Beef + Lamb New Zealand

Once your baby is comfortable eating red meat, around 6 months, you can begin preparing meals for your baby from the main meal. Meals need to be bland and the right texture for your baby, but flavours can be 'revved' up at the end of cooking for the rest of the family, as indicated in this recipe TIP Babies and toddlers shouldn't have salt added to their foods. Adults and older children can season their serving at the table.
