so we are not huge meat eaters, we eat chicken and pork but hardly ever beef unless it is hamburgers. Lucas' pediatrician said we should be giving him meat now so for those that eat meat, has your LO had any? how do you give it to them? i am not cool with pureeing meat (ew! lol) so i was either going to buy some organic jars if they exist or give him little pieces. since meat is kinda tough can they handle pieces yet? anyone given pieces to their LO?
I also have given chicken ground beef and ham. Steak pieces are too tough for nate right now. I am excited to try fish which i will be doing soon.
We don't eat meat but I have seen baby organic meat meals at the grocery store. I bet he'd do really well with really tender chicken in chicken soup or chicken salad. I'd steer clear of meat in a jar though. I smelled one once and it nearly made me puke. I'm a vegetarian and all but I still like the smell of good meat (BBQ season tests my resolve hardcore). That was not good meat. Don't feel too pressed to give him red meat. Babies under a year don't really digest it anyway. It won't hurt them. It'll pretty much just pass right through.
We don't eat red meat at all or other meat very often, but when we do, we give Rowan little bits. She has tried grilled chicken, ground turkey, swordfish, and halibut. For non-meat proteins, she loves almond butter, refried beans, and marinated tofu. She actually opted for the tofu over a fresh peach the other night at dinner.
If you cut the meat into small enough pieces, its fine without pureeing.

ok, the spammer was random...
Anyway...He has organic jars (I started making my own food but I don't have the time really with DS1 as well )
I totally didn't give DS1 meat and now all he'll eat is ham. It's so frustrating. I'm trying desperately not to make Tobey a fussy eater too. When he does have what we are having I just give him small chinks. It's soft so he just gums it to death
