Green Baby Puree with Chicken

It’s not even officially summer yet and the calendar is already filling up – playdates, soccer, swimming, movies in the park, picnics, oh and maybe spending some time getting ready for this baby that is coming…very very soon.

The last thing that is on my mind, and I know on yours, is spending all night cooking for the little one.  We need something easy, something delicious and something nutritious but most importantly we need something that requires very little time in front of the stove.

It’s a good thing this puree is really a one-stop-shop kinda meal and can be made in under 30 [mostly hands free] minutes. It is loaded with healthy green vegetables, lean protein and topped off with some apple sweetness. Mixed together you get a puree that is jammed packed with Calcium, Protein, Fiber, Vitamin A and Iron which is very important for healthy growth and development.

Everything you want your baby to love and eat in one easy puree.

It couldn’t get any easier then this.

I would recommend making and freezing a double or triple batch of this yummy puree for all of your busy summer nights ahead.
