Babies have a small stomach, so each mouthful of food needs to be as nutrient dense as possible and this pâté packs a nutritional punch.  To supercharge food, start with half a teaspoon mixed into their favourite meal and increase to a maximum 2 teaspoons each week.

How Chicken Liver Benefits Healthy Babies

Firstly, chicken liver is not red or white meat; instead, we classify it as organ meat (offal). Organ meats are incredibly nutritious, and they offer far more nutritional value than regular muscle meat. Similar to most animal foods, chicken liver is a rich source of dietary protein, containing 24.5 grams protein per 100 grams. The protein in chicken liver is a “complete” protein, which means that it contains all nine of the amino acids that we require from our diet. These amino acids work as the building blocks for our body, and they are involved in everything from the growth and repair of our cells to hormone production and muscle building.

Consuming large and frequent amounts of chicken liver could potentially cause vitamin A toxicity. A small portion, approximately 1 teaspoon two times weekly should cause no issues.

  1. Add all the ingredients, except the butter to a saucepan and bring to the boil then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until the liver is cooked through with no pink meat when the liver is cut in two.

  2. Strain the liver mixture through a sieve to remove excess liquid.  Place the livers into a bowl adding the butter and use a stick blender or transfer to a food processor and blend until smooth.

  3. Divide into small portions and freeze.
