Pick ‘n’ Mix Chicken and Corn Risoni

Sometimes a baby’s taste preferences are very clear right from the very start of introducing solids. Our pick ‘n’ mix puree recipes are perfect for helping to encourage variety and acceptance of new tastes and flavours.  Using pumpkin, carrot or sweet potato keeps this puree smooth and sweet tasting, whereas the peas and broccoli make the puree more textured and fibrous – a mix of pumpkin and broccoli was always George’s favourite as a baby.

Nutrition Note: if you need a wheat and gluten free option, combine 2 tablespoons of cooked quinoa or brown rice in place of the risoni when pureeing the mixture.

    I check your site every week when looking for meal planning ideas. Thanks so much for sharing. Just wondered if this would freeze ok? You probably get asked that question all the time – would it maybe be easier to pop a little “freezable” logo at the top of each recipe??? Just a thought!

    Just wondering if this could be left unblended for older babies/toddlers. Thanks

    Would you be able to substitute rice for risoni to make it gluten free?

    This might be a really silly question, but should I drain it before blending??
