When to introduce: 10-12 months (check with your pediatrician) *

Stars: Chicken is high in protein and iron. It is one of the most easily digested of the meats you will feed to your baby. Chicken is most often recommended to be baby's first meat. Sweet potatoes are high in Vitamin A and beta carotene as well as potassium. 

Ingredients:
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into chunks
1 large sweet potato, cubed
1 bunch kale, stems removed and cut into 1 inch strips
1 cup homemade broth (chicken or vegetable)
2 tbsp. coconut oil
salt and pepper to taste (optional)

Directions:

1. Heat coconut oil in large skillet over medium heat. 
2. Add chicken and brown slightly
3. Add sweet potatoes, broth and kale.
4. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender (about 15 minutes).
5. Remove from heat and cool slightly before pureeing in a blender to desired conistency. If the puree is too thick, add more broth as needed. 


Servings: Fills about 4 Pouches

How long can these be kept in fridge? I’m assuming 3 days if they contain meat. Can you freeze the ones with kale or lettuce in them?
