When you cook for your baby, how do you do it?

I mean as in meat. My daughter has stuck her nose up to baby food and now wants what I'm eating. So when I make her chicken, I basically boil/steam it. I don't want to cook it in oil and I just don't have time to bake it. How do you guys do it?

  • I just cooked our meals and gave them diced up pieces of what we were eating. Teeth don't matter since they don't chew with front teeth anyway. Until they get their molars, they chew with their gums.

  • I drizzle olive oil (healthy fat) in a pan and cook the meat.

  • How old is your daughter? If she is regularly eating table food and has at least a couple of teeth, she can probably eat anything you are eating. You would probably want to put tougher things in the blender for a second, like meat.
    My son didn't like baby food for very long once he got a look at what we were eating. There is no reason why she couldn't eat whatever you were eating, unless it was too spicy or something.

  • Ok, thanks. I was just worried about the spices and stuff. I will use the evoo and stop being such a p*ssy about giving her new foods.

  • I wouldn't give meat to a baby, not until at least 18 months. Get your baby in the habit of eating vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans.
