Christmas Baby Food: Gravy

Christmas Baby Food: Gravy

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.

Cook time: 20 minutes
Makes: 4 Adult portions

4-6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 small carrot, sliced
1/2 onion, roughly chopped
1 celery stalk, roughly chopped

  1. Place vegetables and meat in a small pan and pour over water to cover the meat.
  2. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes (or until the chicken is cooked through).
  3. Strain the stock into a bowl. Discard the bay leaf, vegetables and chicken.
  4. To thicken, add some baby rice.
