This iron-rich recipe is great to use as one of baby’s first meals, and is an excellent way to introduce meat. It makes enough for freezing - do this in small single serve jars once cooled. Or freeze in ice cube trays. Once frozen, transfer to a plastic bag, seal, and return to freezer.

Including iron-rich leafy green vegetables from around six months of age is advised. Pop a leaf of chopped silverbeet or a handful of spinach into the saucepan towards the end of the cooking time.
