Commercial gravies tends to be high in salt and are unsuitable for babies. This gravy recipe includes making up a chicken stock and thickening it up to make a gravy suitable for your weaning baby. For a tasty baby led weaning snack, serve as a dip with our Christmas Stuffing for Baby.
Another option is to use salt free stock cubes instead of making up the chicken stock.
