Delicious Beef Baby Puree

10 months

Newborns are born with enough iron stores to last 6 months, at around 6 months of age their iron stores begin to run low and they need to receive iron from their food. Iron is vital for baby’s growth and development. Red meat, including beef, is a great source of iron.


  •  2 teaspoons olive or sunflower oil
  • 1/2 small brown onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 1 small carrot, peeled, coarsely grated
  • 100g lean beef or pork mince
  • 1 tomato, finely chopped


  1.  Heat the oil in a medium frying pan over medium-low heat. Add the onion, garlic and celery and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until the onion softens. Add the carrot and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until tender.
