Poached Chicken, Zucchini, Carrot & Apple Puree

  • Yield : 1 1/2 cups
  • Prep Time : 5m
  • Cook Time : 15m
  • Ready In : 20m

I made this it for the first time weeks ago thinking I was very clever and creative with the flavours.  However, just the other day I noticed a commercial baby food with the same flavours.  Maybe I’m not so inventive then. Well, it was a winner with George and must be a favourite with other bubs too.

Nutrition Note:  If you bub is ready, try to leave some texture in the puree to encourage your baby to chew.  This is important for their development of speech.
