Beef is a great source of easily absorbed iron, which your baby needs for healthy growth, development, and optimum energy levels.

If your baby is not used to the taste of beef, you may need to mix in a bit of fruit or veggies to the beef to help baby enjoy the first taste.

What you’ll love: Homemade meat baby food purees tend to be far tastier than those in the shops.

Baby's Firt Beef Casserole


  • You'll need
  • 15 ml avocado oil
  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 large potato, peeled and diced
  • 3 dried apricots, chopped
  • 150 ml tomato puree
  • 200-250 ml bone broth or just plain water

How to make it:

Heat the oil in a heavy-based saucepan and sauté the onion gently for 3 minutes, stirring.

Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the CHALMAR BEEF CUBES and stir, until browned on all sides.

Add the carrot, potato and dried apricots.

Pour over the tomato puree and bone broth/water.

Bring to the boil, reduce the heat as low as possible and cover with lid.

Simmer gently for about 1 hour or until the meat is tender.

Add a little more broth/water if necessary and stir occasionally.

Cool slightly, then purée in a food processor, or place in a bowl and use a hand-blender.
