Chicken with Carrots and CornPin

Babies need more protein than adults because they’re growing so fast. This is especially true in first few years of your babies life. Most of the time I cook with skinless, boneless chicken breasts, but last week I found organic/free range chicken thighs that looked delicious. The thigh is higher in fat then the breast, which is a good thing for babies and it also has more iron and twice as much zinc.
The first time I gave it to Kenya he kind of turned up his nose. I couldn’t figure it out since he loves carrots and corn. After try number two, I added a little hot water to thin it out and presto, he loved it. Always take into consideration the texture of babies food. Sometimes a creamy texture is all it takes.
