Baby Food With Turkey

Freshly cooked turkey may be offered as soon as your baby is ready for solid foods, around the age of 6 months. This does not apply to processed turkey.

Make sure you prepare your turkey in an age-appropriate manner. At the age of 6 months, the turkey should be offered in a smooth and runny puree.

How to prepare turkey for baby food?

Make sure the turkey you offer to your baby is freshly cooked. See the video below for instructions on how to roast your first turkey (for beginners)

Use the freshly cooked turkey in a runny puree. Or, if your baby is a bit older, in a chunky puree or mashed.
