little up for her to have, but I guess this would be easy to give her without seasonings on it instead. Has anyone tried this?

I never thought of that! I suppose there's nothing wrong with it. Make your own would be more fresh, but that would be pretty easy.

I would be wary of additives in canned chicken, as well as increased sodium levels and preservatives. You're probably better off using regular chicken breast. There is nothing wrong with a few herbs and spices...it's a lot better than "modified food starch" and who knows that else that they put in the canned chunk meats.

That's true Racine, I'd have to look at the label before and see what's really in there.

After I posted I thought of what Racine said... they do put some not so great stuff in there sometimes. At the very least it's worth checking out.

Ditto this! I'm very wary of preservatives, food dyes, and extra sodium---especially for Caleb. They do have a lot of shelf foods out there now that don't have any added preservatives, though. You just have to look for them if you want an easy dinner.
