* Serving size will vary depending on your baby's age and appetite.  Each baby is unique and some days they will eat more than other days. 
  • When first introducing liver to your baby, keep a piece in the freezer and simply grate off the amount required each time. Add the frozen shavings to simmering, almost cooked vegetables in the final 5 minutes of cooking. Mash or purée the vegetable/liver mix.
  • Avoid giving your baby more than three teaspoons (15 grams) of liver a week. While liver is an excellent source of iron, it is also rich in Vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for health but too much can be harmful.
  • You can store leftover serves in ice-cube trays in the freezer. Heat each serve as required.
