Enzo is almost 9 months old, and i still have not fed him meat. I dont know how to prepare it for him, and i guess im a little intimidated by it. How do you serve meats to your lo?

I read on a website (I think it was Wholesome Baby Food) to puree the cooked meat in a blender until it gets a little powdery and then add liquid as needed to make it into a puree. I haven't tried it yet since Lily hasn't had meat yet.

i haven't made meat for Thea yet, but i used to work in a facility for disabled adults and they were on pureed diets so i made lots of 'baby food' every day. we did it just how Shelly said. after the meat was cooked (for a baby, i would just not use seasoning), we put it in the processor and added liquid to get the desired consistancy.

I have given Cam chicken. I boil the chicken, then I add like a few slices of apples/apricots and the some brown rice/little pastas and then I boil till it is all really tender and then I put it in the processor with the broth and blend it until it is at the consistency that he likes. He loves it! I have actually read that boneless chicken thighs are the meat with the most protein and healthy fats, but I use boneless chicken breasts. It usually makes a lot so I freeze it.

I know this is an old thread, but we've done meats a lot since Ben turned 6 months old. The amount of protein in the "mixed dinner" jars with meat included doesn't come close to the plain meats - you'd have to have like 6 jars of the mixed dinners to equal the protein in a plain meat (I learned that at work!). So I use the mixed meal jars sometimes, but mostly he gets plain meats. He has had ground up chicken breasts, and pureed ground chicken ...and the other night he just had cooked ground chicken in little chunks and did okay with it. I bought ground turkey and cooked that up and pureed it. Same with ground beef. He's had ham from the jar, but I haven't made any up for him myself yet. We'll see if I get to that.

That's exactly how I did it. I just boiled a skinless chicken breast (no seasoning). I also tried it with some top round roast. I freeze it in ice cube trays and usually mix one cube of veggies with one cube of the meat.
